    Marketing Graduate Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments in May 2017.

    Interview

    Application online through school > online tests > assessment centre including final interview. It was definitely an exhausting process as it took over 5 months to hear back the final result. The people I met at the assessment centre, including the HR, were very sweet and helpful, and they tried to make it as informative as possible.

    Hospitality Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL (US)

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (Orlando, FL (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Recruiter reached out for a screening. It was difficult to work with the recruiter - he wouldn't schedule a time even though I asked multiple times. He seemed to expect me to be available whenever he called and he was never able to answer when I reached out to him. It would have been more efficient to schedule a time. Met with hiring manager a few months later for an in person interview. Very nice guy but did not ask me many questions and mostly talked about the position.

    Aquarist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (Grapevine, TX (US)).

    Interview

    Other than your typical questions about former jobs and such, they tend to ask situational questions. They'll ask about how your former experience helps prepare you for this role. They'll ask you to describe what you would do in "worst case scenario" aquarium goes down situations. They may ask about your feelings on euthanasia because this is a good question to "feel out" a candidate. Here's a hint: there are times when it's necessary. You'll also get daily husbandry questions regarding the care of animals. You typically first get a phone interview, then if you make it to the next round, you'll get a Skype interview so they can see what you look like and see how you respond to questions via your body language. The questions here can either become more detailed regarding husbandry, or if they were detailed in the first interview, they could be more questions to get to know you. They are typically pretty good about letting you know either way about the position so you don't have to wonder.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you feel about euthanasia?   1 Answer
    • What would you do if you came in and a tank was cloudy?   1 Answer

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (Orlando, FL (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Part of a job fair. Long wait with too few interviewers. Informational video was repetitive and more irritating that helpful. Interviewers were personable. Not as well organized as would have liked.
