Interviewer emails you to say that you are shortlisted and asks for your availabilities to set the interview date to suit you. Sent a link to an MS Teams video call. Unfortunately, the interviewer experienced technical issues on the initial interview date and on the day, so it caused some inconvenience.

The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments in May 2021

Interview

It was a simple process. Spoke to HR during a phone screen then had a phone interview with a hiring manager where I disclosed I was pregnant. (Trying to be transparent and honest.) Even though the conversation went well, the next day I was declined from both jobs I had applied to within a few hours of each other leaving me to feel like they didn’t want to even give a pregnant woman a chance. After a couple of months since the interview, I found the person they hired on LinkedIn who had much less experience than I offered and it felt like a slap in the face. It did not seem like a fair process and I felt discriminated against for being an expectant mother.

Interview Questions
  • Why do you want to work at Merlin? If you could meet any celebrity, who would it be?

They call me first, and then I had a second interview in person. But the salary was low. Not really understand the marketing manager still want to make an interview even they know my salary expectation is higher than what they can offer.

I applied online. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (Windsor, South East England, England, England)

Interview

The application process was straight-forward and the email communication was good. An interview was confirmed via email. It was a group interview, set-out as an assessment centre in which teamwork, communication and creative skills were observed. This was followed by a one-to-one interview with a member of the Models team, during which I showed my portfolio and gave a brief overview of projects I'd worked on previously. The staff were very welcoming and encouraging.

Interview Questions
  • There were model-making tasks with supplied LEGO bricks and parts. There were also questions about how you work as part of a team and your hands-on creative skills.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (Orlando, FL) in Sep 2020

Interview

Telephone call with the recruiting and hiring managers (both brand new to the company). I was told the new org group and HR & payroll data system was Workday (cloud-based) and the data had not been up to par since the Oct 2019 implementation. I understood they needed an experienced HRIS pro knowledgeable in numerous HR functions to assist the internal client. A couple of days later I received a call (very appreciated btw) informing me they promoted an internal employee. So, I took it as my interview was a formality for compliance and data integrity is not so much the priority.

Interview Questions
  • "We have a few minutes let so I'll ask a few personal questions. Can you code?"
  • Do you think you're overqualified?
