    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Merlin Entertainments part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    .Get to work with a real variety of people all chosen for their personality and love theme parks.
    .Good management (Cade and Jamie in Ents)
    .Merlin Pass-You become real popular
    .Some really fun roles available on occasion-Ministry of Sound nights as an example

    Cons

    .Pay-Can earn more in a supermarket
    .Outside of Ents management very poor and often too young to be good decision makers.
    .A lot of repetition
    .Some in HR have favourites and reflected in shifts given out- great when you get them but breeds issues in a team!

    Advice to Management

    Pay people more and invest more in the park-Merlin talk about competing with Disney but are so far off the mark in that respect

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (Staines, England) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Good communication however assessment centres are held by hiring managers which creates incredibly subjective opinions.
    Still not competency based interviews.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    None at all, large taboo.
