    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    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.
