        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

        I worked at LEGOLAND full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        The staff benefits (magic passes, staff socials, discount, etc), the pay is good and the atmosphere between collegues in your area AND across the park and other departments is great. Everone gets on with everyone. The staff socials are roughly 1/2 a month (which includes a treasure hunts in the park for all dep. and atik as well as the star ball at the end of the season). I loved working there and only called in sick...

        Cons

        You ALWAYS have to be on your game and cant be even a hairline out of place, even if youre having a really bad day

        Advice to Management

        Listen to staff queries and concerns more. Not be as biased with staff that have also become good friends

          I worked at LEGOLAND part-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          flexible working days, good benefits - you get 20 free passes to any Merlin attraction as an employee after 3 months of working there.

          Cons

          Get treated with little respect when working, managers tend not to care if you have any problems while working and often go over the maximum operating hours for the rides.

          Advice to Management

          Management should listen to the employees more, If they are unhappy then they tend to leave. You could reduce staff turnover massively if you kept them happy.

          I worked at LEGOLAND full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          The only good thing in merlin it’s the magic passed with the free tickets for the merlin attractions

          Cons

          Working in the industry since nearly 20 years. Worked for few months at the LEGOLAND hotel as restaurant manager. This job was by far the worst I had. No organisation, it was a complete mess. No staff food (had to bring yours or pay for it), always short staff,Throw away some poor young staff without a clue on the floor, so you just have to try your best with it.the F&B director is ok, but his lieutenants are very...

          Advice to Management

          Really need a proper organisation in the F&B department and give some proper training to every single member of staff. And properly take consideration of people which working hard. Don’t pay your staff with miserable wages and stop this general arrogance in the management.

          I worked at LEGOLAND full-time

          Pros

          A unique job, can be fun at times, good one-off social events.

          Cons

          The managers can be rude, no staff support, little pay for the hours, can get boring if you are stuck on the same ride all day, very little development, a lot of favourtism (if you are not liked by the other staff you will get the bad jobs). Overall a bad environment to work in. A lot of petty dramas between the staff.

          Advice to Management

          Care about your staff more please.
