    I worked at LEGOLAND full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fantastic first job to learn the ropes excellent promotion opportunities fun colleagues Managers were in your shoes a few years ago so have a lot of respect for everyone very flexible with holidays and moving around departments fantastic HR team modern canteen and changing rooms Salary increase every year and each promotion is a nice increase This was my first job and I learnt so much, i was at university during my employment and it was just so flexible, i had the opportunity to be promoted as a restaurant manager but i chose to join a graduate programme instead, it was a tough choice but no regrets as i only have good memories here.

    Cons

    Not really any cons because the company is very well organised.

    I worked at LEGOLAND part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The children were fun and built fascinating stuff. Free tickets to Merlin attractions. High value of a team and everyone would relate to each areas person and be helpful.

    Cons

    They would give out Rota's and feedback to holiday requests really late and you would never know when you could plan for other things. They tend to put you in the same area for hours on end until you turn into mush. Breaks were never reliable, but they did improve on regulating it. No benefits for working through Christmas or bank holidays.
