  1. Hello, so for a while I've been struggling with what I want to do as a job. I have been trying to work with animals but so far my experience in the industry has been really negative. My second biggest passion/interest since I've been little has been theme parks. I was wondering if anyone here is or has worked as a ride operator? Is it hard to get a job at a theme park? Which theme parks are the best to work at? What are the career promotions like? Do certain theme parks let you work all year round? I'm not too knowledgeable on the subject so I'd really appreciate everyone's input. I'm also do have anxiety so I'm worried I'm going to mess up with the safety stuff.
  2. Hi all, Just wanna let you all know that I’m now officially employed with Luna Park Sydney! I’ll be working in Head Office helping with Disability & Inclusion within the park starting next month. As somebody who’s experienced the highs and lows of someone with a disability, you should see over the next few months changes around the park to make it as accessible as possible. If you have any ideas, please do let me know and I’ll see what I can do. But enough with the boasting, let’s talk about the actual interview! Please note that this is as of November/December 2022. This was for casual roles within the park for the summer. That was my original intent until they offered it to me instead as it’d be more productive and less stressful. The activities and qualifications required may change in the future. So always read the fine detail and check with the park what’s required before arrival. For more fine detail, please also contact the park before you arrive. And please don’t rely on some squeaky teen online for all your information, I’ll only be talking broadly about what happens. I‘ve kept it as a secret until everything was set up with my new role, which happened yesterday. To apply, Luna Park normally announces the application a few weeks before the interviews, and those are just under a month before you start. You also need to be 16, make a resume, and have some form of ID on you, like a Passport, Drivers Licence, or Photo Card. Then you can apply online with a Google Questionnaire. There were 12,000 people that came to the interviews on 22/11 and 3/12/22. So it was very busy and they had to do it in a way to process as many people through as possible. So please be patient and if you require assistance, please contact them before arrival (but don’t worry if you forget, there are staff there to help). You might be able to bring someone to support you if you ask in advance. Once you arrive, you’ll be greeted by a staff member who’ll direct you over to the Coney Island entrance and you’ll sign in at Hungry Horse. You’ll be assigned a number in order of arrival, remember this number as it’s important for later. You’ll be given free Popcorn and Fairy Floss while you wait. Your group will then get called and you’ll get sent to Crystal Palace. You’ll start at the Sunset Room and be greeted by staff and you’ll sit in front of the TV and be shown a tape which explains what all the roles mean and what it’s like working at the park. After this, you’ll have one of many opportunities to ask questions to the staff. The group will then split to 6 corners of the room depending on what you applied for. There’s Sideshow/Merchandising, Rides (18+, not for THAT kind of reason), Guest Relations/Ticketing, Cleaning, Venues, and Food & Beverages. You’ll then get a colour sticker on your tag distinguishing you for which role you’re applying for. You’ll then proceed to the ballroom by your number. You’ll be greeted with some music played by the managers. You’ll then be put in a circle where you’ll introduce each other and get to know each other and do some more dancing! And remember you’re doing it in front of just under 100 people! Surprisingly everybody made it through that. The only comment I’ll make is that I aced it (probably)! You’ll then be put in a line behind the wall by number and be sent upstairs where you’ll wait to get interviewed. The lower the number, the sooner the interview starts. See? That’s why it’s important to be early! After the interview, you can go on free rides on Dodgem City and Big Dipper over and over again! And maybe even see a TV show being made! If you got hired, you’ll have a training day about a week or two later and then start when the School Holidays start. Hope that this helps anybody applying to the park and I wish you all the best!
  3. Hi all! I have a Movieword group interview coming up for a retail position at both Movieworld and Wet n Wild, and I was wondering if anyone had advice on what to wear, what to expect and how to handle a group interview? I've never had an interview at a theme park before, or a group interview. Thanks!
