Basic Tips for Your Legoland Application

Before submitting a Legoland application, you need to be familiar with and comfortable with the company’s vision for its Model Citizens. Employees are expected to remain professional and in-character if they can be seen by guests of the park. Model Citizens are to keep the experience of the guests as their number one priority always. As most positions require interactions with children, Model Citizens are expected to do so appropriately and energetically to make sure families receive a consistently positive level of service.

When completing your Legoland application, the additional questions page and the employment history are the most key factors that lead to interviews. Employment with Legoland is competitive. So, you should be ready to provide a detailed work history with all relevant training and experiences you have. If you are a young worker with little or no work experience, it is recommended to include community service and school activities that you participate in with your application instead of a work history. If you have completed any internships, include this information as well.

Legoland Interview Tips

When you are contacted for an interview, you should immediately prepare to answer questions related to providing excellent customer service, explain how you will positive report to work, and how you will balance work and school if you are a student.

Prospective employees should dress professionally, but a full suit is not required. Slacks and a dress-top should suffice for most interviews unless you are applying for a full-time professional position. In this case, you may opt for a suit.

Always bring a copy of your resume and your identification in case human resources requests these documents. If you are invited to a group interview, you may want to bring a notepad and a pen to take notes.
