Attractions Associate (Former Employee), carlsbad ca – September 24, 2012
Cons: no money. it took me two years to go from 8 an hour to 8.16
Legoland is the place to be as long as your only in it for money. there is no advancement in the company unless you suck up. leads ALWAYS play favorites and NEVER have your back when dealing with guests problems. If your kid isnt 34 inches too bad you should have done research before showing up.
Pros: free entrance to the park, free parking, free pass to bring friends and family, discounts in the park
Cons: lack of communication
Working with the kids are great. Their parents on the other hand are a nightmare 99.9%. And that's because they don't know how to READ! They just automatically assume that if their kid can go on one ride, they can go on all. Good luck with that.
Working with some of the other MC's have been great.
The downfall: Lack of communication! The communication – more... needs a major overhaul! I've found stuff out through fellow MC's rather than from my Leads. That is one of the hardest things to deal with is when you find things out from fellow co workers and not from your leads.
if you work in attractions, being out in the elements is tough. It's either hot with horrible humidity or you get soaked from having to stand out in the rain. – less
Food and Beverage Cashier/Server (Former Employee), May, CA – July 4, 2012
learned how to multi-task while under pressuer, learned the ability to work with a cash register as well as handle money, open a drawer as well as close one and count the money. The coworker are nice and they are either there just to work or they become your friend outside of work, which is everywhere. They are very considerate and help to make sure – more... you understand things. – less
Working at legoland is great. Working with kids and making them happy is the best job. The hardest part is the parents. They make things harder than they are. Like reading the signs and measure their kids to make sure that they can go on the ride. Besides all that every else is really amazing.
Fun workplace environment. I recommend anyone who needs part-time work to apply.
admission/retail cashier (Former Employee), Schaumburg, IL. – February 27, 2012
Pros: good lunches, fun working with adults and children, good food, love the indoor amusement park
Cons: wished pay was a little greater, retail area was a little larger, more lego styles for adults to buy
Overall, Legoland was a fun place to work for. I liked working with the kids and enjoying putting smiles on their faces. Stocking different Lego styles for all to see. Management was being fair about hours, and how to provide excellent Customer Service to the customers. Training was also excellent and I had no problem learning my way around the store. – more... It took a while how to learn to count down drawers at the end of the day, However, Once I got the hang of it ; it became easier. I will recommend anyone whose looking for part-time work to apply. The only thing I didn't like was going to the mall to work in the booth area. I think that is a bit of an inconvenience if you don't have transportation. – less
Retail Assistant (Former Employee), Windsor – November 22, 2012
Pros: discounted entry tickets for friends and family
A typical day I would say would be the day when I had to work an extra as one of my Coolidge was absent and thus his part of responsibility I had to see. Work at my last job [ Legoland, Windsor ] I learned how to deal with situation and with different nature of customer. Moreover I would say that my manager and my co-workers were just like an team where – more... each figures makes an hand. My hardest part of job was during high season when park use to be full and thus we had to start early in the morning and finish very late. But still each day was having some different feeling, passion, which made the days easy, funny and memorable. – less
Legoland was an extremely fun place to work with good staff members
Grounds Maintenance (Former Employee), Windsor – October 25, 2012
Pros: you recieved a merlin pass after working there for 6 weeks, this gives you 20 free vouchers to get into any merlin attraction for free.
Cons: pay wasnt sufficient for the horrible job my team had to do, often long days in the summer (not that i minded but most did)
Everyone had different roles to help the park maintain its good reputation. My role was back of house areas and cleanliness of the park before and after opening hours. I pressure washed patios and pathways, emptied sulo bins, litter picked, directed traffic in the car park (odd occasions), helped out landscape with hedge cutting and mulching and any – more... odd jobs like removals that needed to be done for higher management. – less
warehouse assistant (Former Employee), warehouse – August 24, 2012
Pros: free merlin pass, were you could go to all the top attractions
A normal day working in the warehouse, would be picking orders or retail and f&b resturants and delivering there orders, unloading deliveries and putting the goods away, and locating them, printing and confirming the orders, got on really well with my co-workers and management, working from start to finish was enjoyable as got on well with everyone, – more... most hardest part of the day is when we would have a large delivery of lego which would be around 200 pallets, but working well as a team we would get it all away in a couple of days – less
