Six Flags Interview

The original founder of Six Flags was Angus Wynne, who opened the very first of the Six Flags parks – Six Flags Over Texas in 1961.  He is considered a pioneer in the family entertainment industry.

After studying other pioneers that were around him, Mr. Wynne realistically took his own imagination and vision and generating this whole new type of entertainment for the whole family.  He originally thought of area parks large in range but close to places where people lived, and making them affordable and convenient.

Six Flags Interview Tips

Here are some interview tips that can possibly help you with an interview at Six Flags:

Tip # 1 Study the Six Flags website under “opportunities” and decide which section of the park as well as which park you would like to work in.

Tip # 2 Have a good idea of why you want to work for Six Flags because they will want to know – are you a college student, someone who wants stage entertainment experience or a homemaker working for extra money now that the kids have left home.  Have your goals totally worked out.

Tip # 3 Be out going, very excited about working for them, stay focused on the interview and speak in a clear voice.

Tip # 4 Be sure you know where you are going before the interview – you do not want to get lost and end up being late.

Follow these tips as there will be hundreds of people interview at the start of the spring and summer season.
