cashier and ring sales (Current Employee), Schaumburg, IL – February 18, 2014
Pros: the people, 30% off legos
Cons: no breaks, often short staffed, stressfull rush
The thing that is keeping me here is the people (Fellow Employees) Or I would have left by now. The work enviornment is very stressfull, We really get breaks, almost always understaffed then half to do 3 different peoples jobs at once. They are stingy on raises and compensation. Don't get me wrong there are fun times, but this place can become VERY – more... stressful – less
employee (Current Employee), Winter Haven, FL – January 15, 2014
Pros: expressions on the guest faces
Cons: no benefits, no respect for the non management worker, place needs to be repaired and cleaned
Guest experiences are the best part of the job and then comes the co-workers. The hardest part of the job is not being appreciated for what you do, credit taken for your ideas by management. Management needs to be improved

Admissions (Former Employee), Windsor, ENG – November 4, 2013
a typical day of work involved working in a team and also individually, I had to help guests with any questions or complaints that they had, sell tickets, make annual passes and greet people as they entered the park. from working at LEGOLAND Windsor I have been guest service trained and how to use various equipment and technology.
Great place to advance....if you're in the right group
Supervisor (Former Employee), Winter Haven, FL – September 21, 2013
LEGOLAND Florida is nothing but a high school in a workplace clothing. If you don't befriend the right group from the start you will never move up. The management is backstabbing, manipulative, contradictory, and immature. Be careful when filling out the annual "confidential" employee survey. If your department is like mine was, you will get called – more... in to a room and interrogated as to why you answered like you did. My department management arranged "round table" discussions in Human Resources with the leads to pry for information about their supervisors and then took that information for gospel without letting supervisors explain or refute anything. Anything great you do will be swept under the rug and anything you slip on will be in the spotlight for months. No recognition for a job well done. – less
Attractions operator (Former Employee), Carlsbad, CA – September 12, 2013
for the amount of money a park generates and charges, they should be able to pay their employees more money. you work extremely hard (obviously a lot of rules and regulations) with little to no reward. great for high school students looking for a summer job. the work is monotonous. but prepared to get no appreciation. you only get free tickets if you – more... are a full time employee aka if youve been there for years. – less
Stocked and made various sales (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – August 31, 2013
Pros: team members, environment
Everyday was a new exciting day, there was no typical ordinary day. You had to adjust to what was going on at a moments notice, and give your best attitude.You were never thrown into a awkward position the managers were always a walkie talkie call away!
Food Service Associate (Former Employee), flordia – August 22, 2013
there's a lot at Legoland I've learn that it takes a hard worker to their jobs the management was a little a though to handle but i mange through it most of my co-workers were OK until you really get to know them but it was great to meet new people the hardest part of the job was the dish washing i was always by my self unless someone offer helps or – more... i have to ask more then once the most enjoyable part of the job was waking up every morning to get ready for work when we get it's just a little talk and play and then get to work when we open up – less
Various Positions within Park (Former Employee), Winter Haven, FL – August 16, 2013
Pros: cheaper stuff for employees and free admissions into the park
Cons: pay wasnt the best but compensated with other things
A typical day was steady working. I learned many positions and had fun! Management was understanding and co-workers were usually there to lend a hand when needed, The hardest part was EXTREMLY busy days and not enough crew to do everything. The most enjoyable part was seeing kids and parents enjoying their vacation and loving the things there!
Food and Beverage Server (Current Employee), Winter Haven, FL – August 13, 2013
Pros: teaches you how to multi task, teaches team work
A typical day at my job is to open up the outlet Castle Burger. I go in and prepare what is needed for the day. I rotate and stock up everything that is also needed . Then start my day off by taking peoples orders, cooking it, and preparing it.
Food & Beverage Associate (Former Employee), Carlsbad, CA – July 10, 2013
Cons: no healthcare, irratic work schedule
A business that caters to small children can be a lot of fun but at times challenging. I loved dealing with families having fun and making their experience the best possible. The hardest part of the job was not getting enough hours to support myself and not many advancement opportunities.
Retail Associate (Current Employee), Carlsbad, CA – July 2, 2013
Pros: fun work environment
Cons: heavy customer traffic
I work in the main souvenir shop in the front of the park. Evening shifts are very fast paced and hectic in the summer, but employees help each other and learn to handle any experience. I learned to be self-efficient, provide excellent customer service, maintain a clean environment, and handle cash efficiently. My co-workers made the job fun, and the – more... overall environment and work ethic of the company promotes a good time. – less
