How should you prepare for an interview at Chester Zoo?

3 answers

  • The first interview: Prepare to be told you may have to complete a group activity before your interview. An example is being given a scenario e.g; “a family is lost inside the zoo/they need this & that - what would you do”. You would then present this in your individual interview. This is how they compare you to other candidates first. The second part is attending a HR induction. This is getting a photograph taken & filling out paperwork. The third instalment is all of the chosen employees gathering in a hotel venue to receive customer service training. (For me) this included sitting at a table with people you do not know & completing activities and working as a team all day. Management also use this as a way to spot good workers. Confidence is key (leadership, public speaking & being social is needed) people with social anxiety or similar disorders like myself may struggle.

  • Interviews are in groups and involve role playing etc. Dress smart and take a bottle of water.

  • Research as much as you can about the company, people and ethos and know what you can do to benefit them.

Help jobseekers learn about the company by being objective and to the point.
