Santa Claus in York
on 26 March 2021
A fun place to work
As Santa in the grotto I enjoyed playing the part and making people happy. If that's the type of person you are then you will enjoy this job but if not then don't do it.You can be working for upto 6 hours without a break and on a busy day it can be non stop.The costume can be very warm and you need a sense of humour to keep you going especially when you have technical issues causing delays and angry parents/upset kids.

Fun workplace
Overall a really fun job, worked with great people, job was fairly simple, received training a few weeks before the job started.
Elf in Aylesbury

Wonderful workplace with challenging clientele
The Wendover/Aylesbury Grotto is an excellent place to work. The whole team is lovely and the working environment is healthy and happy, just how you’d hope a Christmas job would be. The customers can be slightly harder to deal with. You will on occasion have to deal with and placate some very aggressive customers (at least until the manager gets there to take them off your hands). If you struggle with conflict then retail (even when tinted with Christmas magic) may not be the most suitable career path.
Elf in Beaumont Leys
on 27 March 2020
Was fun and good for a holiday job
The job is fairly fun, if you love working with kids and children. Expect what you imagine an elf role would be like - dealing with children, parents and family (and all the pros and cons associated with that), dealing with stock, little bit of acting and presenting skills. It pays minimum wage, provides good experience with working in customer service and with kids, and is a good seasonal/holiday job for people like students or seasonal workers. You also tend to meet really nice coworkers and have a fairly fun assessment day I would definitely work there again, as a side hustle, but this is definitely not a long term deal. Also, depending on you're location, you could be out in the cold for a while and on your feet for most of the day
GROTTO MANAGER in Basildon

Great seasonal work.
Suited me perfectly as I worked on a holiday park so the season finished & this started! Lovely making memories for children and adults alike. Reasonably priced so was nice to feel like you weren’t ripping people off. I feel the training was great although a little rushed and for newcomers could be a little daunting. I worked 4 years with the company.
