Fun place to work and can be very awarding to make somebodies experience as a child a memorable one. Hours are constantly changing though with no consistency. Job prospects for progression are low.
Staff discounts in store and Lego.com. Free annual pass to Merlin attractions
Low pay - minimum wage
If management was on your side at all times and didnt try and catch you out, then working under them would be more enjoyable. At times, some employees were purely lazy and did not complete jobs/tasks well or atall. However personally, I enjoyed my time working there and would definately work there again if the time arose.
Rude management, ignore any issues brought to their attention including health and safety. We were all told in staff meetings that if we didn't like anything we should leave, managers deliberately ignored radio calls if they didn't want to deal with a situation, leaving it for people being paid alot less to deal with. More reliable members of staff were forced to do alot more than others because the company kept hiring unsuitable people for the job but just ignored issues until their contracts ran out. As a perk you get a magic pass so you have 20 tickets for merlin attractions after 6 weeks of work.
Magic pass, some supportive co-workers
Management, unequal work distribution, bad health and safety attitude
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Legoland Discovery Center?
The management here were very unorganised, with rotas only being handed out on average 4 days in advance of the start of the week. Would not recommend this as a good work place. Also a minimum wage for such an intense and stressful job doesn't help people staying in the job .
Some good staff discounts
long days, minimum wage
So I worked here for a decent amount of time, and at the start the team spirit was good, the atmosphere was great everything seemed amazing. After a while the cracks started to show from veteran members of staff, the new staff coming in, hours being taken for no reason. The days just got worse. Helping on departments your not trained on but have to learn because of poor work ethics. just the work-reward just isn't worth it.
Making peoples days.
Management, Staff, Pay, Atmosphere..
If you want a fun, exciting, career motivating, supportive workplace then I suggest you steer well clear of LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester. The management in this centre are a shambles. Certain areas of the centre are completely unsupported by management and left to pick up the pieces regarding guest concerns and health & safety. There are major flaws in the health & safety and day to day running of this establishment. There is no recognition or appreciation for going above and beyond for customers. Please avoid if you want a life :)
Merlin Magic Pass
Long hours. No social aspects. Fake co-staff. Unsupportive management. Run down centre.
Management treat the staff disgusting, they don't care at all... I would seriously work elsewhere than work here! It needs a big shake up of management and there approaches towards the team. Maybe being led by a bull in a China isn't best for this place.
Bad management that filters down from the top from long existing managers. Rudeness and laziness from some of the top managers. Working downstairs meant the manager in charge of retail would come downstairs when a problem arose and blame staff in front of customers. Lack of respect for staff underneath him. Be prepare to find children all day long, as well as dealing with annoyed customers due to expensive and long queues. Working closely with sealife and all staff meant you made friends ealisy but I wouldn’t stay for a career at legoland. Ideal for part timers. Low pay but magic pass allowed visit to all different kind of Merlin Attraction.
Long hours, bad management, low pay
Managers are rude, unappreciative of staff and unprofessional. Guest experience and cafe workers often treated disrespectfully by higher ranked members of staff. Staff are not valued as individuals and are treated as temporary convienent workers. Little to no chance of advancement in job roles. Only benefits and positive aspects of working at the centre is the annual merlin's pass and no late finishes.
