      Pros

      The perks and benefits you receive with any merlin company are great

      Cons

      The pay and treatment you get from legoland is very bad and rules set by managements is awful, budget cuts constantly happening and people being laid off and worse treatments to lower positioned staff and departments

      Pros

      30% discount on food/merchandise and free Merlin passes m.

      Cons

      Terrible place to work, the managers are Disrespectful And yell at the employees.From my time working there I’ve experienced immense amount of disappointment and just frustration with that organization. I was available to work five days a week and they would schedule me to work every day even on my off days. There would be long hour shifts we would get like a 11hrs+ You would only get a 30 minute lunch break. Like that’s crazy!!! They have minors Working more than 50 hours a week and getting part-time benefits. This list could go on and on of the disorganization and lack of Professionalism the company has. Although it’s the first season there are a lot of mistakes that made that are unacceptable from an employee standpoint and a guest standpoint. Not to mention that they are transphobic and racist. Legoland is overpriced and overrated and is not a good place to work or go to at all. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!

      -Unique working environment with vibrant colours & focus on entertainment for kids. -Free tickets to Legoland & other theme parks by far best benefit -Various company social events (if that's your sort of thing) -Nice back of house/employee areas with good facilities -Generous discounts on Lego (Again, if that's your sort of thing) -Genuinely inclusive and diverse

      Pros

      Fun atmosphere with good people. Nostalgic aspect if you grew up going to Legoland

      Cons

      Poor leadership. Undermanned shops. Part time workers get used as full time due to less benefits required for part time workers

      Pros

      LEGOLAND is a fun company full of creativity. You get to carry your ideas into reality and thought are not long away from action. Everything is revolved about a great and unique LEGOLAND park and when you go there, you always get a smile on your face.

      Cons

      Tough run company through ownership of Merlin Entertainments, where main focus is to satisfy shareholders. Always.

      Pros

      Legoland is a great first job as a teenager. Make a lot of friends considering 95% of the employees you're around are within 5 years of your age. Flexible with hours, will give you off what you need and are ALWAYS looking for people to pick up more shifts. Work at waterpark, almost everyone agrees that it's way better than the regular park.

      Cons

      Don't always get required breaks. Exhausted from lots of standing. Half the employees don't care about their job and are just there because their parents forced them to get a job.

      Pros

      As CEO i get kego for frea and the hot dogs are superb. Although, som people may find me bias, I can assure you THAT IS NOT THE CASE. Thus, if you are over 9 years old an work there full time you will recieve 523.5k per year. No incentive or remunition packages are in place unfortunately. FIRST FIVE PEOPLE TO CALL UP NOW WILL RECIEVE 1 LEGO MINIFIGURE AND FREE RIDES AT LEGOLAND Call: 1300 321 456

      Cons

      The number above could possibly be redirected to apple support, as we are in harsh competition with them and sabotage is what they do best. #rektapple from CEO, Paul Hindenburg
