Fun and enjoyable place to work
Admissions Host (Current Employee) – Chessington, Surrey – 9 October 2017
Chessington is a great summer job with most employees, and mangers, being between the ages of 16-21, creating a fun environment. Peak season is incredibly busy but the day goes quicker. As an admissions host we would have to be in at 8:30 and could only leave after the last guest had, so most shifts during summer would be between 11 and 12hrs, making it hard to have a have a good work/life balance. Guests at times could be extremely rude and patronising, given the age of most of the employees, but management would be around to deal with the most difficult guests. Occasionally, it would take managers a while to be with you if you contacted them, especially around mid-afternoon. Overall, it was a fun place to work and really improves your team-working and customer service skills.
