Tips & Best Practices for Family Entertainment Centers

Are You Having Fun?

work-fun-sqAsk any job applicant seeking a job at a Family Fun Center, “Why do you want to work here?” Their first response is usually, “It looks like a fun place to work!”

This exchange is usually followed by, Interviewer: “And why should we hire you?” Applicant: “Because I’m a people person!” Every single time this happens I get tickled. (In the south, that means I have to really hold back so that I don’t burst out laughing).

Maybe I’m a little skeptical. I believe that “I’m a people person,” and “this looks like a fun place to work” are NOT good indicators that this candidate can come close to doing a great job. Many of you who know TrainerTainment understand that we are super focused on using a group styled audition program to hire people.

So, now you have a clear guideline about how to hold this audition. What should you do with the people that really shine during the process?

  1. You could just hire them
  2. You may want to spend a little one on one time with them as well

If you pick number two, then we would recommend asking the following questions.

  1. How do you handle doing the things you don’t want to do? Give me an example of a time when you completed a task that was NOT what you wanted to do.
  2. I’d like to know how you normally respond when you think you’ve been treated unfairly.
  3. Then of course, ask why they want to work for you and why you should hire them… You deserve to be tickled!
