How would you like to spend three weeks in Florida testing our Orlando’s most popular theme parks? Well an opportunity has arisen that will give one lucky person a £3000 salary to do a few weeks of exciting work for Ocean Florida. They’re asking for applicants to take on the role of Theme Park Tester. Now we’re not quite sure whether this can be truly regarded as a competition or whether it’s a job application. However we’ve decided it falls somewhere in a grey area and for creative comping types it’s well worth a look.
How To Apply
If you’d like this amazing opportunity you will need to be apply via Ocean Florida. Initially you are asked for personal details, your Instagram username and whether you’ve been to Florida before. You’re also asked to answer the following questions: “what’s been your top roller coaster experience to date, and why” and “tell us which Disney character you would be and why”. These two elements are why it feels a bit like a competition! You have until the end of January to take part.
This is only the first stage! After the closing date, a shortlist of successful applicants will then be required to complete a video application. After that there will then be phone interviews. Finally Ocean Florida will host one-to-one video interviews and then one lucky candidate will be hired. This is why we it doesn’t feel like a competition because that’s quite a lengthy process to go through. Also winners of a competition don’t usually have to work on their prize holiday.
Three Weeks In Florida
The winner of the interview will spend three weeks in Florida reviewing various parks based on overall experience, food & drink, souvenirs, suitability for families/couples, thrill factor for each ride, shows, parades and photo opportunities. As well as doing these reviews the lucky candidate will be capturing video/photos to share via social media. Being social media savvy and having the ability to take good photos and video will be beneficial to any prospective applicants.
Whilst the winning candidate does have to do a bit of work there are benefits. These include a £3000 salary for the three weeks and travel and accommodation costs covered for you and a plus one. Car hire is also included as well as fast passes/express passes at the theme parks. If you’ve ever wanted to immerse yourself in the rollercoasters and rides of Florida then this is a different way to do it.
To make your application head over to Ocean Florida and complete the application before the 31st January 2020. Good luck and let us know if you apply.
