What are the best and worst things about your company?
As a Merlin Graduate Trainee, we enjoy 4 half-year's placements. It's so exciting to embrace new roles every 6 months, which makes me quickly learn a lot and have the confidence to be a leader in the near future. Nil.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The diversity of the different attractions and locations worldwide which makes it possible to gain a lot of international work experience. I am not only able to work at a company with different brands but I also have the chance to work together with people from all over the world.The many career opportunities that are offered and the difficulty to make a decision. There is so much to explore at Merlin that you don't want to miss out on an opportunity.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
This job is all about making fun! It is really nice to see the smiles and giggles and hear delighted sounds of children everyday. The pay isn't the best compared to other companies that offer a similar programme.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The people are the best part of Merlin. You are surrounded by people who really love what they do and are there to support you when needed and celebrate with you when you've achieved something. There is a complete focus on your development for the grad scheme, any move you make is based on where will benefit you the most, you're not just filling a space in an attraction. The scheme is also completely tailored to your individual needs, what works for one marketing grad won't necessarily work for another and the scheme is completely reflective of this. Other schemes such as many big retail chains just have a set pathway with no wiggle room; you will never get the most out of something unless it tailors to your needs for development. There is possibility to travel and go abroad; a big bonus on a grad scheme.Comparatively to other schemes the salary is low.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The best of Merlin Entertainments is the opportunity to globally mobilize, and the company's willingness to help find the right place for graduates' career development. Its Accelerate program is a very unique and promising one for those who desire managerial duties in the hospitality and tourism business.Nothing found so far.
