Everything Is Awesome – LEGOLAND Is Hiring Builders
If you've ever wanted to be a 'master builder,' this is your chance.
If your dream job is building and designing Lego structures, then you may just have what it takes.
The Huffington Post reports that recently, the owner of LEGOLAND theme parks Merlin Entertainment opened a new factory in Florida, where they hired 50 designers and model builders with a plan to hire around 20 more.
The requirements to apply include having a high school diploma and taking a "pre-employment physical."
DiyZone.tips, found that the hiring process puts you through an intense trial that includes multiple interviews and a lot of Lego building. It looks as if you will be required to build models while being timed as well as having to build 'freestyle' models.
Hopefully 'freestyle' means I would have the chance to impress them with my expert spaceship crafting.
Here's a little more on the job description:
This individual builds LEGO models in our off-site Model Shop- MMM Studios. Must have LEGO building experience and be able to design and build sturdy, accurate, complicated, safe and installable LEGO models for a wide variety of LEGOLAND attractions including miniature scale models and/or life sized organic models from prototypes, diagrams or computer generated instructions. This position requires strong communication during design and building of models, good organization during the completion and documentation phases of the projects and a willingness to complete all tasks necessary to creating and installing models and displays.
Requires previous experience in LEGO model building, (architectural and/or sculptural), basic computer knowledge, a good knowledge of LEGO parts, good communication skills, ability to give and receive constructive criticism, ability to work in a team and a positive attitude. Strong focus, concentration, good craftsmanship, patience and a sense of humor are a must. Artistic education, background, or experience helpful but not required.
Imagine going into work every day to all those colors and blocks and thinking, "what shall I try to re-create out of Legos today?"
Maybe you could end up building models for the NY LEGOLAND.
