Do I need a good command of German to work at BELANTIS?
Every BELANTIS employee is also a host. You should therefore be able to communicate, or ideally be fluent, in German, i.e. be able to hold a conversation in German. This is also important because it enables us to train you and guarantee your safety in the workplace.
Does BELANTIS cover travel costs for the interview?
Unfortunately, this is not possible due to the large number of applicants. However, if you have attended a personal appointment with us, we’d be more than happy to provide you with a letter of confirmation so that you can have your travel expenses reimbursed by the employment agency or through your tax return.
Can I work at BELANTIS during the school or university holidays?
Of course! Please note that you should be available for at least three weeks at a time so that you are able to work independently after extensive induction training.
Are there any accommodation options available for BELANTIS employees?
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer any accommodation options for our employees. However, if you would like to move to the local area, our colleagues from the HR department will be happy to advise you. They can also find you a reasonably priced guesthouse nearby for seasonal work.
Can I also get to BELANTIS via public transport?
Unfortunately, the bus to our theme park only operates during peak season. Since this bus line is adapted to our opening hours and not to employee shifts, we recommend commuting by car or bicycle (e.g. from the nearest S-Bahn stop).
What are the daily working hours like?
Our working hours vary depending on the field of work. As a rule, they are based on the park opening times and our employees work according to a rota.
Will I also need to work during weekends and bank holidays?
We always expect lots of visitors during weekends and bank holidays. And so, of course, we are always available for our guests and ready to work during these times. Of course, you will be given days off during the week to compensate for this.
What is the hourly pay at BELANTIS?
Our pay varies depending on the applicant’s job and level of experience. We’d be happy to talk to you about your earning potential in an initial phone interview after assessing your professional background.
