    For a first job out of high school, I was impressed with how well I was treated"

    Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) Scotrun, PA

    ProsFair and friendly management, fun environment to work in, decent pay for a high school grad's first job

    ConsCrowds come in waves throughout the week and each day, and sometimes breaks are compromised or you're asked to work more hours or shifts than you'd like. During heavy hours the front desk agents were often overwhelmed and overstimulated because of lack of staffing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure there are enough employees available to take care of large crowds during peak hours.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    Great People

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt wasn't just a job, I grew a family. Some of the greatest people I ever met. Learned a lot and gained a multitude of experience.

    Cons365 days....they are always open. Rotation off on holidays but be prepared to work them. As well as weekends.

    Awesome environment

    Ambassador of Fun (Former Employee) Scotrun, PA

    ProsGreat opportunity to entertain guests. I had a fun time getting to work with my co-workers and dress in the mascot costumes.

    ConsThe hours started right in the middle of the day. It felt like a long day at times, but felt like my whole day was taken over.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRaise wages of entertainers by a bit, or offer opportunities more often where designated entertainers can earn that increased pay.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Loved it!

    Food & Beverage (Former Employee) Mason, OH

    ProsAmazing culture- my coworkers became my family. Flexible hours, fun place to be, always meeting new people.

    ConsSometimes I would show up for a shift and was sent home because there weren't enough guests to warrant me being there (worked in the restaurant, too many hosts and servers were often scheduled when the guest forecast was low)

    Advice to Senior ManagementLoved the company and loved working here. My only advice would be to recognize people with alternative appearances and to allow piercings and tattoos within reason. I know it is a family environment, but plenty of families have parents with tattoos and piercings, or if they don't, they are generally accepting of that aesthetic. Its not fair to your workers to be forced to wear a long sleeved shirt under their uniform on a 90+ degree day in order to hide a tattoo of a flower.

    Great Family Work Place

    Web Developer (Current Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsLots of little benefits and fun group of people to work with something new to do every week.

    ConsThere really isn't a ton of downside to working here except there isn't a ton of places to eat around here.
