    Friendly environment, enjoyable if you are used to being around large crowds.

    Minimal hours for part time. During the fall season, I was only brought in for about 8-12 hours a week.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great even management is very friendly. It's extremely easy to make friends working.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible along with hours being cut. As well as being assigned odd tasks otherwise it's alright. Some people work at to slow of a pace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep interacting with team members. But work at a faster pace or delegate some responsibility and make a decision and stick with it.

    I worked at Six Flags full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great benefits! free entry plus a friend, discounts in retail and discounts at certain food places around the park, plus you get free entry to any six flags owned place, including hurricane harbor! So many hours, you can make a huge pay check if you just keep staying late(they'll probably love it)

    Cons

    its hot hot hot! Need sunscreen, even if your working inside. be prepared to get a goood tan. every now and than you get a rude customer but that will happen anywhere. some employees are immature but this is really a teen type of entry job.

    Advice to Management

    have nothing bad to say about management, everyone over head of me was great

    Pros

    co-workers easy to work with, good first job for a teen, learned a lot of stuff that can be applied in other jobs.

    Cons

    low pay but it was my first job, shack where i worked had no a/c so it was very hot especially during the summer months, not very much hours but i was also part time.

    Advice to Management

    management was good, they promote from within so managers know the way things go, keep up the good work and friendships

    Pros

    Summer job for teens. Free entry to all parks and buddy pass

    Cons

    Because it's ran entirely by teenagers it is extremely unprofessional and most employees are rude to guests. Hours are entirely too long for the minimum wage they pay.16+ hours sometimes


  8. Great treatment of employees but not a lot of room for growth

    Pros

    Employees are truly valued. Bonuses are great.Most people love their jobs. Lots of flexibility, and a true "we're a team" mentality.

    Cons

    People work here for so many years that there's no room for advancement, because few people ever leave. This can lead to job boredom, but people are so comfortable so they just stay anyways.

    Advice to Management

    Create growth opportunities or new projects for high performing individuals.

    Pros

    The benefits are good if you're into theme parks- admission, comp tickets, discounts galore, employee ride nights, etc.

    Interesting work environment if you like people and spending time outside.

    Cons

    The hourly wages are horrendous. Entry levels make minimum wage, and lower levels of management make only a hair more. Full-time jobs are considered dead-end.

    Some departments have poor training programs.

    Advice to Management

    Put a little more substance into your department training programs and pay your management more. Recent changes to the park's offerings and policies have been impressive, however.
