    I have been working at Cedar Fair

    Pros

    The pros are lots of hours, free admission to Cedar Fair parks on your days off, and nice coworkers. Also, my supervisor was understanding of my social anxiety and not as hard on me as he could have been about my job.

    Cons

    The cons are angry guests which if you are sensitive to that sort of thing can be very stressful. Also, being in the heat all the time.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Cedar Fair in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process is a rather long one. There is quite a bit of paper work and they had very slow response time with my hiring. Interview is dependent on the part of the park you are going into. For food and beverage I was hired on the spot of interview.
