    Not something to go back to.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros-work at a leasee (you get treated way better and don't have cedar point down your back the whole time).
    -free pass to get in :). And employee cafeteria with really cheap food.
    -managers at leasees are really understanding and knowledgable. Worked well with my schedule.
    -Halloweekends :).

    Cons-it's cedar point... They'll fire you for any reason.
    -could give us a/c since it's really hot.
    -customer service jobs are difficult... People yelled at me for no reason.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeasee management is really good :). All I have to say is that cedar point management could probably work on treating their employees better.

    Not a good place to work. Amazing place to visit.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Sandusky, OH

    ProsI loved that I could get into the park for free on my days off and I liked that they gave me free tickets after I worked there for so long. I also liked that they offered housing, but the housing was awful.

    ConsMy worst experience was the living arrangements. Wifi is awful and it felt like I was living in a cheap dorm. They fit up to 4 people into a room for 2. I also worked about 60 hours a week in the most boring convenience store in the park (in an employee dorm).

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpgrade living arrangements, make the check-in easier for move in since it was an all day affair to finally get through the line.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Mixed of mature and immature managers / team leaders

    Game Operator (Former Employee)
    Muskegon, MI

    ProsFun Environment
    Easy work
    Free access on your days off

    Cons16 year old managers who are under qualified
    minimum wage
    lots of time off the clock (come in at 8, but you cant punch in or work until 10)
    Cant leave games / carts unattended - however once in a while you will be forgotten

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer some better benefits to attract some well qualified managers to work here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Awesome Experience!!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorking at Cedar Point gives you an opportunity to meet people from all over the world! Most position pay minimum wage, but most departments offer a lot of hours. Lots of perks are offered such as employee ride nights, free park, water park and beach access, employee movie/fry nights and many others!

    ConsSome positions are outside, so working in the elements isn't always the greatest. The housing offered to employees isn't the greatest. LOTS of minors are employed here as well. A lot of the time this will be their first job

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