I worked at California's Great America full-time for less than a year

Pros

-Even without previous work experience, Great America will give you a job opportunity.
-You get to meet a lot of different people
-You get free access to the park on your days off
-You can earn tickets for your friends and family depending on how many hours you work
-You get employee discounts

Cons

-Getting paid minimum wage (It's understandable though; since so many people are willing to work for Great America, from their stand-point, why would they play their employers more when people are willing to work for less?)
-The weather conditions can be harsh
-You sometimes have to deal with entitled customers
