I have been working at Darien Lake part-time for more than a year

Pros

frequent paid breaks, flexible schedule, work id = season pass, admission ticket with weekly paycheck/stub

Cons

low pay, far from major towns and cities,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'm kind of a slave to debt, rent and car insurance and I'm far from alone in this. Maybe you could argue that's not Darien Lake's problem but it's kind of a four way balancing act when you include a job. If any one of these things were to go wrong so does everything else. Higher pay is necessary to maintain a stable workforce. This park is too big to rely on local kids who don't have such problems. There's not enough of them.

    I have been working at Darien Lake

    Pros

    Its a good job for college students and they allow you to gain knowledges and skills necessary for future careers.

    Cons

    The pay is mainly minimum wage. Most positions are seasonal. The season lasts from May until October which does not allow for year round employment.
