I have been working at Herschend Entertainment as a contractor (more than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits are good, free entry to many parks in the nation. They offer health and dental, and typically will rehire you if you do your job adequately.

Cons

Unemployed two months of the year, still high prices for employees to attain health benefits or to eat food on park.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Higher profit sharing, please. This economy isn't well enough for you to spend $10 mil on a new ride and give employees a less than 2% raise.

    I worked at Herschend Entertainment

    Pros

    Gave off whenever I requested.
    Sometimes provided food/snacks on-site.
    You can work a 40+ hour work week in as little as 3-4 days.

    Cons

    In training, it was said that employees always had the power to "make it right" with the customers, yet scolds employees who follow this practice.
    You can work a 40+ hour work week in as little as 3-4 days.
    Terrible upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You obviously flourish in markets where there is very little competition for tourists to experience your services (Philadelphia, Branson, Seattle, Stone Mountain, Baltimore, etc etc etc). Why not show some effort to truly make your experience enjoyable, rather than 'phoning' it in all the time?

    Pros

    Great Support from a excellent organization. Everyone from top to bottom is a class act. Fun enviorment to grow in.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunities to move up organization chart unless potentially willing to relocate to another location depending on position availability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the wonderful work. You are class acts and don't give up the fight to continue in Philadelphia. Good Luck!
