I worked at Six Flags full-time for less than a year

Pros

sun, friedly coworkers - some of them

Cons

salary, I had to pay for the training program, I had to pay for my uniform

Advice to ManagementAdvice

to share the rules that Six Flags has - for students from other countries as well because most of us(Romanian students) didn't know that we had ti pay for our uniform and training

    I worked at Six Flags part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Gave employees perks such as a free night or so and if you worked there long enough then you would qualify to get a free season pass.

    Cons

    So many employees working and you get switched around so much that it's hard to create connections with people, moving up is okay but it really seems to be a system where you only move up if you know somebody. I only worked 3 or 4 days random days a month with minimum wage pay so its not very good on consistency.
