Fun Summer Time Job With A Few Problems

Ride Operator (Current Employee)
Jackson, NJ

ProsFun with flexible hours. You learn some new skills ranging from how to operator the rides to socializing with the guests.

ConsThe pay rate is pretty low considering you have to work outside in the heat/humidity every day with little to no shade. Some areas do have shade but some places have none and breaks are done so strangely. You can be working 30mins and have your 45minute break; which means working the next 4-5 hours without a break. Also there is a major understaffed issue, don't be surprised if you end up working 4-5 double shifts in a week just to cover-up this issue. Plus no overtime pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on scheduling a bit. Also train the ride ops on more than just one ride.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good job, difficult to be compensated for honest work.

    Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Santa Clarita, CA

    I worked at Six Flags part-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Kind people, fast-paced, enjoyable, unique Cons: bad compensation, cheezy rewards, non-sincere compliments, poor training philosophy Advice to Senior Management: Supervisors should be getting paid more that those they supervise; give good compliments to employees that deserve it, not just to everyone because they are… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

    Flawed

    Retail (Former Employee)
    Upper Marlboro, MD

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


    Pros: Plenty of hours (almost too many) Chance to meet nice… Cons: Management lacked leadership skills Favoritism was abundant so even more incompetent people were in positions of leadership Sometimes the breaks… Advice to Senior Management: Evaluate who you put in charge and take a closer… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
