I have been working at Six Flags part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

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

Cons

The 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 ManagementAdvice

Work on scheduling a bit. Also train the ride ops on more than just one ride.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Depending on what department you work in depends on the working conditions
    Great co-workers
    Hosts many events for the employees such as cookouts, days where the park is only open to employees etc. They really show that they care about the employees who work there.

    Cons

    Some of the higher level management are young people not exactly suited for or are mature enough to be in those positions. Lack of communication between upper level and general employees. Promotion up the ladder not necessarily based on ability or work ethic, more based on favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more selective when deciding who to promote and where to place them. Age should not necessarily be a factor in a management position but the maturity to be able to handle it and handle it well should. Management should constantly be walking around checking on their sections, not hiding out in their offices.
