I worked at Six Flags part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Meeting and making new friends. Thats all that i can think of

Cons

Too many too list. My department was a game of politics. When your with a company 5 years and see one .10 raise, have to work out in the weather not having the back of mangement. Not knowing how you did on a promotion test, having someone who has been with the company 3 months get promoted over people with years of expirence. Breaks are done very bad breaks should be done 1st come 1st serve, but not in this place a person comes in at 10 gets a break at 12 leaves at 4, another person comes in at 8 gets a break at 2 leaves at 4.

Get use to fights with supervsiors about your shift, after being here 5 years i am glad i left the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fix your department mangement, start over and do things fairly.

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

    Pros

    Kind people, fast-paced, enjoyable, unique

    Cons

    bad compensation, cheezy rewards, non-sincere compliments, poor training philosophy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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 an employee; know and practice and teach your supervisors the difference between favoritism and trust; cut down how long it takes to become a supervisor by having less steps; instead of waiting for discipline issues to arise, simulate a fake one so supervisors can finish their training; give rewards to employees that don't take all year to "earn."

    I worked at Six Flags part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Plenty of hours (almost too many)
    Chance to meet nice people from all over (because of the programs they have internationally)

    Cons

    Management lacked leadership skills
    Favoritism was abundant so even more incompetent people were in positions of leadership
    Sometimes the breaks would be too long (You were required to take an hour break when you had a four hour shift)
    Nasty/Rude managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate who you put in charge and take a closer look at how they treat team members
