    I worked at Six Flags full-time (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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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