    A little young and political

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

    Pros

    It was a great way to make some money while I was in between jobs. They seem to accept everyone and it is also a good way to get experience.

    Cons

    As an older person going in to work there, it felt too much like a high school with many young immature workers (I was in food service). The politics of leads/managers/etc seemed unnecessary.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are great. You can get in free anytime with one friend on an off day, the experience you get especially for minors is very great. You learn how to work a cashier, cook and prepare food, and also how to work with co-workers and guests.

    Cons

    Most food restaurants are very uncomfortable to work in, especially the summer. It's way hotter in the building than outside. I feel as if the job should be paid at least 8.50 instead of the 8 dollars, especially all the intense walking you have to do around the park . They say they watch out for the minors very carefully, but I felt as if they didn't lookout for us at all. Myself and other minors felt dizzy a lot because of the hot conditions, some days were unbearable. Also, most co-workers were lazy and put the "dirty" work on the newer employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should put some kind of cooling device in the bulding, because eventually someone will collapse. They also need to supervise Macho Nacho because the newer employees work the hardest and listen to the other co-workers.
