I have been working at Six Flags part-time for more than a year

Pros

Great people, Good hours in peek season, meet a lot of people, free soda for food service, relatively easy promotion

Cons

no hours in off season, they generally do not like to have you work over 6 hours unless they have a big event happening- Food service magic mountain, WAY understaffed

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have some empathy, It always seemed like you expected people to know exactly what to do with out telling them anything, IE if it is a slow day over all but my building was busy you would still expect me to send people home? or to another location. it was understaffed a lot!

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

    Pros

    You get paid weekly and the amount you can earn doing the summer is great

    Cons

    The uniforms are atrocious. The bright green shirt is see-through so you have to wear a white undershirt. Even during those Texas summers of 100+
    Also you have to pay for everything you have to wear beside socks and shoes. So forget about that first paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get uniforms that don't require something to wear underneath.

    Raise your pay! We're saving lives here! Not flipping burgers at McDondalds! Hire more responsible workers, and older ones! A bunch of kids are working for you. Do you really think their doing that great of a job!?
