    Pros

    Everyone that was around you that you worked with were great and the customer service experience you gain is wonderful.

    Cons

    Being outside all day in the heat was horrible and they say they are flexible with schedule, but in the end they weren't very flexible at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update rides more frequently to get more customers in the park.
