Pros

Good for experience and easy enough to get into low level leadership positions. Low level management is friendly enough most of the time. Great co-workers and free entry to park.

Cons

Higher management is disrespectful. HR is only interest in protecting Six Flags's interests. International employees are forced to live in cheap apartments and while promised amenities like internet and comfortable mattresses few rooms actually make true on these promises. International employees are actually generally disrespected by management. I knew a girl who was fired and sent back to Asia because she was dehydrated, no one was bringing her water, so she melted Dip n Dots and drank them. Long hours expected and no overtime. Double shifts often scheduled, even when they are not if you are a Lead or higher expect to stay well past your scheduled shift.

Advice to Management

Re-evaluate what employees do for your company. Treat them with respect. Treat international employees as adults (which they are, some with children).

    Pros

    I was able to get great training in retail and customer service. I was also able to get experience as a retail manager before I was 18. It was a busy environment, which taught me how to work with others to get things done quickly. You get into the park free and there are a lot of team member parties.

    Cons

    Management is young and can be petty and unprofessional. There is a lot of pressure if you are a young lead/supervisor. The pay is low for all that you do and you have to work long hours (if you are a lead).

    Advice to Management

    Don't talk down to those who are working under you and stay professional.

  2. Great Summer Pay, but terrible uniforms

    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 Management

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