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

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Six Flags part-time (more than an 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!
