Pros

Flexible work schedule and not much more.

Cons

Seasonal work, meager pay, infighting, strong nepotism. This company hesitates to fire anyone who isn't a seasonal employee. The divide between seasonal and full time is so great it affects the company creating an us vs. them attitude.

Advice to Management

If you want to acquire and retain quality employee's you need to pay for them. Your pay structure is horrid and your leadership weak and ineffective. Your company is full of people who never left so you promote them because of tenure.

    Paid only minimum wage (Ride operators get paid the least amount of money)
    job is seasonal - training begins in March and season ends in late October

    Keep up the good work. Just train your leads and supervisors to be more organized.
