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

Pros

- Get in for free! With a buddy pass!
- Employee discounts
- Safety-ride the rides before the park opens
- Exit clearances
- Meeting different people from different walks of life.

Cons

- 10 minute ONLY breaks
- Some power-hungry leads
- Favoritism! To get promoted to be a lead, you must be a kiss-ass to part-time supervisors. To get promoted to be a foreman and supervisor, you must be a kiss-ass to full-time supervisors.
- Day-offs must be requested 3 months in advance...you also need to annoy your supervisors about it so they can finally get you off from your schedule.
- Cleaning vomit (Disneyland will have to call custodian for this!)
- Changing trash cans in the ride premises
- Uniform is aweful
- Drinking water is tainted and very dirty
- .25 raise after a year
- You won't get paid extra if you work on holidays...and even on grad nites. The only way you get extra money is if you go over your 10th hour, I believe.
- Cheap facilities. Very embarrassing

    Excellent company values on paper, but lack drastically as they are never enforced.

    Pros

    Mass-Management
    Great opportunity to develop interpersonal relationship skills
    Diverse work environment
    Many opportunities for promotion
    Several employee events
    Fun and carefree employees

    Cons

    Oblivious favortism
    Incredibly long work hours.

    With this company, you either work 11-12 hour shifts, or you work 4 hour shifts. There is no middle ground, and your supervisor will decide how often they want you around. This is not company policy, but a bad management tactic used in several departments throughout the park.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be more fair to your team members regarding the opportunity to LISTEN to your team members, as well as making them feel like they are cared about employees rather than a body in the park. On another hand, several of your employees ARE just bodies in the park and are not helpful whatsoever, (even to OTHER team members).

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
