I have been working at Six Flags part-time for more than 10 years

Pros

great summer job so work does not interfere with school
great place to work while your attending college, season starts and ends at the perfect times for major reports/projects for class
great place to work if you are retired and do not need a large source of income, limited hours can be better for those who do not need a great deal of money and are just working to get out of the house
you get to meet lots of new people
discounted or free tickets based on years of service
rides/games/attractions parties

Cons

hours are not always guaranteed
pay is not great
working conditions can be strenuous on those who cant handle long hours or constant standing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen to the survey that you force the team members to take. it tells you exactly how they feel and what they want.

    I have been working at Six Flags part-time for more than a 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.

    I have been working at Six Flags part-time for more than a year

    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).
