    Pros

    - Management is great, and will always be there if you need them
    - Free entry to the park and a 15% discount
    - Very flexible scheduling

    Cons

    - A bit of favoritism with the managers depending on the department
    - Very strict dress code (won't be able to clock in for the littlest things)
    - Can get very stressful with the amount of guests that constantly approach you

    Advice to Management

    Drop the red dot system. I got a fair number of red dots, but it easily gets too competitive between departments and employees. The employees who didn't get red dots often felt inferior as an employee.

  2. Coworkers are great, hours can fluctuate, very flexible.

    Pros

    -Coworkers were amazing, they were the only reason I liked to come to work.
    -Work was pretty easy as a security officer, but there's always good times and bad times.
    -during the summer season and Halloween you will get ridiculous hours, but after that no so much.

    Cons

    -if you don't like working in the heat, don't apply during the summer.
    -if you don't like walking up and down hills all day, don't apply to security.
    -quests can be stupid sometimes.
    -few hours during offseason.

    Advice to Management

    no advice, they were actually friendly and accommodating.
