Former Employee - Cash Control Agent in San Antonio, TX

I worked at Six Flags part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Unlimited free visits and parking, 30% off park merchandise. Work was pretty fun if you had a good group of friends to hang out with, but if you don't like your co-workers it probably won't be a good job. Average Starting pay, $7.50 I believe.

Cons

Some co-workers and managers are very immature, but you should expect that at a business that hires mainly minors. I worked late hours at my position, but not all will have this experience. Also, most employees are "seasonal", and you will be "let go" just after new years. You have to go through the hiring and orientation process all over again each february to start work in March for spring break. Because you're seasonal, there is no overtime or earned vacation time/sick days. Also, no benefits unless you're a full-time manager.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your employees more, and hire more Loss Prevention employees!

    Current Employee - Seasonal Entertainment Supervisor in Upper Marlboro, MD
    Current Employee - Seasonal Entertainment Supervisor in Upper Marlboro, MD

    I have been working at Six Flags full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    *Big company name
    *Lots of room to learn
    *Always get a chance to try something new
    *Company parties and games
    *Options for 401K and health insurance from paycheck

    The great thing about working at Six Flags is that no day is the same. I'm a supervisor for Entertainment, so we always get cool opportunities to start new shows twice a season (spring to summer, summer to Fright Fest), help with concerts, work with the media, and think outside the box on a daily basis. In my first season, I did the following:

    1) Produce, direct, and choreograph shows and holiday performances
    2) Run auditions and cast performers
    3) Manage talent for media events
    4) Organize/clean Entertainment areas
    5) Mixing of music and performance tracks
    6) Sewing up holes and tears in costumes
    7) Laundry
    8) Scheduling employees

    And much more!

    Our department expects us to pretty much do anything that needs to be done. During the first few weekdays of the park being open, I even helped operate some rides as many of our Rides employees are high-school students and were still in school when we had events during the day. It's my understanding that this isn't something that's practiced at just our park, but at all of the Six Flags parks. Some people may see this as a negative thing, but I think it's great because it makes the job interesting and adds a lot of skills to my resume!

    Cons

    Lower pay than some other theme parks
    Some areas of the park need to be updated

    As long as you approach this job with a willingness to learn and a positive and bright attitude around guests, you can move up in the ranks and really grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A fresh coat of paint can go a long way!
