I worked at Six Flags part-time for 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!

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
