Pros

Friendly people, you can learn a variety of jobs from retail, food, marketing, etc. The knowledge you gain about business in general will help you in any career move you make. Plenty of opportunities for cross training in different departments. Overall a great employer. They need to get updated on pay scale to keep the good employees. Also, great opportunities for transferring if you want to move to another state. They have many locations.

Cons

Pay is very low for the work you do. No or horrible benefits

Advice to Management

Pay increases for performance to keep good employees

    Pros

    Theme park environment is consistently exciting and rarely a dull moment--your shift goes quickly.
    Many theme park perks and employee-only events.
    Relatively fair treatment by management and fellow employees, and if you do what you are supposed to do nobody will give you any trouble.
    Because most people are part-time, relatively good about giving you requested days off.

    Cons

    Uneven distribution of "Red Dot" rewards amongst different departments.
    Too many younger employees with management power, who do not know how to properly handle themselves much less others.
    Personal lockers are not available in all locations.
    Filthy lunch/meal areas for certain quick service locations.

    Advice to Management

    Audit management behavior more often, instead of non-supervisory employees. Although it is unfair to assume they are not doing their job, the appearance comes across that they just sit behind the desk and joke around.


  2. Fun Working Environment with Fun People

    Pros

    Highschool/College age Co-workers, Theme Park Environment, Can Relax when Park is Slow and Talk with Coworkers, Learn how to Operate a Roller Coaster. Great for a Summer Job or Part Time College/Highschool Students. It's a Good First Job. Free Admission into Park with Employee ID on Days Off.

    Cons

    Unless it's summer, the park isn't open very much and you don't get many hours. Also, long hours for low pay (Usually Minimum Wage).
