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 ManagementAdvice

Pay increases for performance to keep good employees

    Got a theme park guest service mentality and dedication? You'll be okay.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Free access to the park any day of the week.
    Free tickets for friends.
    Lots of people work there, easy to get to know people and make new friends
    Good first job.

    Cons

    No respect given to new hires.
    Pay wasn't very well.
    Extremely hot days in SoCal heat where half the park is passing out.
    Most stressful job I've had, and also the lowest paying.
    Will fire you for being late.
    Employees are mean and try to come off professional but they're not. They work there for a reason.
    Not very flexible with schedules, will fire you for missing a day that they put you to work even if you were accidentally placed on the shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more humble, not so mean.
