I worked at Six Flags part-time for more than a year

Pros

You get to work with other people your age and get great benefits such as the season pass and "buddy passes" or free tickets to give you friends. Once you do a summer it is fairly easy to return in subsequent summers. If you can prove that you take the job seriously It is a guaranteed paycheck with opportunities for small raises based on seniority. Scholarships and other bonuses targeted towards their young employees are also good if you pursue them.

Cons

HR and management are very demanding and impersonal. They have a very strict image they are trying to communicate for the park and if you do not support it you will be sent home or dismissed. The scheduling system is also very unforgiving and difficult to navigate. All this is really just necessary overcompensation to keep their employees under control because seasonal staff are primarily high school kids.

    Interesting summer of 2013, but I doubt I would be working here again

    I worked at Six Flags part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours and the ability to make friends. There is a 401k for those over 21.

    Cons

    Many nasty and disgusting guests. Too many 14 year olds operating rides they really shouldn't be. Not enough pay for the amount of work you're expected to do and supervisors/leads and even the full time staff play favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop hiring so many young kids!

    Pros

    Place to move up (to a point anyway.)

    Fun if you connect with your co-workers.

    Rewards for doing well.

    Free admission into park.

    Cons

    High expectations with low pay.

    Rude customers you need to get after if they're smoking.

    No overtime pay, but they give you long hours.
