    Pros

    I met really nice people, very good first job. For a 15/16 year old. Wouldn't recommend for anyone older. I was 17 when I worked there.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, TERRIBLE. you sit in the hot sun all day sometimes with no shade. winter months sucked even more because nobody was there and it was freezing.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better for the work they do. 7.25 does not cut it. Shout out to pahtik though. He was my favorite supervisor.


  2. Ok place, wouldn't do it for long, gets old quick.

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunities to meet famous people when working concerts or other large events.

    Cons

    POOR management thats all I'm going to say, because I don't feel like sitting here writing a page worth of complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so political. If you are on a lower chain of command it's like you don't exist.

    Pros

    Community conscience. Tried to give employees fair benefits. Wanted to strive to be the best and would spend resources if needed.

    Cons

    Could be a boys club at times and conservative. Long hours on the hospitality end.

    Pros

    The Lodge was a good work environment, I had approachable managers, very low stress at work, and the pay was fair for the work

    Cons

    Organization and restocking my area could have been smoother. The distance between my station and the managers' office made it difficult to get help during busier times

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    They are very forgiving and you learn a lot and have fun. i would recommend this job to almost anyone, and I am fairly certain they would enjoy it.

    Cons

    I worked in founders circle and the only bad thing I can say about it is that I had to deal with stupid parents... You should not be getting on a ride that looks like it was made for a 4 year old.

    Advice to Management

    none
