    I worked at Lake Compounce part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You can switch shifts without involving a manager.

    Cons

    There was low pay, and would be asked to leave on low attendance days.

    I worked at Lake Compounce part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, great supervisory teams. Supervisors can get Overtime in some departments. The General manager walks around with a broom and cleans up garbage all day. So its cool that hes not a suit and tie in an office, but I mean the garbage thing is just over board. also everyone sleeps with everyone. including management.

    Cons

    Pay, hours, upper management could care less about you....The lifeguards would come in and just be sent home if it wasn't busy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    actually pay managers and supervisors a worthy salary instead of some chump change.

    I worked at Lake Compounce as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly staff, moderate working conditions, variety of positions- keeps employees from getting bored of mundane tasks, always something different going on from shows to costume characters to the variety of customers

    Cons

    pay is only minimum, even for returning workers or those with experience or degrees, senior workers treated differently than newer workers, benefits are only park perks not actual benefits like health, can only pick one job instead of rotating between a few per week or day in order to break up monotony.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to disabled workers needs- they can still do the job you want but need a little something like a chair to lean on. Also consider fixing cons.

    I worked at Lake Compounce part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The other employees are all really nice and willing to help and answer questions. All the team leaders and managers are really really nice, they've been where you are before so they can understand any problems you're having. The park parties were a lot of fun too and a great to bond with the other employees in your area!

    Cons

    You have to see how some of the food is prepared. Also some of the guests don't really understand what no means and can get really upset about no returns or how expensive things can be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some phones or a way for the food carts to communicate with their leaders so that when they need you they don't have to flag down someone with a walkie talkie.

    I worked at Lake Compounce part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Mostly easy to do work. Learn customer service and money handling if you're in foods and carts or games. Summer job.

    Cons

    Very demeaning management, tend to have less of an idea of what to do in each section than those working there every day. Always in fear of being reprimanded, even if not doing anything wrong. Hours have been cut back drastically in the past few years, even enforcing a 45 minute long break. People have been written up for taking 30 minute breaks or arriving a few minutes early to work. Upward movement is not rewarding at all, just take even more work and more flak from the management for overtime you'll be yelled at for and .25 raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None has worked thus far, so I don't know what else to say.
