    I worked at Lake Compounce full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed interacting with the guests and other employees. Fun team member parties

    Cons

    The heat in the summer is a lot if you don't work in ac or right next to a fan. Sometimes rude guests.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good work

    I worked at Lake Compounce full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, good supervisors, decent summer job if you are looking for a little money.

    Cons

    Managers don't care about employees, some days they will have you stay late with only one 45 minute break, other days they will send you home after 2 hours. A lot of days we have been understaffed and I didn't get my break until the end of a 8 to 10 hour shift. When you work there, your life is dedicated to this place. It's hot, if you work in foods you can get disgustingly dirty cleaning. Half the time the air conditioning didn't work in my stand and they took 2 months to fix it. You get paid minimum wage no matter how long you've been a team member for. There's not a lot of room for growth. They definitely play favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites. Give the appropriate amount of breaks depending on how long people are actually working for. Stop taking advantage of your workers.

    be prepared to work, be prepared to be confused, little appreciation for human capital

    I have been working at Lake Compounce full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    a thriving property. some flexibility with schedule. decent benefits.

    Cons

    disorganized at corporate level. decentralized management at park level. company has no regard for their staff. seems to be lack of a long term plan and financial plan from my level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    employee depth and experience matters. everybody at the park level fills multiple hats and when someone leaves it hurts the park pretty bad.

    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 (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.

    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.
