    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    I had a lot of fun at this job. A great summer job.

    Cons

    Low pay considering all of my responsibilities. Managers were pretty dumb and disrespectful which led to me not wanting to work there anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your disgusting park

    Cons

    The kitchen is very small and both a la cart and banquets are run out of the same kitchen , they need to have a full service banquet kitchen , to cook at a high level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to have separate banquet kitchen , just for banquets

    Former Employee - Guest Services Representative in Vernon, NJ

    Pros

    Close to home, Free season pass

    Cons

    Everything Else, especially the supervisors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try hiring people who can actually do their job, rather than people who have worked there previously and are still almost entirely incompetent.

    Waterpark = High stress

    Former Employee - Lead in Vernon, NJ

    Pros

    It's a relatively young core of employees who manage the park. Sticking around here for a couple years and getting noticed can bring about leadership/management opportunities.

    You get to spend a lot of time outdoors.

    Occasionally you get to chase a bear out of the park after closing

    Cons

    You get noticed when you do a great job. That being said, promotions are based primarily on favorites. Good employees get promoted but many get overlooked for leadership opportunities if they aren't friends with the manager or supervisors.

    This is a high-stress environment. Young employees get some of their first job experience here so you never know what you'll get.

    Guests in the waterpark expect everything to be perfect and get irate when problems arise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being an expert in the waterpark industry does not necessarily mean you can be an effective manager. Managing is a different atmosphere and should be treated as such. Far too many positions within upper-management are handed to employees for having been with the park an extended period of time.

  7.  

    No communication, no respect

    Former Employee - Department Supervisor

    Pros

    Free Season Pass, local location.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, no real chance of advancement, lack of leadership, low employee morale and nothing to help alleviate that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your office and see what's going on around you. Too many management meetings where nothing gets done....ever.
