    Pros

    If you show up early to the job fair they hold every year, you will most likely get hired on for the summer. There are numerous jobs to choose from and you have the potential for working many hours. A good opportunity to get resume experience when you are in high school.

    Cons

    Management is incompetent, as are most employees. Seasonal jobs seems to bring out the people who can't stay employed at a year-round job. The pay is the minimum and the days get very hot.

    I worked at Raging Waters full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Its nice to work outdoors and almost everything in the park is discounted for employees. If you enjoy spending time in the water then this might be the job for you. Be wary as doing this day in and day out can get rather monotonous. It was a decent first job though.

    Cons

    There is a lot of standing around and waiting for something to happen. You are supposed to be actively scanning the water you are assigned to but there is so little that happens and at the end of the day it feels so unrewarding. It was minimum pay for me to ensure people did not drown while people who work at Chipotle make more money wrapping burritos. I would have preferred a more active job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees might be a little more interested in their job if they were paid more, considering an entry price of $40 a person I don't see how this would be unreasonable.

    I have been working at Raging Waters full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Got a tan, learned CPR, told people what to do, fun coworkers

    Cons

    Hot sun...

    Sometimes after working a long long shift we had to do some surprise lifeguard training where we would stay an extra hour to either swim laps, jump in the pool to save dolls, or perform CPR. All good things but no one wants to work a full 8 hours in the sun then go swim 6 laps in the pool and perform CPR.

    The worst part for me though was when my wallet and iPhone got stolen. I told management and they barely sympathized with me even though it was stolen in an area where they frequently hung out. On my lunch I had to spend it calling my credit card company and phone provider on my friend's phone to stop the activity. With me being clearly upset by all of this I was still forced to go back out and lifeguard in tears. I was told that an investigation would lead on into what happened. The next day there was a large sign that said "employees cannot store their belongings here". I understood the sign and felt that it was there because of what happened to me. Later on in the day however my break was missed so I approached a lead lifeguard to tell him and as I went up to him he said with attitude "didn't you read the sign?" as he pointed to the sign that was made for storing our belongings. I looked at him confusingly and mentioned to him that I simply was asking if I could take my break. Clearly he turned red and said "oh sure no problem". Afterwords I found out that in the morning huddles that my experience with my phone and wallet being stolen were told to my coworkers as an irresponsible thing on my part. I was so embarrassed. Come to find out though a few days after this happened, a veteran lifeguard got her stuff stolen and she was treated much differently then I was. They put on an investigation to find the person and guess what? They did! This person admitted to stealing my stuff and hers as well. I was told all this information by a coworker, but I wasn't suppose to know because thy were going to approach me about it....They never did!!!! The girl was able to know the person and talk to the police about the situation. I was so disappointed and told upper management about this and was ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Favoritism is not okay in the professional field. This experience could've been avoided.

    Pros

    I would have to say that everyday working at Raging Waters provided something new and exciting. Never a dull moment working for this company.

    Cons

    The only real downside to working at Raging Waters would be the fact that it is seasonal and isn't operational throuout the entire year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I felt the management of the security department had its hands full with the loss of Jason Molihan and should have replaced him with someone that was more knowledgeable and had more of a security background.

    Pros

    I learned more administrative work. Actually, I learned that I don't like it. It's good to take up a job and learn something from it, good or bad.

    Cons

    Underpaid, everyone gossips. Also, my supervisor said I would work 20-30 hours. I ended up only working 6 or less. It wasn't her fault because they had to cut back on hours, but she should have been more up front.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on team building. You can tell management hates their job because of all the complaining they do. I felt like management needed a more cohesive vibe, but it's hard to do that when your employees are seasonal. Still, they need to work on team building.
