    I have been working at Schlitterbahn

    Pros

    *Meeting people from all over the globe.
    *Working at a place that almost everyone is having fun.
    *its a seasonal job, so you can work as many hours as you want.

    Cons

    *Dealing with very young Coworkers, it's like dealing with a day care at times.
    *its a seasonal job there is no overtime.
    *the starting rate for line staff is only minimum wage, so they must bring in international workers to have enough staff during the summer season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the minimum wage for line staff workers, and offer full time job positions for employees who actually would want benefits.

    I worked at Schlitterbahn (less than a year)

    Pros

    I had a wicked farmer's tan by the end of the Summer. My manager was cute.

    Cons

    Employees are mostly 16-17 years old. Not an ideal workplace for college students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. While I was working there, I thought the wages were a little too low. Even so, altogether it's a well-run, established company. No doubts about its longevity.

    I worked at Schlitterbahn part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    at the time i was working there we got all the hours we wanted flexible scheduling for students and alot of work opportunity i was a lifeguard and got alot of training that has helped me now as a commissioned security officer

    Cons

    the owners have a mixed reputation and took them long enough to upgrade rides and make them more fun

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    dont be so strict on screening candidates who are trying to get work experience they cant get it if you dont give them a chance
