It can be fun, but loyalty is not a strong point

Cabana Attendant (Former Employee)
Athol, ID

I worked at Silverwood part-time for less than a year

ProsIt is a fun summer job that is usually not labor intensive.

ConsHours at the beginning of the season can be hard to come by and by the end of the season they are begging you to work everyday because everyone has quit.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to reformat your employee guest policy. During the beginning of the summer when everyone wants to go the employees do not have enough passes and by the end of the year you have a stock pile.

Long hours with slightly low pay; plenty of fun activities and perks.

Lifeguard (Current Employee)
Athol, ID

I have been working at Silverwood part-time for more than 3 years

Pros"Team" feel
Fun side activities
Small perks
Free park entrance/tickets
Plenty of peers, making it easy to find your group of friends

ConsLow pay (at or near minimum wage)
Long hours (10-15/day)
Feels like sometimes they're penny pinching (e.g. Employees pay for training books, uniforms, etc)

Advice to Senior ManagementSplit days into two shifts, but still allow people to work both shifts if they want.

Great for a Summer Job, but has its limits

Supervisor (Current Employee)
Athol, ID

I have been working at Silverwood full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSilverwood Theme Park has great staff, the management is professionally trained, and they provide numerous support. The guests are also a lot of fun, overall a great job thats experience that is priceless.

ConsSilverwood doesn't pay overtime, pay rate is very low, schedules lots of hours (thus you don't have a summer life), and virtually no benefits. Also, the park is falling apart behind the scenes, so the work environment isn't the greatest.

Advice to Senior ManagementPark needs to rebuild many of the buildings, make them more comfortable to work in, needs to pay overtime and include more benefits, especially to ones that return year after year. Park just needs to put a lot more money into employees.
