    Pros

    It is an energetic enviornment where you have to deal with a lot of people. Everyone I worked for seemed fair and I rotated around the area a good amount so it wasn't to tedious

    Cons

    It gets hot outside and you will be lucky to get an umbrella. The cooler is usually full but when its not its rough. Training could be more thorough

    I have been working at Six Flags part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers are pretty friendly. Get free admission into the park and a slight discount when you visit. Get a buddy in for free after you work x many hours.

    Cons

    People's lives are in your hands and you get paid minimum wage. If it was just making sure the seat belts are secured then I would understand the pay, but it's so much more than that. Most times you're doing double the work because they are almost always under staffed. If you're an adult you will be most likely ask to work doubles, which also suck. With all that said, don't go into this job thinking it's all fun and games it's hard and tiring work and can get really overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees (ride attendants) more than minimum wage, especially when your customers lives and the park's creditably is in their hands. And always make sure each ride has the correct number of attendants (one in each position) this way there is less room for errors and customers won't complain about wait times.

    Rude and uptight management. Fails to lookout for its employees. Health insurance for part time employees is expensive.
