    I have been working at Six Flags

    Pros

    Benefits (your ID works as a season pass, free buddy pass after a certain amount of hours worked, etc.)
    Depending on your department and how involved you are, you start to feel like a family with your co-workers
    Opportunties for advancement
    Perfect job for a high school or college student due to the flexible hours

    Cons

    Difficult working environment (HEAT)
    Some members of leadership should not be hired to be in charge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to work on hiring the best people for supervisor positions. Some people come in and should very obviously have never been promoted.

    I worked at Six Flags

    Pros

    The company is very on top of things and tells you what needs to be done. Training is well suited for new employees. I would work here again.

    Cons

    Sometimes the outdoor working conditions are abysmal; i.e. no a/c and it's 105 degrees outside. You also have to deal with a great number of angry customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps better a/c?
