    Pros

    Fun company with good people who really care. It becomes your life and the people become your family.

    Cons

    While the park is open you could work 10-12 hours a day (or more), no less than 6 days a week depending on your position. I didn't feel that I was compensated accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overwork your full-time staff and give them the people and resources they need.

    It was a great place to work. Friendly environment. Air conditioned when you wern't doing rounds through the park.

    Cons

    Doing rounds through the park carrying bags is hard work when it's hot out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Interacting with guests, making guests happy to see a clean park, independence and freedom, being able to walk around and not be confined to a tiny area, good pay, very good overtime pay too. This company really cares about the employees and makes it a good experience. Also, your coworkers make it more enjoyable to come to work.

    Cons

    took forever to get the job, being in the extremely hot weather, leads and supervisors were very demanding and hardly did anything themselves, the uniforms, being tired and sore after almost every shift, and the break rooms were horrible!

    Advice to Management

    I suggest that you lead by example. Employees need to be shown how to do everything properly and if you just assume they know how to do stuff, you'll end up with a really confused employee. Also, employees need to be shown how to be a fantastic worker. If you guys just sit there and demand, but not actually work hard alongside us, than the other employees are going to think it's ok to be lazy too.

    Pros

    They give you classes! Teach you about what job position you'd be having to work. But, they should offer more classes! For people who just wants to make sure that when they go out there, they know what they are doing. They were easy though! I mean, they don't even try to make it hard for you or anything. no challenges at all for that. Everyone is friendly, employee wise so far!

    Cons

    They don't really give you a map of the park and show you where you need to go when you are working for Food Services. I think they should make an employee map or something of the other so, that our first day won't be our first day on hell on earth. I have heard stories of Six Flags Employee's being treated like dirt when it came to the Guest wanting something. I really hope that doesn't happen to me. If so, I am quiting the first someone treats me lower like they are better or something.

    Advice to Management

    Employee maps, tell guest to respect the employees, more classes for better first time/job experience, schedule more days for employees to work or there won't be any employees working one day (especially the new ones they aren't going to be asking anyone to be giving them any more days for work than they barely have.) , and weekly/monthly paid classes (to make sure employees are having a good experience and that they aren't still lost.).

    Pros

    Having fun is considered a job requirement! Solid long-term benefits for full-time employees - bonuses, stock options, health insurance, 401k. Great infrastructure for moving up and around throughout the entire company.

    Cons

    Not many offered full-time, and then the hours can be brutal. Operationally dependent on very large quantities of low-wage workers, which are in short supply.

    Advice to Management

    Start automating tedious jobs and bump pay scale for supervisory and skilled.
