    Pros

    Great environment to learn and excel in the business
    Professional environment
    Job and Personal Growth, excellent training programs
    Vacation, Holidays & Time off during offseason, bonus potential for high achievers

    Cons

    Not many. If you apply yourself, get along with others and honestly work to improve yourself and the company performance, there is no limit what you can do at Six Flags Theme Parks. Look for the good in others and it comes back to you ten fold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Worked for the company for 17 years at various Six Flags parks and departments within the parks. Top notch corporate team who really cares about employees, treats them like family.

    Current Employee - Full-Time Leadership in Agawam, MA

    Pros

    Leadership roles are something different every day. Relatively high authority (and accountability) at even modest leadership levels. Growth opportunities exist if you are willing to relocate. A fun, vibrant and positive industry. Company in great position financially and executive leadership following 2010 changes!

    Cons

    The industry is not for everyone. If you are expecting routines, or highly structured and regimented business models, look elsewhere. Many special situations to address and often learn as-you-go in some areas. Work schedules can be flexible, but also can be long during peak operations.

    Current Employee - Cashier At Character Cafe in Saint Louis, MO

    Pros

    you can get a lot of experience working with people and honing your people skills almost to perfection. my pay is good and i'm just a host. you start from the bottom and have to work your way up to lead, supervisor, full-time, and then maybe one day to park manager. but like i said they start you off at the bottom. if you want a better position, you gotta work for it. i love six flags for teaching me this. you also make a lot of new friends working at six flags. i know almost everyone that works there because i'm just that type of outgoing guy who take time to learn about everyone.

    Cons

    there is not actually anything bad about working at six flags. people complain on here about leaving late. everyone knows about this before you even get hired!!!! they tell you at the interview. i don't mind cleaning after hours because its easy money and it helps in the long run when trying to get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you do best and dont change anything. i think you guys are doing great this year. keep up the good work
