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

    Pros

    Caters to persons with a strong need for flexible schedule regardless the reason. School, second job, family, children etc..

    Cons

    Seasonal. Hours will flourish through spring and summer but wain through fall and winter. Not a job for someone needing steady income or who is supporting themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should work harder on consistency. A guest can ask 20 different employees the exact same question yet get 20 different answers and a high possibility that not even one of those answers would be correct.

    I worked at Six Flags part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I would get discounted lunch free tickets good pay and met new people.

    Cons

    young managers and bossy security guards. sometimes people would be rude and have a problem with simple instructions. you had little breaks too and in summer had to stay in the heat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get older experienced managers and give people who work their butts off more breaks and help is sometimes with crazy people.
