    Pros

    Friendly environment, enjoyable if you are used to being around large crowds.

    Cons

    Minimal hours for part time. During the fall season, I was only brought in for about 8-12 hours a week.

    Pros

    The park I worked for was overall great. The guest that visited weren't always great and nice but the work experience made up for that. Fun place to work!

    Cons

    The Texas heat would be a bummer!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job! I loved my managers. They were very kind and accommodating.

    Pros

    You get free tickets, and the people you work with are auper friendly nobody has a frown on their face and it's a great atmosphere so much better than sitting at a desk or in a mall store.

    Cons

    Just that I wish we got paid a little bit more and its so hard to contact HR.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great even management is very friendly. It's extremely easy to make friends working.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible along with hours being cut. As well as being assigned odd tasks otherwise it's alright. Some people work at to slow of a pace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep interacting with team members. But work at a faster pace or delegate some responsibility and make a decision and stick with it.

    Pros

    Fun place to work, unlimited access to roller coasters was an awesome perk. Great people to work with too.

    Cons

    The pay was not too great. They also could provide better benefits. But with that many part time employees, I can understand it.

    Pros

    You have a chance to learn a lot from the various tasks you are given, You'll meet lots of interesting people and make some great friends, Pretty decent hours during Fright Fest and Holiday in The Park set-up and tear down, Employee parties, Free tickets to park as well as free admission to any other Six Flags

    Cons

    No longer offer health insurance to seasonal employees (unless you're a supervisor), The pay is a little low but that's standard in this industry, The hours drop quite a bit during the off season, No overtime unless approved by management which could lead to some problems when working late at night and no managers are around.

    Advice to Management

    The zero tolerance policy on cell phones isn't being used properly. I have good, long term employees fired for checking the time while backstage and I have also seen seasonal supervisors playing games on their phone while at a ride with zero repercussion.

    Pros

    great benefits! free entry plus a friend, discounts in retail and discounts at certain food places around the park, plus you get free entry to any six flags owned place, including hurricane harbor! So many hours, you can make a huge pay check if you just keep staying late(they'll probably love it)

    Cons

    its hot hot hot! Need sunscreen, even if your working inside. be prepared to get a goood tan. every now and than you get a rude customer but that will happen anywhere. some employees are immature but this is really a teen type of entry job.

    Advice to Management

    have nothing bad to say about management, everyone over head of me was great

    Cons

    hours can be long and most of the time on Saturday you work till 12 midnight Sundays you get out at 10 so do that for 3 days it can get very tiredso you basically work Friday Saturday and Sunday and one Monday and that usually is Columbus Day next 10 a.m. to 7 and most the time it rains if you are a street the actor

    Advice to Management

    management are good people and they will work with you if you are nice to them they'll be even nicer to you
