    I have been working at Six Flags part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a seasonal summer job, I gained a lot of experience in customer service as a Guest Relations Host; experience that I know I will take with me in the future. I was also able to meet a lot of people, including some from upper management, which is always great for networking.

    Cons

    Low wages, no holiday pay, and a lack of communication from department to department. I have also noticed a lack of consistency from the Human Resources department in the way they enforce the rules amongst employees.

    I worked at Six Flags part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is an energetic enviornment where you have to deal with a lot of people. Everyone I worked for seemed fair and I rotated around the area a good amount so it wasn't to tedious

    Cons

    It gets hot outside and you will be lucky to get an umbrella. The cooler is usually full but when its not its rough. Training could be more thorough

    Pros

    Free park admission and HH admission

    Cons

    Literally everything. I called in sick a week ahead for a back MRI and talked to the Supervisor for my department. When I showed up - according to the schedule - the next day I was told I was under review for being insubordinate and missing an unexcused day of work. I never got a call back and was never scheduled again. I would never work there again

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise management to get off your high horse... grow up

    Pros

    The only benefits are the people you meet and the guaranteed hours during peak seasons.

    Cons

    The worst things about working there are that there is very very very little room to grow. The management is not open to new ideas whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your employees more and give a little more incentive to do jobs better. Look deeper into the site managers for the departments and remind them where they started instead of having them ruin their departments morale repeatedly throughout the season. Also, take a better look at where the GSA and GSS scores actually come from, because they don't come from anyone wearing a silver tag.
