    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

    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

    Great part time benefits package. Free park admission, flexible hours. This place is more for high school and early college students.

    Stop being so unprofessional, disorganized and uptight. Supervise your employees properly.

    Pros

    It is a fun place to work and you get to meet a lot of interesting people.

    Cons

    Very little room for moving up within the company. A lot of people get "stuck" where they are. Managers are not always truthful with their intentions of your employment. A lot of favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the experience of your employees before deciding on a promotion.

    I have been working at Six Flags full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hours are great, fellow team members are awesome, and the experience is fantastic. Any problems within departments and divisions is handled accordingly and promptly. It's a great place to meet new people and there are always events after work that strengthen the Aquatics department as a whole.

    Cons

    Guests can be extremely rude and mocking. If a team member becomes favorited by management in any way, shape, or form they are almost guaranteed a promotion regardless of how good they actually are at their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most senior management are great, with a few exceptions. Their values are misleading to most team members, and the way they handle situations can be very dissatisfying and take way longer than necessary.
