    I have been working at Six Flags full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Having fun is considered a job requirement! Solid long-term benefits for full-time employees - bonuses, stock options, health insurance, 401k. Great infrastructure for moving up and around throughout the entire company.

    Cons

    Not many offered full-time, and then the hours can be brutal. Operationally dependent on very large quantities of low-wage workers, which are in short supply.

    Advice to Management

    Start automating tedious jobs and bump pay scale for supervisory and skilled.

    Pros

    Good for gaining job experience. They host a lot of fun activities and programs for employees. These things definitely appeal to young people and there are a lot of friendships to be made.

    Cons

    It's seasonal so its difficult to be fully invested and work you're way up. A lot of turnover occurs and the policies are very strict. If you need a day off it's difficult to find coverage. Also if you are older, it may be unappealing to work with so many kids. Also if it's a rainy day, depending on your job, you may get sent home or called out of work. The guests can also be very difficult and weary of park policies and in turn they take it out on employees.s

    Advice to Management

    Keep adding incentive for workers to stay on and perform well. Too much turnover puts a lot of pressure on employees during busy days. Also look for ways to keep guests in good spirits as they constantly voice displeasure to employees.

    I worked at Six Flags part-time

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing you get into the park free with a guest and get discounts on games and food.

    Cons

    The guests are horrible and most of the time are rood, they always expect to break the rules.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the customers to be more nice to employees. I mean we're human too. It's not fun to work at a place where you get harassed everday.

    I have been working at Six Flags part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Free admission to the park for you and a friend -40% off all food and drinks -Great people, everyone is very friendly and everyone is very close -Many special employee events (Games tournaments, Hurricane Harbor night, movie nights, etc) -Practice with public speaking and practice with building solid customer service skills

    Cons

    -Minimum wage -Long hours -HOT! or rainy (but they provide water and ponchos) -Some of my leads are the same age as me, which makes it difficult to take them seriously as my boss (I'm 17)

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing awesome, the only thing I would say is make the process to become a lead a little more difficult to prevent young teenage boys from being in charge of others.

    I have been working at Six Flags (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get a lot of hours, meet new people who soon will become close friends, Complimentary tickets every month, discounts on food and retail.

    Cons

    Don't get paid enough to deal with the things you will have to deal with, long hours, the heat can take toll on your work.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the workers to choose their own break time, get paid more, don't be so uptight with dress code

    Working with fun people, it's a very easy part time summer job. Six Flags pays for your lifeguard training which is a huge plus.

    Cons

    Not the best pay, the company is a little uptight about certain policies, but so is every corporate company.

    I have been working at Six Flags part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits (bring a friend for free, employee night, 35% off) people (some you know, some are new), employee discount(online & in-park).

    Cons

    Management(very unprofessional, usually can never be found), Favoritism (supervisors usually are best friends with managers), Overwhelming (too much for what you're paid), Weather (can be unexpected and make you leave early)

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more lowkey that you're all having relations. Hire different supervisors and leads. Do not switch locations as often.
