    I worked at Six Flags

    Pros

    The company is very on top of things and tells you what needs to be done. Training is well suited for new employees. I would work here again.

    Cons

    Sometimes the outdoor working conditions are abysmal; i.e. no a/c and it's 105 degrees outside. You also have to deal with a great number of angry customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps better a/c?

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

    Pros

    Free access to the park, and after working 48 hours you get a "buddy pass" allowing you to bring in one other friend for free.

    Cons

    Minimum wage pay for better pay work.
    Poor leadership.
    Don't really work with your schedule.
    Doesn't really provide you with much experience other employers will look for.
    Will most likely lose any paper work you give them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    These are things I've seen, not dealt with personally. When an employee says they're not coming in, three weeks in advanced, do not berate them for not coming in three weeks later. Do not ask employees to stay until close when you know they can't because you didn't rotate them well. When an employee does something that wasn't to your liking, be professional and correct them professionally. Do not screech at them and leave, expecting them to work more efficiently. People do not work more efficiently after having been screeched at, generally they work less efficiently. And they will hate you for it. And that weakens the team.
