    Pros

    Paid weekly. Great, friendly coworkers! Really nice managers. Fast paced work so hours go by very fast.

    Cons

    Nothing. This is an amazing job! Honestly, the one flaw is that it's hot but that isn't the company's fault.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at Six Flags full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fun, Good confidence booster job,

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low, supervisors are uneducated, supervisors favor certain employees more than others. Grueling sets if you're in costume, especially in the summer. Supervisors in my experience, all showed narcissistic traits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A supervisor once said "You're supposed to be out there for 3 hours, that's what you do, entertain". So basically he wants to violate our rights as workers.

    Pros

    Good summer job.
    Seems to be everyone's first job in my town
    They tend to hire everyone that applies, or at least from what friends have told me

    Cons

    Bad hours, woman told me she only gets 12 a week while requesting more
    Can get very, very hot during the summer/having to deal with cranky guests because of the heat (for people who work games and rides)

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

    Pros

    free admission, tickets, and free soda in the eating area.
    also they're pretty flexible with your schedule (so if you have a life tell them about it so they wont mess your social life up)

    Cons

    you will legitimately give up your civilian life during your shifts working like a slave in hard to believe climates whether it's rain or the burning hot sun for minimum wage. hospitality service is given by you, the host while the leads-supervisors give you the task that needs to be done.
    Since it's more a younger atmosphere you will have crew members who gossip as if it's a high school surrounding and people are intimidating. The only people respected the presidents of the park.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like guest, with respect because they're the ones who give you the title you have.
