    Pros

    - Meet great people
    - Provides good cash handling and customer service experience
    - Discounts on most attractions at the park

    Cons

    - Tends to overhire, which cuts hours
    - A lot of minors are employed, which sometimes leads to typical high school drama.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more lenient with reapplies.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    This is as close as it gets to employers knocking on your door. If a job ad is being distributed by e-mail, the employer is reaching out. These could be sent to, and come to you through, Career Services, your academic department, advisors, clubs, you name it.

    Cons

    Not for the shy and retiring (or the mistakenly confident). You need to make a good impression in person and look prepared. Students who go to fairs without doing research in advance sometimes have a not-so-great experience. You're not necessarily learning about every opportunity in each organization — you are learning where the major hiring needs are. There are many fairs, but each one, with its own niche, is typically a once- or twice-per-year event — so don't miss the one(s) you need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand the parking lot and take health of employees seriously.
