    Friendly environment, enjoyable if you are used to being around large crowds.

    Minimal hours for part time. During the fall season, I was only brought in for about 8-12 hours a week.

    Pros

    Free entrance to the park you work at for you and a friend. 30% discount on food if you work in foods

    Cons

    Horrible parking experience. You only get a .10 raise every year. Long hours 9+ everyday. You dont get your scheduled breaks or lunches. Often are left alone during a rush

    Advice to Management

    The management does not care about the employees only making the park more money. They do not understand or are flexable if you need a day off or are sick

    Pros

    Perks were fantastic, loved the staff and company. I would go back to this company in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    I was pregnant and they made me comfortable and made sure I had enough water/bathroom time and occasional air conditioning although I could have had a little more support (out in the hot sun for 8 hours, unable to wear shorts/capris and had no chair or shade)


  8. Great summer / part time job for students and young adults, but that's really it.

    Pros

    The job itself is fun, and many of the people you are working with make your day go by much faster. Additionally, the majority of customers you deal with will be in a good mood. Free park tickets, discounts, etc.

    Cons

    There's no career there. The pay is minimum wage, and I often felt undervalued. I was given responsibilities of a lead, yet often looked over by the other supervisors. They often choose favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to what the crew have to say about ride operation. They are on the ride all day - They know the ins and outs of the ride. Trust their judgement.

    Pros

    Free admission to the park. Half off the food when you do go to the park.

    Cons

    Working with a bunch of kids. It's all unorganized

    Advice to Management

    I can't give any advice because it's not much they can actually do.

    Pros

    Free entry to any six flags park in the world as long as you are employed. A fun place for a first job. If you like people then you'll have a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Pay is low even when in a leadership position. Long hours for my position.

    Advice to Management

    For the work that all my coworkers do, they should get paid more than minimum wage. I am a lead and one of my coworkers is getting paid more than me. It's only a 50 cent raise. For the work I do, that's not enough.

    Pros

    Opportunities to make lots of friends

    Cons

    Structure is terrible. Don't value employees AT ALL. Will find any little thing to write you up about. Promotions are a joke and so are red dots. Very low pay and they mislead you regarding what you'll be paid.
