    Pros

    Worked with a lot of people my age. Got free rides at the Boardwalk.

    Cons

    Overpriced food for employees. Customers often have a way of making you feel like a worthless human being.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Given that your product (food) is priced at a premium and employee wages are only slightly above minimum wage, it would be fair to give employees a bigger discount so that they don't feel like you're profiting from them on their lunch breaks.

    Pros

    Work at the beach with generally great weather.

    Cons

    Terrible management. The people they promote are the ones that have worked as crew members for their entire high school youth. Their real world experiences are extremely shallow which severely hurts their overall leadership qualities. As a result they often promote the wrong workers. Immaturity and favoritism is abundant within the Area "Supervisors"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get an education. Get out of Santa Cruz. Listen.

    Fun, but uncomfortably warm.

    Pros

    It is by the beach, the crew members are generally easy to get along with, and for a seasonal job, it is not bad for a person of high school- or community college-age with no real responsibilities.

    Cons

    Growth is severely limited, as in there is a point where the money you are earning does not come close to what you deserve for the work you put in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add air conditioning units or proper ventilation to the stores with ovens or fryers. It is unreal how hot those kitchens get, and I guarantee customer satisfaction would increase if the employees working for just over minimum wage weren't miserable while making their food.
