    Very good benefits. Only draw back is summer is busiest time of year for parks and taking vacation is a bit harder to schedule.

    You get two types of Leave - Annual and Sick. If you don't use all of your Annual Leave, at the end of the season, you get a payout for however many hours you did not use. Sick Leave rolls over from one season to the next.

    This builds up if you are a permanent employee but if you are a seasonal employee then you mostly just get some money at the end.

    Paid time adds up quickly, though working the long hours and shorter weeks makes he weekends seem like mini vacations anyway.

    Basic payed time off, no frills and very often they will not let you take it only allowing you to collect the back pay at the end of the season.
