    I have been working at Alton Towers Resort full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing atmosphere, Fantastic surroundings, every day is completely different. I truly love what i do, i get the chance to work on some ground breaking new attractions and events, using my knowledge from outside the resort in a truly unique environment. I am incredibly lucky to come to work, have a whole heap of fun and get paid to do so! My work colleges are more like extended family. There is no other office that has the views this place does, or the excitement!

    Cons

    I travel over 60min a day each way to get to work, this is a downside as its costs
    a lot in fuel however i only do this because i love what i do and wound't want to work anywhere else!
