I worked at Canobie Lake Park full-time (More than a year)
Laid back postition. Great upper management. Performers we worked with were mostly extremely professional and very pleasant to talk to. Made a lot of friends that I still talk to today.
Pay was lower for a role that required more experience than your regular canobie employee. Theater techs needed to know lighting and audio or be able to learn it very quickly I think $10 an hour would have been fair we were paid 8.5 with no OT
Middle management was not great. A few people have been burnt out being with canobie for years working 60-80 hours a week and it showed in their work. They tended to get very irritable and it became hard to get work done. It was HOT but it's a job where you work outside so it comes with the territory. Offsite parking is a real drag if you have to do it make sure you give yourself more time.
Advice to Management
Hire more middle managers and give them more time off expecting a manager to work 60-80 hours a week and still be an effective leader is not effective in any work environment.
I applied through other source. I interviewed at Canobie Lake Park (Salem, NH).
Quick interview saw I worked with lighting and audio pretty much gave me the job on the spot. Very easy Chris is a great guy and a great boss hope he still works there.
