    I worked at Kings Island part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun Environment
    Can usually work as many or as few hours as you want
    Opportunity to advance if you work hard and care about the guests
    Almost always hiring

    Cons

    No accommodations for family emergencies. A co-worker found out his son was deploying that weekend and management wouldn't let him take time off to go see him.
    Supervisors are obsessed with enforcing small regulations, to the ire of guests and employees.
    Guests are often difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Try to see things from the guest's point of view. They're usually frustrated because of some mistake the park made.
