Mission: CREATING FUN AND THRILLS FOR ALL AGES
I have been working at Six Flags full-time (More than 3 years)
Schedules are extremely flexible which is great for college students, there was a great departmental management from our director to our supervisor (Marketing), the team I worked with was truly amazing, there is a discount on food & merchandise when you visit the park as a guest, there is a pretty good employee cafeteria area, and there are fun events that HR puts on for employees and that the department holds. You also get to have FUN at work while making the guests SMILE.
There are not many cons of working here. The main cons are the heat, long hours, you no longer have weekends, etc. (But these are expected of working in the summer and wouldn't really be cons)
Advice to Management
Follow some best practices from other parks and other departments. Some departments lead the way on retention & engagement. Check out their methods to see how to improve the employee experience at the park overall. Also, give periodic updates on the TMV and what improvements are being made (it's addressed at the beginning of the season but by publishing what's being done throughout the season, it'll show that those surveys matter)
I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Six Flags (San Antonio, TX).
Went to a career fair, had three interviews in quick succession asked me some basic interview questions about customer service, basic math problems and the like. Very straight forward for a very straight forward position. It can be incredibly time consuming and well it was mainly a bunch of high schoolers such as myself at the time...so if you can imagine (or even WANT to imagine) that aspect can be less than enjoyable.
