    I worked at Six Flags full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very upbeat and energetic staff and management to ensure customer satisfaction.
    Work environment was very active and enjoyable, being an amusement park.
    Employed many high school and college students.

    Cons

    The area (Vallejo) had all types of customers, including many rough and offensive people. However, this is very much a characteristic of all retail, but the area of this job made it tougher.

    Advice to Management

    Continue supporting and understanding high school and college students.
    Keep up efficient scheduling and fill-in hours.

    National Sponsorship Sales Role Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Six Flags (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Absolutely and totally unprofessional!

    After seeing a post from late last year, I decided that I too should add my experience for the exact same position. My experience goes back to March 2016. I applied on line via the Six Flags careers portal in the morning . Amazingly, I received an email from the hiring manager a few hours later to set up a phone interview.

    The call lasted about 40 minutes and covered the essential background info as well as a few (limited) insights about the role. I was then asked to create a presentation for a potential client target for Six Flags. We established time line for delivery and left it there.

    Then I set to work putting together what was a rather well thought out, peer reviewed presentation for the hiring VP. I had shared the work as it was being developed with people on the agency side--one of whom had worked on the particular brand I chose to target for this exercise. Once completed, I hit send.

    What then followed was a steady stream of either no response or apologies for delay. Beyond a simple "yes, I have the presentation," and a terse "we're rethinking the position and I'll get back to you in about a week," all communication ceased.

    No feedback, no thank you for my time, nothing. And then, eventually, came the auto-email from the tracking system telling me I am no longer viable for the position. Classy.

    In 2017, the position reappeared on the Careers site...and probably more for fun than anything else, I again applied. My status has been in limbo ever since.

    The hiring manager apparently is far too busy to respond to emails let alone follow up with people interviewed and left hanging. HR clearly leaves these things to the hiring managers outside of sending the reject letters. Talk about a disconnect.

    As this particular position is a Corporate job, the lack of courtesy and professionalism is beyond belief. Unless of course, the whole point of the presentation exercise is to arm the bigger team with ideas to go out and sell against. Which is even more appalling. The poster from August 2017 and their experience is identical to mine--which should tell you everything you need to know about this particular department and this hiring manager.

    Advice to candidates: Your talents and ideas are being usurped. The effort and energy you will likely put into this 'demo' presentation is barely worth the effort when considering the utter lack of feedback and courtesy.

    Advice to Six Flags: Find a better manager for this operating unit. Clearly scattered and too busy to engage in bringing in good talent. Additionally, increase accountability to HR when it comes to recruitment. In these cases, they've pretty much abdicated any responsibility to an inept and unfocused hiring manager.

    Lesson learned. At least where Six Flags is concerned.
