    Pros

    You get free entry, don't have to pay for rides, 10% discount on merchandise only

    Cons

    You work for 12 hours doing alt of extra work, only 2 10 min breaks and half hour lunch in which it takes you almost the whole half hour to go get your lunch from the locker or to get to the cafeteria, not allowed to have cash on you or you get accused of stealing, if you put even a fry in you mouth you can get accused of stealing and band from the property, some of the supervisors are rude to the lower level staff.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to other staff, either raise the pay or shorten the work shift and load, make it so the % discount is higher and for all merchandise and food for all employees
