      I worked at Carowinds full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Great pay. Convenient for high school and college students. Flexible shifts.

      Cons

      Very low probability for advancing to a non-seasonal position.

      Advice to Management

      Hire from within the same park. Stop getting your non-seasonal full timers from other Cedar Fair parks and invest in the great employees you have.

      I have been working at Carowinds part-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      You get a chance to work outdoors and if you move up, you get 45 hours weekly. You'll meet lots of people here.

      Cons

      Only real con is that it's hard to manage cooperation with other departments. Department organization will vary but most seem very disorganized. Communication is an issue but it's definitely being worked on every year.

      No pay, management sucks and they don't care about you. It's just a job to them and they don't look out for their employee's

      Former Employee - Area Supervisor in Charlotte, NC

      I worked at Carowinds part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      "Fun" job. Good life experience. Have an opportunity to meet a lot of people in your age bracket.

      Cons

      It was hot outside, they are long days, and you're forced to deal with the public all day.

      Advice to Management

      Higher wages would make the work more worth it and it would be nice if everything wasn't so "cliquey". Not very good with interdepartmental cohesion.
