    I worked at Carowinds part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Meeting new people Free time in the park Nice pay

    Cons

    Scheduling Managers Lunch Break Rules Reward program Terrible support

    Advice to Management

    I would advise to check up on your managers because when I worked there they went to sleep in the stock rooms.

    I have been working at Carowinds part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I made new friends easily, it is good experience in customer service/ retail, the people who work here are extremely friendly, and they really try their best to make sure the associates have a great time working there.

    Cons

    The heat (but that's nothing you can control), the guests, and the food at coasters

    Advice to Management

    Get better food at coasters

    Meet a lot of new people and the benefit is that you get in for free and receive discounts on merchandise.

    I worked at Carowinds full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Best friends I could ever make. You have fun with you co-workers and supers. Decent pay at the merch sales associate level.

    Cons

    Carowinds is hot and you are outside all the time. Little shade. You can not buy food in the park. You have an employee restaurant in the back which is pricey at best and the food is very mediocre. Work long hours and always on your feet. Can not sit down. Have to buy your (horrible looking) uniform.
