          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.
