    I have been working at Carowinds part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Friendly staff, Free admission (to every Cedar Fair park, as well as Dollywood with paystub,) discounted food, free tickets for family, good hours, solid pay, among many other things.

    Cons

    This job can be exhausting, in a good way. Sometimes, customers can be rude, which can be annoying.

    "It was nice to meet new people everyday but on some days you have people with nasty attitudes to get QuickQ cards."

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

    Pros

    The pay was decent. You get 4 free tickets your first year working after you work 150hours. Then your ID gets you free entry into the park, free parking and discount on food.

    Cons

    The supervisors acted like they didn’t want to come to help us when we had a problem with a guest.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management needs to come outside more and help the associates.

    I have been working at Carowinds part-time

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good. There are many employees so you can make a lot of friends while working. You get into the park for free and you get a discount on food and merchandise. Depending on the department, they are flexible with scheduling.

    Cons

    Depending on the position, you may be required to stand outside all day, which is uncomfortable. Employee cafeteria not always up to par.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if they would give equal notice and praise to all departments and provide better food with a cleaner cafeteria space.

      Terrible management, extreme mistreatment and abuse of employees, tedious work, disrespected by managers and sent home early every day for no reason
