      Disapproves of CEO

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

      Pros

      It's easy They work with your schedule - somewhat Nice associates for the most part

      Cons

      Very low pay - I got minimum wage in Admissions Gets very boring very quickly - you'll be counting down the minutes right when you get there Aggravated customers ALL THE TIME Poor management and structure - they don't trust you AT ALL

      Advice to Management

      Please trust your employees more and stop slapping their hand every time a customer messes up, not the employee Please pay your employees more - minimum wage isn't cutting what I have to deal with every day Please make the structure more transparent and stop treating us like infants who need a parent behind their back 24/7
