    I have been working at Carowinds

    Pros

    Meeting new people and get to have a little fun talking to kids, you also get some funny guests who love to joke with you and your able to joke back. Pay is ok.

    Cons

    LONG hours, some really rude guests, rude leads and supervisors. Super strict dress code along with really strict rules on literally everything. Makes you feel like if you breathe in the wrong direction your going to be written up. None of management knows how to compliment employees below them, and all they do is criticize you. If you work in baby care your expected to just...

    Advice to Management

    Learn to compliment and praise people, take it easy on newbies. I understand guidelines are guidelines, but there is a way to go easy on us and still follow the rules.

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

      Pros

      Flexible hours, very easy promotions, lots of exercise, managers are usually very friendly and listen to associates and low level management, lots of hours (very easy to hit 45 hours each week)

      Cons

      Very hot standing outside all day, you have to deal with rude guests, uniforms are horrendous, very strict dress code (no piercings for boys, only lower ear for girls, conservative nail color, short nails, certain departments limit kind of sunglasses you can wear, etc.)

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your low level employees! Lots hate their jobs for things that could very easily be avoided. Give them a reason to love their job!
