    Pros

    Plenty of awesome corporate people around at the park that put you in the position to succeed. Also a great place to learn the ropes of the field and to start off while making new connections with people who will be beneficial in your future life

    Cons

    I haven't really ran into a con I've enjoyed every year I've been with the company. Some of the teenagers you work with are however lazy and don't do all that much but other than that nothing!

    Advice to Management

    While everything is awesome people wise equipment wise the park could use many upgrades to catch up to the other parks. It's very outdated and some of the equipment we have is also outdated

    Pros

    Indoors and Air Conditioned, nice bosses, when I worked there they had extra money and typically bought us pizza. Parking privileges in the upper lot when there is not a concert.

    Most of the positions available are during the night shift. Hours are not consistent, you can work 6 hours or 12 hours. They company itself is poor and training is terrible.
