    I worked at Dorney Park part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is literally not a single pro

    Cons

    Bad and lying management, low pay, guests that lie and get you punished, too stressful for what it's worth

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Dorney Park for multiple years. Dorney has been going downhill over the years. The management of most departments absolutely sucks. Dorney has been taking guest complaints way too seriously by changing things that don't need to be changed. Worst yet, if a guest straight up LIES in a complaint, Dorney DOESN'T even verify the event with the employee and they punish the employee. How fair is that? You get punished...

    I have been working at Dorney Park part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work culture is great and you have some very great employees and management and some not so great. However that’s to be expected aside from that it’s super fun I mean what can’t be a fun about an amusement park. Definitely a job for those who are younger but the pay should still be higher than what it is.

    Cons

    Low pay and long hours

    I worked at Dorney Park part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is good for a summer job Chance to meet and get to know people from all over the area and all over the world Get to go to the park for free Can earn free tickets for friends and family

    Cons

    At times, can feel like slave work Tend to over staff Raises could be better

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to never under/over staff There are many kids that won’t work all day, but then someone else gets in trouble for carrying their phone with them in their pocket. Less hour requirements for free tickets?
