    Advice to Management

    I love calaway and think every thing is really awesome. The only thing I would change are the pants they are a little unflattering but I can't want to come back.

    I worked at Calaway Park (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Met some good people, free park passes, and activities outside of work. Fun things like Halloweekends where you don't have to wear the awful uniform.

    Cons

    Almost all the staff are in high school, so most socialization is uninspiring and a little inappropriate, as an adult. The job is run of the mill, boring, and you get yelled at a lot for dumb stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Being less picky about how downtime is used, letting people learn other positions around the park to pick up extra shifts if needed. I was told I would be full time and was never given that.
