    I have been working at Carowinds part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I found absolutely nothing whatsoever positive about the job in the time I worked here, besides the four measly free tickets this MULTIMILLION dollar company gives you, like its anywhere near enough compensation for being worked like a dog.

    Cons

    I had to quit the job because I had to BEG MY supervisors for breaks every weekend, and once had to threaten to walk out in order to get my break. I understand that, while it does get busy, I am working minimum wage outside in the sun, over a grill, making minimum wage, so its completely unfair to try to deny me my breaks. Supervisors also expected me to stay until THEY wanted me to go home, not the time that it said...

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about your employees- no matter how busy it gets, we're making minimum wage, and we need to sit down and get out of the head.
