    I worked at Central Amusement International full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Luna Park in Coney Island was a great place for a young,enthusiastic, and passionate person to learn a lot about the industry. If you have worked in a theme park before than this is going to be everything you expect; long hours, busy summer, dealing with guest services, and developing organic growth ideas. What makes this park different is the doors that can be opened because of the CAI name and Zamperla backing. It's...

    Cons

    For anyone who has never worked in a theme park before this culture may be a little shocking. You need to be prepared to give up the summer vacations and sacrifice some family time. Coney Island can be a difficult and harsh area at times but you just need to have your guard up at certain times and you will be fine. Finding front line team members with a hard work ethic can also be frustrating. Company needs to invest...

    Advice to Management

    Leaving the company was one of the hardest things for me because the team really is like a family. Everyone has everyones back and you get to work on multiple projects with many different members of management. Keep building up the park and nothing but great things will come for CAI and Luna Park. I highly recommend anyone who has the opportunity to work here takes it and runs with it!

    I have been working at Central Amusement International part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Friendly staff, good discounts, fun environment, reasonable hours, good accomadation in beverage and food for hot summer days.

    Cons

    I can not think of much down sides to this job, only that it got really hot sometimes working rides but we knew what we signed up for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Management is very courteous and understanding when it comes to scheduling and helping their employees.

    I worked at Central Amusement International full-time

    Pros

    Free wristbands every month, 50% off lunch

    Cons

    Extremely long hours, you have to work 50-55 hours every week in the summer if you are full time. The managers do not care about you. No bonus, horrible culture.

    Advice to Management

    You guys need to appreciate the hard work your employees put out. Stop spending soo much money on expensive lunch for only high executives and spend more time with your employees and value there happiness.
