I worked at Six Flags full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good for experience and easy enough to get into low level leadership positions. Low level management is friendly enough most of the time. Great co-workers and free entry to park.

Cons

Higher management is disrespectful. HR is only interest in protecting Six Flags's interests. International employees are forced to live in cheap apartments and while promised amenities like internet and comfortable mattresses few rooms actually make true on these promises. International employees are actually generally disrespected by management. I knew a girl who was fired and sent back to Asia because she was dehydrated, no one was bringing her water, so she melted Dip n Dots and drank them. Long hours expected and no overtime. Double shifts often scheduled, even when they are not if you are a Lead or higher expect to stay well past your scheduled shift.

Advice to Management

Re-evaluate what employees do for your company. Treat them with respect. Treat international employees as adults (which they are, some with children).

  2. "A little young and political"

    I worked at Six Flags part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a great way to make some money while I was in between jobs. They seem to accept everyone and it is also a good way to get experience.

    Cons

    As an older person going in to work there, it felt too much like a high school with many young immature workers (I was in food service). The politics of leads/managers/etc seemed unnecessary.
