    I have been working at Six Flags part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Management is great, and will always be there if you need them
    - Free entry to the park and a 15% discount
    - Very flexible scheduling

    Cons

    - A bit of favoritism with the managers depending on the department
    - Very strict dress code (won't be able to clock in for the littlest things)
    - Can get very stressful with the amount of guests that constantly approach you

    Advice to Management

    Drop the red dot system. I got a fair number of red dots, but it easily gets too competitive between departments and employees. The employees who didn't get red dots often felt inferior as an employee.


  2. "Great for a year or two of fun. Not so great if you're looking to make a career out of it."

    I have been working at Six Flags full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at a theme park lends itself to a unique work setting, fun co-workers, and lots of variety in the workday.

    Cons

    Very poorly managed company. The company spends lots of money on some things and nothing on others. Cheap just doesn't describe it well enough. Lots of dryrotted, leaking, moldy trailers and buildings. Air conditioning and heating is a luxury that not all of the offices have.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in the companies' facilities and employees will take the company to the next level.
