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

Pros

Experienced senior staff, seasonal growth opportunities, great enviroment, fun perks, team member only parties, opportunities to network, fair scheduling

Cons

Seasonal employment for the most part, difficult to break into full time because of small head count and low turnover.

Advice to Management

Keep striving to build and retain dependable teams. Be a world class leader, not a manager, and it will reflect in your team.

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

    Pros

    Fun, unique opportunity to work and meet people. You get to interact with guests who most of the time are courteous and polite. You get to go into the park for free on most days and other times on employee party nights.

    Cons

    Getting a hold of a supervisor outside of work is impossible. Their rule system has no wiggle room and gets most people fired very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Getting mesages to supervisors are very important and needs to happen efficiently.

    I worked at Six Flags part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a decent summer job I guess; Some parts are air conditioned. You'll get a tan by the end. The employee perks are a decent bonus, including free admission for yourself and another, plus free extra tickets periodically.

    Cons

    Management cheats employees out of lunch breaks; is unresponsive to employee complaints; has unreliable scheduling; sets unrealistic requirements resulting in 75% turnover in some departments

    Advice to Management

    Stop the turnover! You've lost and alienated employees this way. The $10 over and under till rule forced me to quit, though I never stole. When you handle thousands of dollars on a busy day, mistakes can happen!
