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

Pros

Unlimited free visits and parking, 30% off park merchandise. Work was pretty fun if you had a good group of friends to hang out with, but if you don't like your co-workers it probably won't be a good job. Average Starting pay, $7.50 I believe.

Cons

Some co-workers and managers are very immature, but you should expect that at a business that hires mainly minors. I worked late hours at my position, but not all will have this experience. Also, most employees are "seasonal", and you will be "let go" just after new years. You have to go through the hiring and orientation process all over again each february to start work in March for spring break. Because you're seasonal, there is no overtime or earned vacation time/sick days. Also, no benefits unless you're a full-time manager.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees more, and hire more Loss Prevention employees!

    Pay the leads more, they do so much work and don't get paid enough.

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

    Pros

    Good Employee Benefits
    Pay raise every season
    Ability to get rewards throughout the season
    Great guest experience
    Free tickets and 30% off everything

    Cons

    Entertainment was the worst. They expected perfection without really training for it.
    6 managers all telling me different things and then getting mad at me for following other managers.
    Was blacklisted and never told I was fired. They never gave me a reason and even made it look like I was going to be hired again until security kicked me out.

    Advice to Management

    First, all leads and managers should be on the same page. The goal is to get guests to go see characters,right? Find a way to get together and not have different opinions. Second, actually tell someone they're not allowed back and what reason. Most people will be hurt, but if you tell them WHY they weren't welcomed back maybe they can learn for their next job. I still don't know what I did wrong!
