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

Pros

free admission, tickets, and free soda in the eating area.
also they're pretty flexible with your schedule (so if you have a life tell them about it so they wont mess your social life up)

Cons

you will legitimately give up your civilian life during your shifts working like a slave in hard to believe climates whether it's rain or the burning hot sun for minimum wage. hospitality service is given by you, the host while the leads-supervisors give you the task that needs to be done.
Since it's more a younger atmosphere you will have crew members who gossip as if it's a high school surrounding and people are intimidating. The only people respected the presidents of the park.

Advice to Management

Treat employees like guest, with respect because they're the ones who give you the title you have.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours. I got to meet a lot of people. In the summer international would come and that would be interesting because I'd get to meet people from other countries.

    Cons

    Its a very high stress environment, and there is not a lot of opportunity for advancement. The also have forced up selling which is really crappy and lame.

    Advice to Management

    I think that it would good to pay people more, and to cut off the forced up-selling.

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

    Pros

    Great teams and it is actually a great first job. Many people undervalue the teamwork and people skills that this job takes. Also, free season pass with a friend pass.

    Cons

    The job is exhausting, tending to the guest's needs and safety, plus other duties, and then the heat on top of that.

    Advice to Management

    There are way too many corners cut for our pay (for example, you don't get paid to walk to your ride and you must show up early to get to your ride at your scheduled time). On top of that, you get clocked out before leaving the ride, so many guests still come up to you and ask for help. The clock in/out should be at the HR office.
