I have been working at Space Needle part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great tips, great view, great food, union shop easy to pick up shifts. Schedule is set for months at a time but plenty of people to trade shifts with.

Cons

Union shop. The more seniority you have the better. As a first year I get the left overs and last picks for shifts. Still I make $200 a lunch shift regularly.

Advice to Management

Negotiate with the union so people can't call in with the union flu all the time. It make it hard for you to be certain you are staffed right on a beautiful summer day

    I worked at Space Needle part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation was fair, union position, management was great, loved a lot of my coworkers.

    Cons

    In my department (Guest Services) it was hard to get time off because generally 3 out of the 4 employees in my department were working each day, so there wasn't much wiggle room.

    Advice to Management

    Career growth trajectory is not very transparent so it doesn't encourage employees to be better

    Management and HR very poor services.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better Job with your human resources team, change your hiring process, you have a high turn over for a reason. your process sucks.
