    I worked at Hershey Entertainment part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being a games clerk was great. I worked in the arcade and the job was pretty simple. You hand out prizes, do some light cleaning, hand out change, and help guests. Great place to work for a first job. You also get a 50 cent raise each year you return.

    Cons

    The pay is the bare minimum. If you want a high paying job, don't work here.

    Pros

    End up with the property and team and it's like a 2nd family

    Cons

    Fun and camaraderie depend on the property you are at, some properties are not so good

    Advice to Management

    Do not assume all full time Supervisors are treating their full time reports with respect, or growing them professionally. More often than not they have one face for their boss and upper management, and another face for their direct report(s).
