            Approves of CEO

            I worked at Kings Dominion part-time (Less than a year)

            Pros

            Pay Rate $ Discounted Meals (You can eat breakfast & lunch & spend only $5)

            Cons

            A lot of people call out on a daily Sometimes you will get off earlier than expected ( up to 5 hours) It's just such a far drive

            Advice to Management

            I worked in Planet Snoopy which was good for me, You'll get to operate different rides so you won't be at one ride all day. Which is great because after a while you'll want to leave that area and go somewhere else. You only get 1 45 minute break after you've worked maybe 3 hours (It's not as bad as it sounds)
