    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kings Dominion part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    flexible hours (with proper notice) work isn't too difficult coworkers are generally good people to be around depending on your home location, it could either end up being fairly fun or dreadfully boring, but I can't recall any particularly bad experiences

    Cons

    supervisors are very hit or miss-- the bad ones will leave you with lasting resentment (though the good ones will stick with you) promotion is more tied to connections than performance-- being tight with your supervisor gives you better odds of being referred for promotion than doing the job well
