      Pros

      Amazing pay, especially on special days like Halloween haunt

      Cons

      You can’t schedule days off exactly 2 weeks before, after every Sunday the next week is grayed out and you can’t request days off unless you directly ask the supervisor at your location.

      Pros

      Free admission to the park, fun coworkers, nice break room, and can work as many hours as you want.

      Cons

      Weather can be a pain especially since some rides don't have great fans or roofs. Guests can be difficult to work with at times and sometimes shifts go by very slowly.

      Pros

      Fun coworkers, pay wasn't bad.

      Cons

      Division lead was unhelpful when presented with problems, lifeguards were treated like they were both lifeguards and cleaning crew while being paid significantly less than the cleaning crews, no hazard pay for being attacked by angry birds 1-2x per rotation.
