    Hours were not always consistent.

    I worked at Lake Compounce part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Season pass to lake compounce, six flags and Hershey park

    Cons

    Worked 9 hour shift once with only a 15 minute break. You're on your feet the entire time dealing with rude guests and management does not have your back.

    I worked at Lake Compounce part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with people who are early college and some high school if you are around that age range is fun. Free entry to park which I used maybe 1 time because I was sick of being there.

    Work parties are fun, of which there are 3.

    If you are in games like I was it is a super easy job.

    Great if you a job for summer, Halloween, or before Xmas.

    Cons

    Minimum wage. Feel like you are very replaceable and that upper management could not care less about you as a general employee. The games department was super cliquey and was unfair to people who weren't favored, but I think things have completely changed. If you get caught with your phone out you get fired on spot!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as if they are valued.

    I worked at Lake Compounce part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you're young, you're working with people your own age and it makes things tolerable at times.

    Free entry to the park whenever you want, which is nice.

    Some of the jobs like ride attendant and technician, front gate, are easy and rewarding

    Room for growth... I mean, it's seasonal work, but there is growth.

    Cons

    This is for foods only:

    - Working conditions are awful. It is so hot in there. People pass out all the time.

    - Long hours, and non-commital management that don't care about your needs, only theirs. If you want to leave at your scheduled shift, they beg you to stay, and you become stigmatized if you don't.

    - Workplace harassment is common and, really, expected. Even from some of the adult managers there. It is disgusting.

    - Social life goes down the drain. You don't have one.

    Advice to Management

    Completely rehaul your company's power format and management levels.
