    I worked at Raging Waters full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management doesn’t watch workers and supervisors Are chill. Lots of free food when they’re not watching literally the biggest morons.

    Cons

    Human Resources Dept SUCKS! They don’t answer the phones so you can’t call in. Gate is locked in morning so if your shift starts at 10:30 you’re probably not getting in until 11. Overall poor management and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Work on organizing Human Resources and distributing promotions to the ones who deserve it most. Fire lazy staff who don’t know what their doing, no matter how long they’ve worked their.

    I worked at Raging Waters part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co workers are really great and you're guarantee long hours. Most of the team members are around the same age so they all get along really well.

    Cons

    Management, cleanliness, and organization are all horrible. You're constantly running out of everything and have items on the menu you didn't even sell.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all of management

    I worked at Raging Waters part-time

    Pros

    Working at Raging Waters was a very big responsibility and taught me many things that I never knew about such as equipment like the AED, oxygen tank, and seal-easy mask. I also learned the different types of rescues and drownings in order to prepare for any emergencies. Overall, it was a stressful training process, but it definitely allowed me to learn alot about the human body and is great for anyone who wants a taste at encountering life-threatening emergencies and aspires to be somewhere in the medical field.

    Cons

    It was always so hot working there. I got a really bad tan and even got sun spots. I went through so many bottles of sunblock. Also, many of the customers there are rude and snappy, but always try to make their visit satisfactory.

    Advice to Management

    More water in the water buckets! It runs out pretty quick and I am left dying in the sun. Also, something should be done about the long rotations. Being stuck in one position is agonizing.

    Pros

    Flexible, Easy Work, Fun Environment, Good benefits.

    Cons

    No training was given at all
    Very little management

    Advice to Management

    Have at least one person trained at each station so at least someone knows what they are doing and we don't have to use trial and error to figure it out

    I worked at Raging Waters full-time

    Pros

    Free entry for employees and you got discounts on the food at the park. I can not think of any others really...

    Cons

    Extremely stressful work environment, understaffed at all times, they didn't seem to care for their employees much (ex. Not leaving sufficient umbrella cover or being left a stand for hours).

    Advice to Management

    They need to take better care of their lifeguards. Part of why the job is so bad is not the management, however, and simply the stressful environment and belligerent guests.
