    I worked at Silverwood full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    To get to come to the park for free when ever you want and for ever 40 hours you get a ticket for family and friends.

    Cons

    They work you like nothing else. They are always low staffed and I've had to work a fe 13 house shifts a few times. Also it can get really hot!

    Advice to Management

    Make us want to come to work

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

    Pros

    Lots of young seasonal workers and employee events. Discounts at the park. Free admission to the park. Free extra tickets into the park every 40 hours worked.

    Cons

    Dead days, not much to do. Lightning storms shut down the park. Air conditioning only in about 50% of the work areas for food and beverage. Long hour days, depending on your job.

    Advice to Management

    Help put workers into places that they really fit into, even if it is not where they started working. Be open to workers' ideas even if they are really young to have big ideas, you could be surprised.

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

    Pros

    It is a fun summer job that is usually not labor intensive.

    Cons

    Hours at the beginning of the season can be hard to come by and by the end of the season they are begging you to work everyday because everyone has quit.

    Advice to Management

    You need to reformat your employee guest policy. During the beginning of the summer when everyone wants to go the employees do not have enough passes and by the end of the year you have a stock pile.

    Free park entrance/tickets
    Plenty of peers, making it easy to find your group of friends

    Split days into two shifts, but still allow people to work both shifts if they want.

    I have been working at Silverwood full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Silverwood Theme Park has great staff, the management is professionally trained, and they provide numerous support. The guests are also a lot of fun, overall a great job thats experience that is priceless.

    Cons

    Silverwood doesn't pay overtime, pay rate is very low, schedules lots of hours (thus you don't have a summer life), and virtually no benefits. Also, the park is falling apart behind the scenes, so the work environment isn't the greatest.

    Advice to Management

    Park needs to rebuild many of the buildings, make them more comfortable to work in, needs to pay overtime and include more benefits, especially to ones that return year after year. Park just needs to put a lot more money into employees.

    No downsides that I can think of.
