      Good first job out of highschool. Hours were decent.

      Good First Job

      Pros

      While I worked in the culinary department, hours were flexible, and they were willing to schedule around my availability. The process of requesting time off was simple. The position will help you build your customer service and teamwork skills.

      Cons

      No bonus pay for weekends or holidays and unpaid breaks. The work can get repetitive if you're in the same position every day. Management does not check on their locations/employees often. When the park gets busy, understaffing is possible, resulting in long lines and frustrated customers. The software used in the registers had several technical issues, which also resulted in stress and dissatisfied customers.

      Pros

      great first job if your eager to make money, they give as much hours as possible (pro and con), discounts (that you may not use since you work so much), time off requested is granted, respects availability, many special event for employees, a great "moving uo the ladder" job, co-workers can become great friends

      Cons

      only one break room that sells mediocre food and only one microwave, can't clock in or out until you're in your division, can't have the park food on your break, can't ride rides on your break, park basically tries to control what you do on your break which is illegal because it is unpaid, no time and a half which leaves you out of a lot of money because of the amount of Sundays (weekend deferral) and holidays worked, under paid, attendant stand their whole shift even when the ride is down, they make you stand in thunderstorms to tell guest the ride is down (as if its not obvious and you being out there is the reason they think it's open), if you have open availability you'll spend more time here than you do at home, they call you to work on your day off
