    I worked at Six Flags part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced and fun on days like 4th of july or Fright Fest
    Tons of down time, got to walk around wherever I wanted and see all the backstage areas of the park
    Good supervisors, lots of training provided
    Good first experience in medical field

    Cons

    Pay wasn't great.
    Animal Trainers, Safety, and Security treated well, but people in Food or Rides were pretty disposable.

    Pros

    Great place to work for a summer job. Teachers are especially recommended to apply. Hours are great and flexibility is a plus. Great season benefits, etc.

    Cons

    Pay isn't the best. Have to work without a lot of young people (14-15 year olds) and it can be hot during the summer.

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

    Pros

    Interesting people and you get free access to all of the parks which is nice when you want to be able to do that.

    Cons

    Interesting people and methods. Makes sense since it's so large but they really don't care too much about you as a person.

    Advice to Management

    Need more effective organizational skills

    I have been working at Six Flags part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -You get to work on customer service skills
    -Employee discount and your badge serves as a buddy pass
    -You can meet some amazing people
    -The nice customers make it worth working

    Cons

    -The job description doesn't detail all of the work you actually do
    -They pay the same for overtime
    -They are often short-staffed
    -Training doesn't prepare you for mean customers

    Advice to Management

    -Focus more on infrastructure and employee training than grooming guidelines. The color of someone's socks are irrelevant if the parking lot has yet to be paved and is filled with potholes

    Pros

    Your co workers
    Free entry
    A basic job that get you basic money, plus some if you mingle right

    Cons

    Full-Time Supervisors
    CONservative rules that doesn't make any sense and at times are down right unnecessary

    To the true management, I'll suggest looking into the people that you put in charge of the things you don't directly oversee. You might find something.

    Great people environment. Unlimited opportunities within the park for employment. Great customer interaction opportunities. Overtime opportunities available on a daily basis.
