    Overall good company, be prepared to do any and everything. Including serving food, ice cream, operating rides if needed. Wear all hats here.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Very laid back environment.

    Cons

    Most promotions require the employree to relocate to another Six Flags park in another state. There were very few promotions at our smaller park.

    Advice to Management

    Awesome leadership at our park. Even very good leadership at the corporate level. Our park was closed down due to financial restraint but other parks seem to be doing very well.

    Six Flags behaves like a true family. There's an open door policy at every level, even up to the very top. There's immense pride and comraderie at the Parks and throughout the organization. Also a great level of transparency. Also there is an immense commitment to customer service and every single customer request is looked out for.

    Pros

    Free Admission, tickets for friends, making new friends.
    Great as a summer job but I wouldn't want stay there too long.
    Meeting celebrities as music artists when concerts go on at the park.

    Cons

    Working in high heat, cold, rain, wind and just about any other weather condition you can imagine.
    Guests can be rude and treat you like you're worthless, however some are very nice and fun to talk to.
    Hours can be crazy and random when night shifts are late or call in.

    Pros

    Great people who know how to balance work and home life. Fair wages and good benefits such as a company car and home office if you work in outer market. Even though you may not work in the office you'll still have a since of family. Best job I've ever had.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little better but the company just went through bankruptcy. You have to work some weekends. Outer market sales people travel 75% of the time.

    Advice to Management

    When making decisions about who to lay off - don't cut your sales staff that make you money. I brought in more than $250K in sales each year and got laid off because the territory was shut down. There had been major growth each year that I worked it.

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

    Pros

    Experienced senior staff, seasonal growth opportunities, great enviroment, fun perks, team member only parties, opportunities to network, fair scheduling

    Cons

    Seasonal employment for the most part, difficult to break into full time because of small head count and low turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving to build and retain dependable teams. Be a world class leader, not a manager, and it will reflect in your team.
