    Pros

    So I was located in GA and was only a seasonal worker for fright fest, so my experience is limited
    - Fun to be in six flags

    Cons

    - They promised a lot of things/benefits (like free tickets for me and a couple friends) that I have yet to receive
    - They don't listen to their workers
    -Bad food
    -Most of the staff complained
    -Behind the scenes was unimpressive; they need to update some of their buildings

    I have been working at Six Flags part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Individual work, good pay, work closely with management and employees from corporate center.

    Cons

    Too many problems, too little people, simple jobs that can be fixed in less than an hour are overlooked for the larger problems leading to days of backlogged work.

    Advice to Management

    Add one or two more employees to the department and allow us to freely solve problems instead of solely and only focusing on high-priority issues.

    Pros

    Fun environment, exciting all the time, and new skill development. Depending on your home unit/team, the level of "fun" varies.

    Cons

    Poor training given, poor communication within team, salary should very from unit to unit. For example, the unit "Winners Circle Go Karts" should have a higher base rate due to the amount of work, danger, and thought processing needed to operate the ride successfully than a unit like "kidzopolis" where the unit won't put you in danger due to others actions.
