    I worked at Six Flags full-time

    Pros

    Meet great people from staff to guests; free admission into park all season long with one guest pass; potential to receive more free tickets for friends the more hours you work; discounted food and apparel

    Cons

    Friend was fired for something she didn't do; discounts could be higher; certain workers should start with a higher pay

    Advice to Management

    Thoroughly investigate before firing someone; start the workers who are the "most important part of the park" with a higher pay
