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

    Pros

    Experience. Experience. Experience. This is not your traditional LP job. We actually conduct investigations and interviews. The manager is very experienced and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Not respected and pay is low. Other departments don't care about losses or how they treat support departments. Pay is still $3-4 lower than others despite doing more.

    Advice to Management

    Raise wages and grow up.

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

    Pros

    The bonus structure only makes sense if you're applying as a Corporate Executive. The pay rate isn't as competitive as Great America, but for an entry sales position, this is a good company.

    Cons

    There is literally no growth or leadership pipeline. "Lifers" will always take precedent as well as favorites over merit and hard work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Please look within yourselves and understand that you who do not listen and mentor your employees, you will in fact lose the employees who produce the very most for you each year.

    Pros

    Great way to meet people
    Flexible schedule
    Benefits - ticket incentives, Team Six Rewards, Buddy Pass, Discount on Food and Retail
    For a park as large as SFOG - they do a great job communicating to the team members

    Cons

    Pay
    Working outside in the elements - heat, rain, cold etc.
    Scheduling
    Employee Cafeteria could be a lot cleaner but that's because the employees don't pick up after themselves.

    Pros

    Job positions are easy to adapt to
    Good pay
    Very strong work unit

    Cons

    Physically taxing for those that are not very physical
    Can feel very claustrophobic at times; very little space to get up and move around when working in the offices

    Advice to Management

    Give employers who work in the office some free time to stretch their legs and move around, in order for them to become more productive and less lethargic.

    Pros

    Coworkers and friends are literally the only good thing about working at Six Flags (Over Texas) but there's a 20-word minimum for this category.

    Cons

    They will classify you as "seasonal" even if you work 40+ hours a week consistently (even when park is closed).
    NO OVERTIME
    Scheduled shift end time IS NOT the time you leave. Generally, you can expect to stay at least an hour after your scheduled clockout time. (again, no overtime, either.)
    Management genuinely doesn't care if you live or die.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that your employees are human beings, and not every employee is 16 years old. We have bills, needs, lives, etc.

    I worked at Six Flags (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall, the management and fellow co-workers are very fun and exciting to be around, they made work bearable and worthwhile. The guest too also helped add on the the experience and it made it worthwhile to make them happy or to joke around with, there was very few rude customers.

    Cons

    Working environment in Texas during the summers can be horrible. It could be stressful at times to working in games because you're consistently tasked with making money and at that you always feel as though you're being watched because management would always be on you. It was a very stressful experience at times.
