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

    Pros

    One pro is the small little things that the company gets you, like a waterbottle every six months or so, or a ticket to another six flags park. You also get free flashpass if youre in flashpass

    Cons

    Seriously though, I would not work here again. The hierarchy will make your life hell. The managers will put you under duress for no reason, and will be waiting in the background watching your every move till you make a mistake.
    They send employees on promotion runs, where they just go and promote. No matter if the weather is burning, you have to go. Being scorched does not give you the right to stay back. The politics of the office will run you down and beat you to a pulp. The pay is minimum wage so thats a bonus. DO NOT RECOMMEND AT ALL

    Advice to Management

    You really need to improve on the conduct of supervisors and managers. Largely unchecked, they can make an employee's life miserable. The hierarchy is one thing, but micromanaging management does more harm than good. Change so that less employees leave dissatisfied

    I have been working at Six Flags part-time

    Pros

    The pay is good. That's about it l.

    Cons

    Where to start, the leads think they're better than everyone else and some will call you out if a guest makes a complaint about you in front of everyone. HR is a joke as are the Supervisors. You'll never see your Supervisors unless you're getting certified.

    Advice to Management

    If you're smart, you'll listen to the employees or you'll be running a park on your own.

    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of interesting people and enjoy seeing people having fun. This job is a great first job and is fairly easy.

    Cons

    If you work over summer it will be hot. You'll deal with a lot of angry guests and coworkers. Good work hours are also hit or miss.

    Advice to Management

    Take into consideration that a lot of your workers are minors and this is their first job. Not everyone will be perfect at what they do at first.

    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.

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

    Pros

    experience and free tickets/discounts for employees. There is nothing else that is a pro that I can list here which is saddening

    Cons

    Weather, low pay, corrupt management, full time vs seasonal discrimination, very strict grooming standards and dress code policies, benefits, raises are 10 cents a year and caps out at 3 years for seasonal employees

    Advice to Management

    Stop discriminating full time vs seasonal status. Full times are treated like aristocrats and seasonals like peasants. Ridiculous

    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

    You do get free admission into the park but they usually have you working so much you don't have time to go.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible and the treatment is worse. McDonald's is better.

    Pros

    you get to meet people from all over the world and watch the kids have so much fun watching the animals. Its a fun environment and you can work your way up quickly and you can get your family or friends a discount for tickets or items. there are a lot of opportunities working for this company.

    Cons

    Working there is a lot of walking and standing. Listening to all the loud noises and the kids screaming inside the stores. Working in the heat depending where you are and the cold even if there is rain.

    - Visit the park for free and also bring a friend with you
    - Discounts with badge and benefits
    - Picnics, fright nights, ride openings just for employees
    - Looks good on resume for customer service
    - Positive place to work at

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Make bigger or better signs for people to see that there are no bags/backpacks allowed on some rides. Some people wait in line for a long time and then get sent back because they can't put the bag aside.
