    I have been working at Water Country USA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, Great Co-Workers, flexible hours, constant hours. You will never have a dull day, something new will always happen. Pretty much guaranteed a job when applying. Unlimited free admission to all Seaworld parks and free tickets for family members.

    Cons

    You have to take of 17 days in advance, and even then it may not get approved. Ugly uniforms.

    Advice to Management

    Only promote people that have at least three seasons of experience, instead of someone who just got hired.

    I worked at Water Country USA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment for high school and college kids. Decent pay for individuals that fit into those age ranges. Great interaction with customers.

    Cons

    Very crafty at dodging overtime requirements. Seem to take advantage of their youth heavy employees. Twelve hour days were not uncommon at all.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more considerate about scheduling. Be way more considerate with hour requirements. Great job on the community feel while working there.

    I worked at Water Country USA part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    minimum wage pay with an increase if you get certified to sale alcohol

    Cons

    Made sure you did not work 40 hours a week, especially not over 40 hours. Scheduling was not the best. I lived an hour away, some times would get to work just to be told to go home because they had too many people.
