    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Worlds of Fun full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Super fun to see guests smile, fun to work during haunt season, free admission, get to ride the roller coaster three times a day for test rides

    Cons

    Co workers were cliquey and not welcoming of new workers, management was the same way, kids running the rides with no adults, supervisors hardly around, long hours, and if you denied the OT they would punish you by cutting your hours more, and guilt trip you, the pay was 7.35 an hour, no raises unless you worked there for years and years. If you were running Zulu you had to call someone from another department over to run your ride and sometimes they would take forever so you have to hold it for sometimes even an hour before someone came over to run it for you and then you had to run to the bathroom that was like a 10 minute run away.
