I have been working at Six Flags part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great people, Good hours in peek season, meet a lot of people, free soda for food service, relatively easy promotion

Cons

no hours in off season, they generally do not like to have you work over 6 hours unless they have a big event happening- Food service magic mountain, WAY understaffed

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have some empathy, It always seemed like you expected people to know exactly what to do with out telling them anything, IE if it is a slow day over all but my building was busy you would still expect me to send people home? or to another location. it was understaffed a lot!

    Raise your pay! We're saving lives here! Not flipping burgers at McDondalds! Hire more responsible workers, and older ones! A bunch of kids are working for you. Do you really think their doing that great of a job!?
