Excellent company values on paper, but lack drastically as they are never enforced.

Pros

Mass-Management
Great opportunity to develop interpersonal relationship skills
Diverse work environment
Many opportunities for promotion
Several employee events
Fun and carefree employees

Cons

Oblivious favortism
Incredibly long work hours.

With this company, you either work 11-12 hour shifts, or you work 4 hour shifts. There is no middle ground, and your supervisor will decide how often they want you around. This is not company policy, but a bad management tactic used in several departments throughout the park.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please be more fair to your team members regarding the opportunity to LISTEN to your team members, as well as making them feel like they are cared about employees rather than a body in the park. On another hand, several of your employees ARE just bodies in the park and are not helpful whatsoever, (even to OTHER team members).

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and not much more.

    Cons

    Seasonal work, meager pay, infighting, strong nepotism. This company hesitates to fire anyone who isn't a seasonal employee. The divide between seasonal and full time is so great it affects the company creating an us vs. them attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to acquire and retain quality employee's you need to pay for them. Your pay structure is horrid and your leadership weak and ineffective. Your company is full of people who never left so you promote them because of tenure.
