Featured Review

Former Contractor - Desktop Support Engineer

I worked at TIAA

Pros

Great benefits and great work environment

Cons

Not much room for growth

Former Employee - Lead

I worked at Carowinds part-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Free entry into the park, discounts, some incentives

Cons

Low pay, cronyism, favoritism, managers/supervisors push political views on employees and if you don't agree you're alienated, guests are allowed to treat employees like dirt

Advice to Management

Better training for managers and supervisors. Don't allow spouses or significant others to work directly together. Keep politics and political views out of how management decides who they like and... who are no longer useful. Utilize and listen to experienced employees instead of tossing them out like yesterday's garbage. Yes all of these things happen at this park.
