I have been working at Six Flags part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible Scheduling Great and Fun Management Red Dot Reward program (Spot Bonus) Free Admission into Park + Comp Tickets/Free Season Pass Employee Discount Co-Workers and crew commendatory Novelty of working in a theme park I get paid to push buttons Meet great People In-Depth Training Fast Paced Work Team Member Parties Weekly Pay Checks (every Friday) Job is overall fun You get to ride your ride before the park opens Ample Hours

Cons

-Job is very repetitive Weather is not wonderful Unpaid Breaks Paid Uniforms (but they are not expensive) Paid only minimum wage (Ride operators get paid the least amount of money) job is seasonal - training begins in March and season ends in late October A single shift is too short, and a double shift is too long Park Hours are not consistent Frequently stay past end of shift (but you do get paid extra) Very easy to get in trouble for safety errors that are some times beyond my control High Turnover of staff throughout season Job is sometimes tiring Breaks are given at poor times (either right when your shift starts, or when it is about to end)

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. Just train your leads and supervisors to be more organized.

    I have been working at Six Flags part-time (More than a year)

    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 Management

    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).

    I have been working at Six Flags part-time (More than a year)

    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 Management

    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.
