    Pros

    Good for seasonal/summer job, make some good friends and getting into the park for free is a bonus.

    Cons

    Understaffed and overworked, minimal to no work-life balance. Zero communication when it comes to anything. Incredibly WAY too stressful for a job that pays so little. Hard to advance up and even if you make it to a supervisor position, then what? There's nowhere to go after that.

    Pros

    The schedule is really flexible, you can basically make it what you want it to be as long as you are active about communicating it. They have good benefits (free tickets, discounts, employee only parties, etc). The people that you work with are usually friendly and help the day go by quicker.

    Cons

    The days can be long and boring on days where not many guests come, and can also be crazy when guests are flooding the park. The pay is decent, but not great.
