    I worked at Thorpe Park full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere to work in, you meet new people. Sometimes they let you go on the rides on certain days after the park is closed.

    Cons

    They treat their employees like slaves, pay is really low, make you work long hours especially since the Thorpe Park bus stops running at a certain time so you’ll find yourself wondering how you’re going to get yourself to the train station.

    Advice to Management

    Do better with your employees.
