      Negative Outlook

      I worked at Wet ‘n Wild full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Get in for free, discounted on some things and food,

      Cons

      Pay is horrible at $9.25 for standing the hot sun while dealing with annoying guest who doesn’t wanna listen to the rules. No breaks from 10:30 am- 3:30 pm or 4:00 pm. Management doesn’t care if your sick or dying . They will make you work in the hot sun.

      Advice to Management

      Get a new management . Horrible management

      I have been working at Wet ‘n Wild part-time

      Pros

      The ONLY good thing about working here is the people, most of them are really easy to get along with and very inviting.

      Cons

      Unless you want to work in a sweat shop with some really cool people don't work here. Im a lifeguard and I have noticed the company is very cheap in how they pay and run things and really doesn't care about their employees (lifeguards at least). Dont work here you might get stuck in the blak hole that seems to keep people working here
