I had a great Season. I can't wait to Return

Eureka, MO (US)

I have been working at Six Flags part-time for more than a year

ProsFlexible Scheduling
Great and Fun Management
Red Dot Reward program (Spot Bonus)

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Excellent company values on paper, but lack drastically as they are never enforced.
