I have been working at Six Flags part-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I worked at Six Flags part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I was able to get great training in retail and customer service. I was also able to get experience as a retail manager before I was 18. It was a busy environment, which taught me how to work with others to get things done quickly. You get into the park free and there are a lot of team member parties.

    Cons

    Management is young and can be petty and unprofessional. There is a lot of pressure if you are a young lead/supervisor. The pay is low for all that you do and you have to work long hours (if you are a lead).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't talk down to those who are working under you and stay professional.
