    The staff at Great America are easy going, kind, and great. I definitely recommend working at Great America for teens to get firsthand experience in the workforce. This was my first job as a teen and learned a lot about food services and customer services. Many of the skills you learn in this job are transferrable and could be applied in other jobs such as retail and food services. In the job you must be a positive person, outgoing, and interact with guests in the park. Best summer job and you're able to meet new people!
