    I have been working at Six Flags part-time

    Pros

    *Friendly co-workers.
    *Lots of hours during peak season (though this comes with a trade-off, see below).
    *Promotion from within.
    *Free admission, buddy pass for an additional friend each time you come after 40 hours of work each season, and free tickets to give to friends and family.
    *35% discount on food and merchandise when you visit the park.
    *Free admission to all other Six Flags parks, and non-Six Flags parks in the region.
    *Working outside in the sun (if you like that kind of thing).
    *Great management for the most part.
    *Being able to make a guest's day better is always nice.
    *Leadership experience looks good on a resume.
    *The season ends in late October or early November, which transitions nicely into finding a winter/Holiday job.
    *Easy to get time off, as long as you give the standard notice.
    *Free BBQ if you work on holidays.

    Cons

    *Rude guests.
    *Outside of a couple of departments, they do not pay time and a half as they are exempted by state law. While this can be a blessing, in that you can work 55 hours a week if you want to, it feels cruddy working that long at straight pay.
    *Can be sent home early on slow days. This mostly applies to Team Members, not supervisors.
    *No benefits, unless you are Full Time (which is very few people).
    *Difficult to become Full Time - lots of "lifers" are still considered seasonal, part time supervisors.
    *Low pay, and supervisors only make slightly more than Team Members with 10x the stress.
    *Pressure to cut, cut, cut labor all the time can impede on actually operating your area.
    *Lots of the workers are young kids who are either inexperienced or don't want to be working, which can make it difficult for everyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Pay more. Yes, I realize this isn't going to happen.
    *Recognize your employees more, even if it's non-monetary.
