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

Team Lead (Current Employee)
Bowie, MD (US)

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

ProsMass-Management
Great opportunity to develop interpersonal relationship skills
Diverse work environment
Many opportunities for promotion
Several employee events
Fun and carefree employees

ConsOblivious favortism
Incredibly long work hours.

With this company, you either work 11-12 hour shifts, or you work 4 hour shifts. There is no middle ground, and your supervisor will decide how often they want you around. This is not company policy, but a bad management tactic used in several departments throughout the park.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease be more fair to your team members regarding the opportunity to LISTEN to your team members, as well as making them feel like they are cared about employees rather than a body in the park. On another hand, several of your employees ARE just bodies in the park and are not helpful whatsoever, (even to OTHER team members).

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
