    I worked at Knott's Berry Farm part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    supervisors were really nice bc they're also college students, free tickets, pretty chill environment, can adjust pretty quickly

    Cons

    hot sometimes, the money machine breaks down sometimes, one rude coworker experience but whatever, a couple rude entitled customers but I barely remember their faces now, random coworkers wanting my shift asking me thru text. Initially I felt bad and pressured and gave them my shift, but later shut them down bc i need the money (Also ppl i never interacted with asking me ugh)
