Pros: Prices for food for employees are cheap!!, Get 4 free admission tickets (6 if worked there for more than 1 season), occasional employee day where food is free, park is open just for you, etc
Cons: Supervisors will often make you take breaks/lunches very early into your shift, biased supervisors, (almost to the point where it is to be friends with them and you have an easy work life)
It could be better and it could be worse. The hours are good ONLY during the summer as the park is open the full week. I do not recommend the job until the summer seeing as you will only get weekends until then. If that is something, you'd like then work your way to the week, go right ahead. The job work is fairly easy. This is from someone that worked there for 2 seasons. Most of the time, it will feel kind of like you are being under appreciated. I say this and emphasize this from personal experience and from what co workers say. That is a huge factor in why I did not return to Great America. I could have been promoted, but I was at the wrong place and at the wrong time. (Of course, many would think of this as blaming the circumstances, but this is my honest review)
There are decent supervisors but will occasionally forget to their own work. I have seen them just sitting around and talking with co workers while the rest work. That is a huge bother to me.
Also the time of which you work is important. If you are placed to work after 12, you are out of luck as you will have the most work and most pressure. Those that are close to their supervisors will try to edge their way into getting the morning shift as it is very easy and laid back. I admit I did this a couple of times. I have also noticed how much co workers will suck up to supervisors inhales for good hours or good locations. (You will understand what locations means when you work there)
Pay was 8.00 in 2013, then 9.00 in 2014, then in the middle of 2015, July, will it raise to 10.00 but will stay at that price for a while.
The environment is fun, I must admit. I met so many awesome people and was the primary reason to return for the second season.
Sorry for the long report but I had to share this.
