Fun place to work
Rides Team Lead & Trainer (Former Employee) –  Darien Center, NYApril 4, 2017
My supervisors were all very nice but sometimes were not very understanding. Many misunderstandings in scheduling often lead to workers getting unrightfully punished. Upper management could use some improvement.

Hostess/Cashier/Server (Former Employee) –  Darien, NYAugust 2, 2016
Darien Lake is a decent place to work, it was not my favorite work experience because as a 16 year old who wants to be with her friends working over 40 hours a week part time did not allow me to do that.
Pros
nice management, employees become good friends fast
Cons
long hours, long drive

Ride Operator (Former Employee) –  Darien Center, NYSeptember 8, 2015
Loved the atmosphere, almost forget you at work sometimes because you are having so much fun! Had a good time with co-workers, they made you feel like a team. Although the communication with team leads, was not the best. As they would change my hours without any notice, until I drove 35-45 minutes, just to turn around and go home!
Pros
Atmosphere
Cons
Scheduling

Sales Associate Lead (Current Employee) –  Darien Center, NYJune 15, 2015
I have learned what it takes to work in a sales department. There are many details that go into planning a company picnic. Sales works closely with the catering department. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting the guests and learning about their companies and families.

Standard lifeguarding with lots of drills
Lifeguard (Former Employee) –  Darien Center, NYMarch 25, 2015
I worked here three summers in a row and it was the same procedure every summer. You would watch the thousands of guests that came into the park, make sure all safety rules are being followed, and save anyone if need be. The head lifeguards perform safety audits everyday, some people get tested everyday.
Pros
Free tickets into the park
Cons
Short breaks, long hours

Fun place to take family
Ride operator (Former Employee) –  Darien Center, NYFebruary 5, 2015
Some days are long and hot but it was worth it just to see the families having fun and enjoying the time with use at darein lake. The mangment was great they were there to help when we needed the help. Everyone was happy and got along together. The hardest part of the job was when a child wasn't big enough to ride the ride. The best part of the jobs when all riders left happy.

Fun atmosphere in a fast paced enviroment
Technician (Former Employee) –  Darien Center, NYDecember 2, 2014
A typical work day consisted of running shows and diagnosing problems and finding solutions to them. I learned plenty of knowledge on sound equipment, such as rewiring a speaker system and installing a new soundboard. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the actors, but it becomes very manageable once a strong connection is made with them. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a show come together and watching all the long hours finally pay off.
