Fun work place under the wild eagle roller coaster
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Pigeon Forge, TNJune 13, 2015
The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to serve others and make new friends. The supervisor was awesome and very encouraging. Some days are hot, but it is a great experience.

Ok place to work
Ride Attendant (Current Employee), Pigeon Forge, TNJune 2, 2015
Pros: $2.50 meals and decent perks
Cons: Poor Pay and lack of value in employees
Used to be a great place to work. Due to outside pressure and some poor management decisions it has become a little harder to tolerate. It is however a great working environment if you are retired or still in school.

Fun place to work.
Attractions Host (Former Employee), Pigeon Forge, TNMay 14, 2015
Pros: Fun place, You get into most area attractions free.
Cons: The pay is low and the raises if they give them aren't much.
Dollywood is a great place to work for Young adults and retired seniors or people wanting only part time jobs. It's a great fun atmosphere to work in and most of the employees love their jobs. It is hard to leave because its like leaving family.

In 35 years worst place I have ever worked
Food preparer (Former Employee), Pigeon Forge, TNFebruary 15, 2015
Pros: people that work there
Cons: pay, morale, envrionment, depressing, they are cheap, stretch pennies like crazy
There are some great people at this place, but they work the living heck out of people for minimum wage basically. They make millions and pay pennies for the people that make them successful. Pitiful and unhappy people that work here. Down right will make you miserable seeing how the majority of the worker bees are treated and paid.

Food Preparer (Former Employee), Pigeon Forge, TNJanuary 3, 2015
Pros: happy people. friendly employees. fun place to work. medical care.
Cons: pay rate could be better. benefits offset some of that.
Dollywood is a family fun park with something for every one. Main objective is to make sure families enjoy the time spent on the facilities and make good memories. Worked with some of the best co-workers ever. Had experience working with international college age young people from various countries. Management cooperates with employees in trying to make schedules as compatible as possible for employees' needs. Good company to work for. Good benefits. Company hires many retirement age employees and works with them to schedule hours to coincide with their needs. Stresses good work habits and friendly employees.

Unreasonable amount of work for the pay
Seasonal Water Tester (Former Employee), Pigeon Forge, TNNovember 16, 2014
Pros: got into other places in the area for free. got to meet some good people.
Cons: blisters, dehydration, embarrassing wages, limited breaks.
Had to walk 8-10 miles a day on concrete, usually with wet shoes. Had to turn on massive pump motors while standing in water. No real breaks unless you were working with someone willing to relieve you. There some really good workers there. I feel bad that they are being taken advantage of.
DO NOT BE A WATER TESTER!!!

Life guard / Conductor/ Ride / Attendant (Former Employee), Water Park / TRAINOctober 3, 2014
Pros: seeing happy faces on the quests faces
Cons: knowing the problems and knowing nothing will be done
Though some of my work experience was good. the majority was poor. Water Park (Splash Country) outstanding Management team. Support and training was spot on. DOLLYWOOD not so good, Management needs to be more aware of what is going on with the employees.Safety is a big issue for employees as well as guests.

housekeeping (Former Employee), pigeon forge tnSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: discounts at the park and other attraction's
Cons: hardly get a break! and low pay!
It's a nice place but the pay sucks and the upper management does not care for employees and you work 8 10 hr shift and it's for regular time. Cleaned cabins and supervisor was not ever friendly and never answers her phone they have picks and the inspectors always finds something wrong and we had to work in heat and cold and come in for others and never get a Thank You! Need new supervisors and inspector's! Never enough towels or sheets and supervisors hiring their friends and they hang in laundry and still get paid while the rest of us work hard! And other housekeeper's don't drain hot tubs and it's OK? And no need to mention it cause supervisor's and inspector's don't hear it! Please management read this and check into it maybe there wouldn't be so much turn around in houskeepers if things would change! Need better management and inspector's!

Attractions attendant (Former Employee), Pigeon Forge, TNFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: a doctor on sight, and discounts on many attractions in the surrounding areas
Cons: poor working conditions, slim chance for advancement, and the low rate of pay.
This place was a theme park and it was full of games and other activities. Management was good and some co-workers were very supportive and hard working. Like my other jobs I have made some great friends along the way. Hardest part of the job was, there wasn't enough pay and the working conditions weren't so good.

Photographer/ Team Trainer (Current Employee), Pigeon Forge, TNAugust 22, 2013
I love working here and love working with all of the people that are on staff. I have made many new friends since i have been employed here. A typical day at work includes opening a ride location or being a photographer. If you work the rides the whole day is spent at that location and dealing customers.

A happy place to work
Candymaker (Former Employee), Pigeon Forge, TNJuly 30, 2013
Pros: i got to meet people from all over the globe every day
Cons: standing on your feet for 8 hours a day took some getting used to
I got to practice my skills at people pleasing while demonstrating an old time candy making process - passing out samples and making smiles - lots of guests returned each year to visit with me and expanding our memorable experiences
management left me alone to organize my day and crank out taffy
people who work there are required to put on a "happy" face every day
