Exciting workplace but could improve
Ride operator (Current Employee), Arlington, TXJuly 17, 2014
Pros: fun workplace and great co-workers
Cons: i wish to not discuss the problems with six flags
This is a good beginner's job when you are sixteen and seventeen years of age but when you get to be in your twenties it just doesn't work. I have great people I work with and reward benefits when I am doing a great job. Unfortunately like all companies there could be some improvements.

Amusement and Recreation Attendant (Former Employee), Bowie, MDJuly 10, 2014
Pros: watching visitors, especially children, have fun at the park.
Cons: working in the hot sun for hours
A typical day at work would be to sell tickets and collect fees from customers, direct patrons to rides, seats, or attractions, monitor activities to ensure adherence to rules and safety procedures, or arrange for the removal of unruly patrons, provide information about facilities, entertainment options, and rules and regulations, fasten safety devices – more... for patrons, or provide them with directions for fastening devices. There was good management at the park, managers made sure everything was going accordingly. I had amazing co-workers which made for great team work. The hardest part of the job was working in the hot sun for hours. The most enjoyable part of the job were watching visitors have fun and enjoy themselves. – less

Fun work environment. LP way too paranoid for a simple job.
Game Room Attendant, Host, Game Tech (Former Employee), Eureka, MOJuly 8, 2014
Pros: employee lunches and sodas very reasonably priced.
Cons: weather, obnoxious customers, paranoid management.
I worked at the Axxes arcade at Six Flags during the 2013 season. About halfway through the season from our original group of five, when it went to only weekends, only my boss and I were there to run the place. Open to close Saturday, Sunday and Monday. During the next to last weekend of the season, the hours dropped, the weather started getting a lot – more... colder and my boss was getting crazy trying to hustle me out of there at as close to the closing time as possible.(Not to mention getting the money for change when the park opened and opening the other arcade, as well as closing the arcade and turning in change at the end of the day was adding an hour + onto my workday that I WASNT getting paid for.)

One evening at the end of my shift, I had two days left in the season to work and was getting about 11.5 hours a week. I was called and told to get out of there and clock out as fast as I could. I did as told taking my cash directly from my apron and putting it in the bank bag without counting it. (They said it was part of the cash handling policy. Other places I ALWAYS counted down my closing monies.) and closed the other arcade, and went to cash handling.

The next morning I get a call from my supervisor who was losing his mind. I was $40. dollars short! I told him to check the apron I wore the previous night. He told me LP already checked it, and I had to come in a half hour early to meet with them. (On my time, of course!) We hung up, and five minutes later he called back. LP had looked in the wrong apron, and the $40 WAS in the apron I wore the previous night. Just human error from being pressured to get out of there a few seconds early. Then I was told I would have to go through cash handling training. FOR WHAT? I had made thousands of transactions with no problem through the season with no problem. Now I have to be instructed on how to handle cash with two days left in the season? (Not to mention, on my time.) I decided I had enough, and the job crossed the line as to being worth it. I really wanted to finish the season, but I couldn't take any more of the intense stress my boss turned a relatively simple job into. I texted him and let him know I wouldn't be returning. And I had the toughest time getting my final check because he wanted to see me in person. At the time, seeing me in person would have been a very bad idea. That's why I took my uniform shirts and ID to HR. And he still tried to screw with my final pay. Corporate bullying at its finest. – less

Mostly a job for high school kids
Ride Attendant (Former Employee), Austell, GAJuly 5, 2014
When I worked at Six Flags, there was no set schedule in place for me, I didn't really interact with pretty much anyone there except for a couple of people because I spent more time learning about how the rides worked. The most I did the entire time working there was working the go-cart track, and even then it wasn't entirely that busy. After a few – more... weeks of being on the roster, I was let go because plain and simple, they didn't have anything for me to do, which I understood because as I said in the title, it's a job for high school kids who wanna earn a little extra money, not for someone like me who wants to make money. – less

Busy but fun place to work
Lead/Hostess (Former Employee), Gurnee, ILJuly 4, 2014
Pros: free park entry, discounted passes, employee ride nights
Cons: strict dress code, unreliable employees
Working at Six Flags has its ups and downs. They guarantee 40 hours a week of work and allow you free parking and access to the park. Six Flags is almost always very busy so be prepared to work in a fast paced environment and dealing with a wide variety of guests. Workers come and go so quickly so if you're looking to be promoted you need to prove that – more... you are here to stay. – less

Hot Summer Fun!
Seasonal (Former Employee), Township of Jackson, NJJuly 4, 2014
Pros: fun games
Cons: the summer heat
The work day started off with counting your money apron. You had to have $250 at all times. Then it was figuring out where I was to be stationed. this theme park had different sections. You had to check in with the office people to find out where you had to be sectioned. Then from then on you got to your station and spoke constantly over a microphone – more... to get people to come play your game(s.) I learned how to run a game stand. I also learned how to inventory prizes and fill out forms if they were damaged. My co-workers changed from day to day so I never saw the same person twice unless they were a manager. The hardest part about the job was finding someone to help cover you station when in need of the restroom. it would be another twenty minutes before you could go. The most enjoyable part of the game was playing the game for free. even though if you "Won" the game you didn't get anything from it. – less

First day at work
Ride Operator (Current Employee), Valencia, CAJuly 3, 2014
Pros: half price lunches
Cons: long walks take time off breaks
The first day at work is was during summer when I got hired. When I clocked in for work it was an opening shift. I didn't know actually what to do at work so I was waiting around for a lead or supervisor to tell me what I need to do before the park opens. So I was told to something that I didn't know what to do. So I followed what he told me to do and – more... I did it right. And I got some brownie points for it on the first day. The hardest part of my job is to be aware at all times but I got it down within a week or two. But through the hard days of work it pays it off really well. The best enjoyable part of my job is to meet new people. The management was good how to put their people where they want to but them if they think is right. – less

Busy and interesting work place
Ride Operator (Former Employee), Agawam, MAJuly 2, 2014
A typical work dy was to work a minimum 12 hour shift and go home. I learned how to work in all sorts of weather and how to handle all kinds of different stress including the general population. My co-workers were all friendly and we all worked well togather. The hardest part of my job was the weather, when it was bad we either didn't work or shut rides – more... down and we had to wait. The most enjoyable part was the people I worked with. – less
