Pros: I enjoy minimal overtime, park benefits (passes), vacation time
Cons: management, no communication, long hours (80 a week sometimes)
My job at Six Flags has taught me an incredible amount of information in the past 15 years, and for that I am grateful. I was promoted to Foreman in 2011/2012 and now am responsible for a crew of 4 men on a daily basis. This time of year (April and May) we begin set up of the rides- cleaning, setting up, troubleshooting, safety inspections, etc. During the off season we work on all of the equipment for rehab purposes. Management is very poor where I work, and it is ultimately the reason I seek a new place of employment. I see no room for further advancement, because of the management- despite my years spent at this park and this disappoints me. I really enjoy the men I work with and will have a very hard time leaving my current team, but I also have a wife and 2 children at home that I need to think of as well. It's because of them at home that I choose to seek a new employment.
