Very fun workplace
Retail Department Team Member (Former Employee), Arlington, TXJuly 3, 2015
Working around people having fun in the theme park makes the job fun. There are some cons though, such as the heat, bugs, and low pay rate.

fun and friendly place.
Sales (Former Employee), Douglasville GAJune 30, 2015
A typical day at work was serving others food/drinks and keeping my work space clean. I learned how to manage money better and to be friendly to all my costumers even when there not happy. My co-works were very nice and helpful. The hardest part of my job was the walking around in the hot sun. The most enjoyable part of my job was serving and helping others.

Fun workplace, team members are awesome, friendly, and welcoming
Rides Operator (Former Employee), vallejo, caJune 30, 2015
Pros: free soda, discounted luches in breakroom, big breakrooms
Cons: hot outside, dealing with moody customers
Show up, check in and receive time receipt. Proceed to meeting place where you will get ride keys and clickers. Go back to ride and do safety runs on the ride to make sure it is working correctly. Clean and sanitize ride. Open ride when tasks are completed and check list (for opening or closing ride) is signed by manager. Say spiel and check height requirement. Allow adults and babies to ride only if acceptable in safety booklet. Clean ride when no passengers are present.
Co-workers are very friendly and proceed to help ensure your success. Hardest part of the job as being outside in the hot sun. Dealing with rude customers and parents can be a drag. Most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the expression on people's faces when they love the ride and seeing them come back. The "thank you's" and occasion hugs were also appreciated and make working at Six Flags such an enjoyable job.

Fun place to work
Seasonal Team Member (Current Employee), Township of Jackson, NJJune 26, 2015
Pros: Great work culture, fun perks
Cons: Limited benefits, non competitive wages
Six Flags is a great place to work for seasonal jobs. You learn a lot about customer service and time management. The best part of the job are that the people you work with day in and day out. You become a family and it is what drives everyone to come back season after season.

Lead Sales Associate / Key Holder (Former Employee), Township of Jackson, NJJune 25, 2015
6 Flags is a great summer job if thats all you need. For people like myself with children its hard to maintain that job because its not a legit all year round job.

Good, but wouldn't go back
Ride attendant (Former Employee), Austell, gaJune 25, 2015
Pros: Employee park benefits
Cons: not enough breaks
This is the only job that would hire me at first. Very good first job. Enjoyed getting into the park for free and the free ticket. They also had nights where only employees could ride in a certain section of the park for a couple hours. Only thing I hated other than the minimum wage pay was that you only get one break (30 minutes or 1 hour) and travel time was apart of it. No matter where your worked in the park, you'd have to use your 30 to walk to the break room. For me my break would end up being about 10-15 minutes because i had to walk so far.

Ride Operator (Former Employee), Largo, MDJune 25, 2015
Pros: Free park admission
Cons: Hours
Working at Six Flags America was a great experience for me. I learned how to operate rides and how rides operate.I also learned to work quickly yet efficiently. Working at an amusement part shows you how to work patiently with people of different races and orientation. This was both a great job and experience.

Typical Work Day
LIFEGUARD (Former Employee), Upper Marlboro, MDJune 22, 2015
Pros: Free park admission for you and a guest as long as your employed there, up to 6 guest tickets, discounts on merchandise and food
Cons: Hot, can be very stressful especially on holidays, decent pay
A typical day for a six flags lifeguard would be clocking in, getting to your assigned pool area to set up, and begin scanning your water until your shift end. Children can be difficult if they are disobedient and can cause problems for the safety of others. Can get VERY hot as the umbrellas can not shade you from the sun if your post is opposite of where the sun is in the sky, making it harder to watch your pool. Most of the co-workers are friendly and always lively especially before and after work. After the water park closes, lifeguards will always clean up the water park along with the normal cleaning crew to expedite the process, with exceptions on Fridays.

sales team member (Former Employee), Arlington,TXJune 20, 2015
It's fast paced at during the day and dies a bit nearing closing time.
Sometimes it may seem a lot because one employee is assigned to a store for them to manage on their own.

Enjoyable work with numerous customers selling goods and snacks.
sales associate (Former Employee), Valencia, CAJune 18, 2015
Pros: $1 dollar lunches, friendly people
Cons: no flexible hours really, supervisors could be less snobby and rude.
The work was heavy and definitely not what I expected, but the people who work there made up for it. Ultimately my school hours conflicted with my work schedule.

Pros: Free entry for employees at the amusement park

Games Lead (Former Employee), Valencia, CAJune 17, 2015
Pros: Great first job
Cons: Games Management team needs some work.
I started here. Six Flags really brought me out of my shell and made my transition into the working world much smoother.

Unfortunately, my department was on a steady decline (and from what I hear, is still declining almost 3 years later). Games management needs a LOT of help and interference from HR.
