Used to be a great place to work.
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Kennett Square , PaJune 8, 2018
Once was a great place to work. They changed things with new Management. Management will not stand behind their staff, and they want to please EVERYONE...that doesn't include staff.
Pros
Half priced meals, excellent bennies if you can get a full time spot.
Cons
Don't unpack your bags if you work full time, or for an extended period of time. Management never stands behind the staff.

Simple and peaceful place to work.
Seasonal Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Kennett Square, PAMarch 30, 2017
A typical work day depends on the position and season. On non-holiday days expect to be standing/patrolling/cycling/driving for a 9 to 14 hour shift. On holidays expect either constant action, strange lulls of peacefulness amongst thousands of people, or some interesting time in the lots.
The management is enjoyable and well established. You really get to know your bosses and vice versa.
It is a very laid back work environment, the most difficult thing to deal with is the very nature of the job. Sometimes you have good days where nothing happens at all. And sometimes you have bad days where there are incidents upon incidents to respond to.
However, the laid back atmosphere, great looking environment, and enjoyable company more than make up for any difficulties.
Pros
Enjoyable work. Great work enviroment. Friendly employees and visitors.
Cons
Work in all weather. Long shifts or oddly timed shifts are the norm.
