The work days at Six Flags were pretty normal. There are lots of great opportunities and great people. Six flags is a great place to work for teens to work and build up responsibility.

Guest Relations Representative (Former Employee) –  Township of Jackson, NJJuly 19, 2018
They do not have everything together. You are rarely told the same thing by different supervisors. The supervisors are not always informed. When you ask someone something and then get yelled at for doing your job and doing what you are told yo get written up for it.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

Hate it
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Agawam, MAJuly 19, 2018
I hated working for this company. Long commute for minimum wage. They did not take care of their employees. Long days in the sun with no water. It was tough.

It was okay at times.
Team Member/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Arlington, TXJuly 19, 2018
Honestly speaking, Six Flags Inc. wasn’t a pleasent time for me. Although I did meet many different people, it was kind of learn on your own experience. Six Flags did not do a good training and or have good management. The management in different departments were lazy & unfair to certain team members. Furthermore, different departments had many attitudes for no apparent reason along with some departments not doing a proper job.
Pros
They do have good benefits for there employees
Cons
The attitude, professional level, maturity is not there

Park Services (Former Employee) –  Largo, MDJuly 18, 2018
This was my first job. I love working there so many ppl and so many things to do. When it’s hot it’s hard to work but you will get through it. If you love outdoors this is the job for you

Retail Hostess (Current Employee) –  Concord, CAJuly 18, 2018
we have lots of benefits to the job and the job encourages us to be better. I've learned that taking your time to get something right is never wrong. our lunches are only $5 for all meals for employees.
Cons
we're not able to by from the stores when you clock out from work or even while your on the clock.

Interesting yet stressful place to work
team member (Current Employee) –  Jackson Township, NJJuly 18, 2018
A typical day at Six Flags as an employee varies based on what position and where in the park you work. For example, working in the rides department, your day can vary quite a lot. Roller coaster staff start earlier in the morning than the children's rides staff start. The coaster staff also have a larger list of daily duties that are required to be done before park opening. It can be stressful when a staff member is required to take on tasks outside of their job title and training. But otherwise, it is not a bad place to work. It is a great starter job for those who just need some job experience.
Pros
free parking and entry to the park for you and a friend
Cons
low staffing, angry guests

Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Bowie, MDJuly 18, 2018
clocking in in the morning, and then going to which ever location you are assigned. Then opening the store, depending on what time you get to the store

GAME HOST (Former Employee) –  Valencia, CAJuly 17, 2018
Six Flags is a good first job but don't expect to move up in the company much or get a major increase in pay. Job sight was disgusting and guests made it miserable.

It wasn't terrible
Warehouse team member (Former Employee) –  Queensbury, NYJuly 17, 2018
Started work at 6am and worked until 2pm or to 4pm if you agreed to. Warehouse members have to push carts with food and supplies that are ordered by each stand, preferably before 10am( the time the park opens). Somedays orders would be so big that we wouldn't be done until 1pm. After all orders were taken we would have to take orders over the phone and deliver them as soon as possible. On busy days we would have to take our mandatory lunches late.

Shallow Water Lifeguard (Former Employee) –  Gurnee, ILJuly 17, 2018
It was not really that fun of a job. Yeah, you get to save people but, it was very boring because you just stand there all day long. You get to be in the water sometimes but not always.
Pros
Cheaper lunch, discounted park food, get in free with a buddy if you use your ID, complemtary ticketd
Cons
Too long of a break, co-workers tend to be cliquey, etc

Don't get paid enough
RIDE OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Valencia, CAJuly 17, 2018
For as much stress that you have to deal with at Six Flags, the pay is definitely horrible. There is a lot of favoritism and high school politics there, too much drama. If you don't have cool people in your group, you will have a miserable time and the guests can feel that bad energy.
Pros
Meet different people
Cons
Not enough pay and the scheduling is horrible

Cashier and Food Prep (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJuly 16, 2018
Be prepared to walk 10 minutes from your arrival point to where you're stationed. The work is fine, once you get the hang of the map, where the important landmarks are located, what to do at your station and the occasional upset customer. Management is surprisingly kind, and works to help keep employees upbeat.
Pros
2 free tickets, and free parking if visiting for leisure
Cons
short lunches
