Admissions Department (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – April 1, 2018
I really enjoyed working at Wild Adventures Theme Park. My long days there were really worth my time. Seeing and meeting people from different places made my day! I rarely had any rude customers in my department. I made sure I always had a good attitude and make a great transaction without any problems. My manager did a fantastic job training me at the Turnstiles (front gate), Tollbooth (parking pay), Kiosk (ticket booth), and Season pass (Making season passes. I think the hardest part about working at Wild adventures was the summer heat, but I made sure I was always hydrated. Last but not least seeing kids and their loved ones smiled is what I loved most!
Attractions Attendant (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – February 22, 2018
The job itself is super easy but everything else is awful. You'll call for a bathroom break and it could be a good hour or so before you receive one IF you even do. Expected to work 12 hour shifts with only a 45 minute break which goes by too fast since you aren't allowed to be seen eating by guests and you have to take your meal all the way to the breakroom that's located in the front of the park. They work on a point system and aren't flexible with scheduling. This job mostly consists of kids right out of high school or college kids and are always understaffed. Weather conditions can also be pretty harsh. Minimum wage and supervisors are lazy and have favorites.
free admissions to park, easy job
short breaks, bad pay, long hours, harsh weather, lazy and bias management

I honestly liked this job, however, management was not the best. Scheduling as confusing, especially when management picked who got to go home and when. Other than that, the job was fun and is great for teens who are looking for their first jobs.
Enjoyable but need to be aware at all times for safety hazards
Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – January 24, 2018
Management was the best part of the job. They were fun, easy to talk too, and understanding of personal needs. The culture of the place made it a warm place to work at, and every employee did their job well. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the sun, and maintaining your health while standing there for hours of the day.
Merchandise Associate (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – January 15, 2018
The people who work there don’t know if you are new to the work place so they aren’t friendly or introduce themselves. When you are working with a partner is the only time you get to know a coworker other than that your by yourself most of the time you are working.
Good for a summer job, or teens first job, you cannot make a living from this job unless you are a manager
There are no pay raises, if you say yes to working over time they only pay you time and a half for it (only on holidays), no room for promotions, pay is terrible ($7.25 hourly)
I like Wild Adventures but there's some major downfalls about it one of the OIC try their best to cut my throat this season in the attraction and the Paychex was kind of really low boost up that cash to $9hr long hours in the sun and low pay doesn't pay the bills I love my supervisor she was very nice and funny met a lot of good and horrible people and meant a lot of misbehavior kids that gives a rude mouth Towards you in the attractions by just saying the rules overall the supervisors should start working on that lack of communications especially the new ones the trainers the trainers are alright but there's still a few bad apples my mother had a bad season what she stated when it comes down to the trainers on training you to how to run the ride she stated that there was a lot of favoritism what their supervisors and trainers were doing overall not bad place to work if you looking to earn a little cash
Food and Beverage (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – January 4, 2018
It was fine at most parts working there but no one cared about you individually except your fellow co-workers. It was very demanding and completely wasn't worth the stress it puts on you daily especially at the low pay rate you are on.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – December 10, 2017
I learned that you have to be careful of who to trust. Some of management is nice and relatable but most don't care and will do stuff to make you want to walk out on the job. Very diverse with people from everywhere coming to work. The hardest part of the job is trying to achieve everybody needs. The most enjoyable part is meeting the new people you encounter everyday.
employment 30% and free tickets for friends and family
45 minutes breaks and management accuse you of something you didn't do.
MARKETING COORDIANTOR (Current Employee) – Valdosta, GA – August 31, 2017
If you are satisfactory, this is the place for you. However if you are great at your job and take value in what you do this is not the place for you.
Wild Adventures has poor communication between departments. They are the home for meetings and no action. And most importantly, Wild Adventures keeps incompetent people around and sifts important things from their plate to the plates of the rock stars, causing the good workers to get overloaded and burned out.
Admissions/Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) – Valdosta, GA – July 20, 2017
i really liked working at wild adventures because the customers and the people i've worked with were very diverse and friendly to work with. Everday you would meet new people you would have the opportunity to interact with.
