    I have been working at Six Flags part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Get in for free! With a buddy pass!
    - Employee discounts
    - Safety-ride the rides before the park opens
    - Exit clearances
    - Meeting different people from different walks of life.

    Cons

    - 10 minute ONLY breaks
    - Some power-hungry leads
    - Favoritism! To get promoted to be a lead, you must be a kiss-ass to part-time supervisors. To get promoted to be a foreman and supervisor, you must be a kiss-ass to full-time supervisors.
    - Day-offs must be requested 3 months in advance...you also need to annoy your supervisors about it so they can finally get you off from your schedule.
    - Cleaning vomit (Disneyland will have to call custodian for this!)
    - Changing trash cans in the ride premises
    - Uniform is aweful
    - Drinking water is tainted and very dirty
    - .25 raise after a year
    - You won't get paid extra if you work on holidays...and even on grad nites. The only way you get extra money is if you go over your 10th hour, I believe.
    - Cheap facilities. Very embarrassing

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
