    Pros

    Community conscience. Tried to give employees fair benefits. Wanted to strive to be the best and would spend resources if needed.

    Cons

    Could be a boys club at times and conservative. Long hours on the hospitality end.

    Pros

    Fun culture, lots of fun interacting with guests, I got to push the same buttons every day, so I didn't have to worry about screwing up. Plus, I got to hear myself on the microphone! "Welcome to the Hersheypark Fender Bender"!

    Cons

    Lots of vomit to clean up, some guest were just having bad days, and a lot of guest just asked plain stupid questions like "where's the nearest bathroom?" Try answering that question 20 times in 1 shift!

    Advice to Management

    Provide uniforms with better sun protection, rotate rides more often, provide better (healthier) canteen foods, more after hour activites

    Pros

    Free tickets and entry to the park, make a lot of awesome friends, growth opportunities are easy and frequent, friendly staff, not a terribly difficult job

    Cons

    management could use additional training on HR, there's a big lack of professionalism in this department, occasional rude guests, long hours without the permission of the employees

    Advice to Management

    Don't choose obvious favorites among employees, don't be rude or snarky when an employee asks a question, don't talk about certain employees behind their backs. This management could definitely use some additional HR training.

    Pros

    The Lodge was a good work environment, I had approachable managers, very low stress at work, and the pay was fair for the work

    Cons

    Organization and restocking my area could have been smoother. The distance between my station and the managers' office made it difficult to get help during busier times

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

  11. Don't get in trouble.

    Pros

    You meet good friends, free admission to the park and some other parks in he region.

    Cons

    If you get into trouble, they don't listen to your side of the story, you just get punished and thats the end of it. That sucks and they need to cut that out!!!!!
