      Pros

      Good for a first job Very good at teaching great customer service

      Cons

      Can be quite cliquey and managers and team leaders don't seem to want to integrate much with everyone, they pick favourites a lot Hours can be very long, sometimes over 12 hour working days Don't always get the recognition that people deserve Pay is not amazing for how much time and effort the job needs

      Pros

      Fantastic first job to learn the ropes excellent promotion opportunities fun colleagues Managers were in your shoes a few years ago so have a lot of respect for everyone very flexible with holidays and moving around departments fantastic HR team modern canteen and changing rooms Salary increase every year and each promotion is a nice increase This was my first job and I learnt so much, i was at university during my employment and it was just so flexible, i had the opportunity to be promoted as a restaurant manager but i chose to join a graduate programme instead, it was a tough choice but no regrets as i only have good memories here.

      Cons

      Not really any cons because the company is very well organised.

      Pros

      Legoland is a great first job as a teenager. Make a lot of friends considering 95% of the employees you're around are within 5 years of your age. Flexible with hours, will give you off what you need and are ALWAYS looking for people to pick up more shifts. Work at waterpark, almost everyone agrees that it's way better than the regular park.

      Cons

      Don't always get required breaks. Exhausted from lots of standing. Half the employees don't care about their job and are just there because their parents forced them to get a job.

      Perfect job for high school and college students. Flexible scheduling. A great place to have a first job. Many departments to choose from to work in.

      Low pay starting. Facilities for workers need improvement. Not a good place if you do not like children. Not a good place if you do not handle guest confrontation well.

      Pros

      Good benefits if you can get a full time position. Team work with fellow Co workers is good. Good company to work for if you are starting out with for a first job.

      Cons

      Work under a high stress environment for long periods with no breaks. Talked down to by leads who have no place managing employees. No understanding of you or your child gets sick will lose your job over it.
