We'll be bumping this frequently guys.  PLEASE, help get the word out.  They really want the staff and the new Six Flags has committed to making things right this year.  If you were ever considering a job at ANY Six Flags park, 2007 is the year to do it!

A wah? Why do I need a job at Six Flags? I get paid $8.75 working at Staples. Im sure Six Flags would only start me at $7.15 with everyone else. So I would be losing money...I wouldnt mind running a coaster though.

Hmmm ? If I applied on Monday, When do you think I would start working?  Can you work two positions at Great Adventure?   Could I landscape during the day and operate a ride at night. How many hours can you work? Is it unlimited hours  or is there an O.T. limit.   

If people who work or worked at the park could help me that would be great.  What are the chances of starting out at 11 or 12 dollars an hour ..or do noobs always start off at $7 an hour?

Overlord, just to make sure you are aware, not all positions start that low.  And actually, I don't think any do now since they bumped them up.  For instance, positions in Entertainment start around 8 bucks and can go up quite a bit from there.  It really all depends on you proving yourself and having skills to do the job.  You can move up fairly quickly to where you are now or possibly even more.

I guess what I'm saying is that it doesn't hurt to check into it and ask :)

I believe Park Services starts at $8 an hour now too.  I was making $8.55 last summer as a lead and the frontline employees weren't making much less than I was.

Hannah, I will tell you right now that working doubles is murder.  But, if you want to do that, you would have to talk to your department.  It's preferred that if you work extra hours that you do it for your home department.

Here's the number for Human Resources: 732/928-2000 x2635

Give them a ring.  I'm sure they can answer any questions you have.

If you want the hours you can get them, especialy closer to the end of the summer. My week at SFGADV I worked doubles non-stop.

Eh I am all Ride Ops. Theres no way I could put up with people other then that. Plus I like the Air Conditioning in the summer time. :) And seeing that work is only 6 minutes away rather then 20. All in all, its more efficient for me to stay where I am.

For you all employees on here, I am curious as to how many miles you drive each way to go to work at GA?

So do you stay there for the week then Wheels?  Where do you stay?  What do you do during the week?

SFGAdv/SFA put some of us in international housing and some of us in a hotel. We worked a double at our park SFA and left for SFGAdv after we closed. Got trained on rides the next day and spent the week working rides if we were certified already if not they had them work line. I spent the week working KK.
