Freedom to work independently
You're always part of a team with rules to follow, so this isn't exactly a "work by yourself" kind of job.
Upward movement isn't always available, but you can usually move laterally if you really want a change of scenery.
Overall compensation for your work
Park operation jobs are usually minimum wage which can be hard to live off of unless you're willing to have multiple roommates.
Office / Work Environment
Many positions are outside and require long periods of standing if you're part of park operations.
When you have a good management staff it can be easy to get a schedule that will work with the rest of your life. Other times you may end up with shifts that are all over the schedule making it hard to have a life outside of work.
I'm sure there are areas where improvement is needed, but they've always shown a desire to help fix those issues as they arrive, so they get 5 stars here even if there are issues.
What I like about the company
The organization of the company as a whole really puts them ahead of some of the smaller businesses I've seen that operate in the tourism industry locally. You usually know your work schedule 2 weeks ahead of time, which allows for planning of general "real life" requirements, unlike many places I've heard of from friends.
Benefits-wise they also treat their employees great with discounts around the resort, free entrances, and so on, while still giving health care, 401K, and stock options.
What I dislike about the company
At times the scheduling hours available can be a little wonky (ending a work day at midnight only to be scheduled back in at 8am) but that doesn't occur very often. A higher pay rate for the hourly positions would be nice as well.
