Coasterbuzzer Jobs

As the theme park season picks up full speed, many of us seek employment at our favorite parks. This topic is simple : Where do you work now, and if you could switch jobs, which theme park would you want to work at?

Heck, I work at Chuck E. Cheese...but I'd really like to work at Carowinds.

I work for the Vindicator(a newspaper company in Youngstown). It sucks but at least it gives me money for amusement parks. I would like to work at either Cedar Point or Six Flags Magic Mountain. Mainly I'd like to be a ride op but just working at those parks would be cool.

I went to Carowinds' job fair and was going to apply, but my summer schedule is so full that I wouldn't be able to work much, so I probably wouldn't even be hired. Maybe next year.

I work at COSI (a science museum in Columbus). My dream job would be a designer for new attractions (buildings, pathways, theming, etc.) at either PKI or WDW. A huge difference is setting but I love both places. Although it would be incredible to design coasters, my math skills are too sub-standard for that so that aint gonna happen. :)

If a theme park payed me anywhere near what I am getting paid now I would work there in a New York minute. That being said, I dont think it will ever happen :)

I work at VF. I want to stay working there for a career, but I don't know if I'll get a better job at some other place in the Twin Cities. It kind of depends on where I can get a job when I'm done with college next year.

I am Information Technology Training Manager. I manage the IT training program and conduct classes in all levels of Microsoft Office, and do 2nd level support for MS Office problems here.

A summer or two at CP would definitely be awesome, as well as working for WDW any time. I'd have a blast being the guy who gives the safety instructions. I teach a lot, and I always inject some humor and sarcasm into my classes, which I'd defintely do with announcing as well.

TiggerMan, didn't realize you worked in my office...;). I do tech support mainly, but due to the level of technological incompetence in the medical field, I also end up doing an enormous amount of MS Office training and web training....

Since I have to check for our users to make sure the Internet is "up", ROFLMAO....I end up checking in here just to make sure....;). Seriously, the only job in the industry I would really want is to serve as a "theming consultant" on new and existing rides....since I can't even play the radio, rock star is out of the question....

OK, since everyone is saying what they do and I didnt say earlier, I am Manager of Web Resource Development at a company that makes software for day to day pharmacy operations. Now you all know.

I would chuck it all and work in the amusement industry if I won the lottery or the amusement industry could promise me buku bucks. Like the guy from Office Space, I think I would like some mindless job. Put me on the speaker saying the same thing over and over all day on a coaster :)

I'm in my third year and fifth job in the wireless communications industry. It seems that I've gotten some kind of rep as a turnaround expert, so I keep getting headhunted. It's a drag on some levels, because I had to quit my band and I work more weekends than I would like.

If I could work at any park, I'd work as an Imagineer at Disney. I was a Disney nut long before I was a coaster enthusiast-I live in Ohio and this is my first year in six years that I didn't pony up $400+ for an annual WDW pass.
