I just recently moved to Texas from Detroit and I just wanted to know what are the pros & cons of working at Six Flags? Do they provide housing?
I don't think so. But I bet Six Flags could answer that housing question for you.

I think Cedar Point is the only amusement park that offers housing. But I think I heard Valleyfair started offering it as well, but those 2 parks are the same company.
Not sure if you're talking about San Antonio or Arlington, but Arlington only offers housing for employees in the international worker program.
The pros and cons are no different than any other job. Pros: if you interview well, you can probably work in whatever department you want as long as they need people, you can choose something that has you working outdoors, days go by fast especially when it's busy, there's plenty of times it doesn't feel like a real job. Cons: pay is at or slightly above minimum wage (but par for the course given the nature of the work), the heat can be pretty brutal in the summer if you're not used to it, the wild swings in weather we have here can result in similar wild swings in the number of hours you get (last summer it rained much of May and for a few weeks into June), the park runs pretty tight on labor so staffing often appears to be at a minimum in a lot of areas.
Six Flags Great Adventure does not offer housing per say, but I hear they have a wonderful hotel close by ...
Oh, wait ...

Or, 12 years. Whichever comes first.
