Jobs at Six Flags

Sunday, April 6, 2003 8:54 PM
I am applying for a job at Six Flags St. Louis, I sent an online application a week ago. I got an automatic email back saying they will contact me if I meet their hiring criteria. Anyone know how long it takes if they were to call me back? I am real anxious about this.

Dude, I have some advice... skip all this online application junk and go see them in person. Then you'll know for sure whether you meet their criteria.

They will pick people from online applications AFTER they hire "walk-ins." You're better off just going to the park.

If SFSTL is like any other park I know, they are probably swamped right now, and real people are always than names on papers. I agree, go to the park in person.

I knew I should have never sent you that link. Any ways the tales of us taking little kids to vending for a "special treat" are overly exagerated. It only happend 5 times, and those involved have since been promoted, and are now stuck squeezing lemons.

Just find a blue tag and lcok your lips on his butt and proceed to keep them there ;) . I do have one tip, there is an employee restraunt, dont be like me and buy your food like the guest when I first started there. It only took me a month to find All Stars ("For the true stars of Sixflags"). Also please tell us were your working at when you get done with traning.

And one more thing, relax this will be the best job you will ever have, and they arnt gonna fire you. Well they might if you kill someone.

I worked at SFOG for a couple of seasons, so I'll just tell you a little bit about it.

They won't let you touch any ride without training, but don't worry... it's basic stuff that they teach you in a class... how to cross tracks, rider policies, misbehaving guests... and so on.

I'm not sure how SF STL does things, but the general rule is you start out as an attendent (checking restraints, crowd control, enforcing rider policies), and if you show initiative and you don't goof off, you'll be trained to run the ride you're at. Eventually you'll be tested and then you'll be certified to operate it.

You applied late in the season, so I'm not sure how much of a choice you'll have in selecting which ride you want to work at. The coasters may be full, but I am telling you, working a coaster is OVERRATED! I was a lead/foreman at several rides and I always had more fun at noncoaster rides. But, working at a coaster isn't bad. You'll probably be moved around or have the option to move to another ride anyway.

Good luck!
