SFGadv Training For Movie World?

Sunday, August 26, 2001 11:53 AM
Over the entire season I've noticed greatly improved operations at SFGadv. and hope it continues into the off season and the following years. I realized this past week that all the friendly new staff seem to have European accents and very German names. I wonder if the staff is training for the opening of Warner Movie World. I only hope that when these employees return to their home park we are not left with the usual sub-standard operations of years gone by. Does anyone know if training is what's happening??

Almost everything has improved. The cleanliness of the park, the cordial attitude(which in the past was rude at best), the speed of dispatch on all rides, the security (ie. crackdown on line jumping), the friendly atmosphere and level of service in food and retail shops, and most noticeably staff that actually say Hi and truly seem to care how your visit is going.

I think they do alot of international recruiting. Many moons ago when I applied to be a ride-op I had to wait because the HR rep was in Europe doing recruiting.

Antuan is correct.They do alot of international recruiting and, on Friday, I read an article in the Asbury Park Press that said they recruit internationally because, They don't go back to school until October so, there is less of a loss of employees towards the end of the season.They also hire seniors when the college kids here in the states go back to school.If anyone else would like to read the article, If you have a saturday press lying around look in the people section of the paper.

Rod,here is the piece from the Asbury Park Press..

Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson has hired nearly 500 college students from abroad, most of whom don't have to return to school until late September or October, public relations manager Kristin Kocher said. In addition, the park will be bringing back many of its 50-and-older employees for Labor Day and beyond.
"We're lucky because many of our older employees like to work the 'shoulder' seasons -- early spring and fall," Kocher explained. "And because our international students don't have a Labor Day school deadline like students here, they're able to work in the park, which goes to weekends-only operations after Labor Day."
Being able to work into the fall is a plus, said 23-year-old Peter Szanto of Slovakia.
"It means I'll be able to bring home more money," he said with a grin. "But then, when I go back, I have to go to school. That's not as good."
