Great summer short job

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I would work as Park service , the co workers are the best part. You develop a close relationship, it’s beneficial since you really only got each other. You help one another .. you are thrown right away without training

Definitely a good intro to guest service

This was my first job and it definitely helped me in obtaining guest service skills. Was easy to promote as long as you knew what you were doing. However if you weren’t good at your job it was clear that management didn’t like you and other coworkers made it obvious as well

Pros

Training, working in a team

Cons

Hot, long shifts, management didn’t usually back you

Full of back stabbing immature people.

No communication between anyone, your coworkers will throw you under the bus any chance they get.its like high school.your bosses always assume you are screwing around no matter how hard you work. They can't find their way out of a paper bag.

Pros

If you're a screw up you move up.

Cons

That screw up becomes your boss

For night services the managers and supervisor are extremely rude

They wouldn’t give me my schedule, they talked to me like im a child, and they give you the hurry up gtfo of here face, don’t care about family emergencies, such as a grandparent being in the hospital with a bad heart, overall I regret applying for night services and working for the three higher ups, they are also very harsh on new employees, besides them the coworkers are great, but the management just makes everything miserable and makes you regret things and constantly makes you think if you made the right decision

Great Job for Teenagers

Very easy job for anyone with no work experience. Such a fun environment since you’re in a amusement park and definitely great benefits. Only thing that sucks are the hours when its slow season

Pros

Free Tickets & discount food

Cons

No hours

Its alright.

It could be better. Park services is a pretty basic but really boring job since all you do is walk around an area and pick up after people. And just give them directions. The management/supervisors in the department are kind of hard to talk to, but they will accommodate if you have any personal issues. Other than that, the job lowkey sucks.

It ok

It was a nice starting job and I gained a lot of experience working there. Definitely not a long term job. Knott’s is a good first job if you’re good at managing stress.

Interesting

Good place, took me a while to get on the job and get a schedule, orientation wasn’t too bad either. Forms were easy to fill out and interview was easy going and non stressful

Friendly environment

Friendly environment but not too many growth opportunities. Management is can also be very helpful. I enjoy working here and I also have fun and friendly co-workers

Better place that Disneyland overall, however still just an entry-level customer service job.

As someone who worked both Knotts and Disney, I can say overall I prefer Knotts. I get paid slightly more here as a new hire then I did after 6 year's experience at Disney, and I appreciate the paid walk time to and from my car.They do pretty much suck at communication and it's learn-as-you-go, so if you prefer to have a trainer assigned to you then Disney is much better in that aspect. By sucking at communication, I mean that it took me a full week to recognize who my managers are since no one introduced themselves to me, and I've been here a few months and still don't fully understand the call out system or how to trade shifts. But everyone here so far are very nice and it's more lenient than Disneyland is. As a part timer I get 5 guest passes per quarter and free entry into the park with no blockout dates, which is nice. In the end, it's another customer service job so don't expect too much. It's not too hard, they expect you to learn as-you-go but don't knock you for needing help.

Pros

Paid walk to and from your car, Guest passes each quarter for any Cedar Fair Park+ free park entry for associates, Yearly associate party, Nice people, fairly chill

Cons

Lack of communication

Fun if you’re there for a short period of time

It’s fun if you work seasonly such as the summer and that’s it. The work environment was stressful since it was hot and you are outside all day but if that’s ok with you then I would go for it.

Fun place to work with benefits

It was fun working at Knott's Berry Farm. There are quite a few perks that are pretty cool like employee discounts and free entry. The place you start working at might be as a food associate or as a operator.

Pros

There own cafeteria for employees

Cons

Started out a low hours

Average minimum wage job

Coworkers are always a pleasure to work with. Supervisors are friendly and supportive. Guests can be a handful but they are not too bad. Great company to work at as a minimum wage job.

Pros

Quarterly Knott's Tickets

Ride operator

It was fun…repetitive, and you have to be able to pay attention to multiple things. I worked in snoopy and it was great but then got cross trained to hang time and it was a lot to handle and super fast paced. Be honest and if you can’t do the job just asked to switch departments and they will help you with the process.

Coworkers made the job bearable

Good entry level job overall but management lacked communication and scheduling matters weren’t always handled in the best way. The pay is right at about minimum wage and you are often asked to do more work that what you are compensated for.

Fun place to work at.

Loved working here but HR sucks at their job. They did me dirty! But everything else staff and managers so very welcoming. Hotel Housekeeping Managers are very friendly and help you and guide you to your best!

Great People but stressful environment

To most, working at Knott's is like working at a highschool. If you make friends, the shifts will go by so quickly. On busy days, guests can be rowdy and the atmosphere can become so stressful.

Pros

Flexible schedule, great co-workers

Cons

Stressful, boring and old after a while
