Fun job

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
You see a lot of different people at the job. Job difficulty really depends on which ride you get placed on. Some rides like the climbing wall or coaster are basically hard labour jobs whereas other kids rides, you just stand and press a button.

Good experience

As a teenager it is one of the best jobs you can get during the summer. Hours are flexible managers are strict but friendly, and the majority of your co-workers will be teenagers aswell

Fun working with kids

Interacting with kids and helping kids/ parents onto the ride while ensuring everyone is properly buckled in. Ensuring that everyone reaches physical restrictions and requirements as well. The most difficult part of the job is letting kids/ parents know that their child does not meet the requirements/ restrictions of the ride and is unable to go on the ride.

it was a fun job. It was a summer part time job.

The duties mainly was to operate a ride in a safe and responsible manner, making sure it was safe for children and others to ride. It was enjoyable to watch people having fun.

Pros

Nice atmosphere to work.

Cons

wages are low

Fun workplace.

If you can handle screaming kids then this job is for you. This is an ideal first job. Training is great and the interviewing process is very well done. You will have a lot of fun during your lunch break if you go and see the attractions. You don't get to ride the rides for free and you have to stand outside which can suck. Shifts do get cancelled when it rains.

Pros

good hours, good pay for a first job, good training

Cons

some managers aren't helpful, have to work outside, hard to leave the rides department once you're in it

fun place to work with a lot of experience to gain

A typical day at work would include me going to the ride and letting the guests in after checking their passes and try to let the ride be as fun as it could be for the guest.

The PNE / Playland was a great experience for me and inspired me to look for more work after my contract was over for the season. I would refer this job to anyone out there, it is a great environment to be in!

Pros

different places for food all around, great hours

Cons

some customers can be confrontational
