Meet this requirement if you want to work at Six Flags

These are the current openings

Six Flags Atlanta Properties will hire approximately 3,000 employees by the end of 2016. The park has scores of openings all year long that span Six Flags Over Georgia, Hurricane Harbor and Six Flags White Water. From employment center supervisor to parking services and security, the organization is constantly looking for fresh faces. This month, Six Flags Over Georgia will begin hiring for Fright Fest, an attraction that will run from Sept. 24-Oct. 31. The park encourages all applicants to apply early and those who are deemed qualified will be contacted by park management for an on-site interview.

Here's how to qualify

All applicants must be at least 16 years of age and apply online

For seasonal team members, previous amusement park experience is not necessary, because on-the-job training is available for all positions throughout the year.

How to nail the interview

Six Flags team members interact with guests every day, whether it be on one of the park's exciting rides or a culinary food location or retail shop. With that in mind, employees are expected to always be friendly and enthusiastic. The park's human resources group stresses that lacking a smile is a no-go. First impressions mean everything, so the staff monitors potential employees from the first moment they walk through the doors for an interview. Recruiters will be keeping an eye out especially for those who wear big smiles and dress professionally throughout the entire evaluation process.
