Greeter/Memberships Representative (Former Employee) says"Typical day as a greeter, your there a hour before the park opens, you go to your assigned post and wait, when the park opens you are then expected to stand at your post, greet, direction and offer information to the patrons. I learned how to diffuse hostile situations and how to pitch memberships. management was okay. You work as part of a team so even though there are over 200 people working during the summer season, everyone gets to know each other and work together to make the park the best place it can be. The hardest part was events cause you could end up 10 to 15 hrs a day, depending on how long it ran. the most enjoyable part was being able to explore the park for free on my off days"
