Re: Cedar Point Employees
1. Generally you will be assigned a certain attraction when you are hired. However, this may change at any time. Depending on when you arrive to start work, if they need your help in another area or attraction, they may move you. While you will most likely have a "home" attraction, so to speak, it is likely you will be moved around, either temporarily, or permanently, at some point during the season based on staffing needs and performance.
2. You generally can not pick your ride or area as a new employee, although you may be given the opportunity to voice your interest in a certain attraction during your interview. However, it's luck of the draw as to what manager picks up your application. If an Area 1 manager gets your application, and you request an Area 2 ride, they may send your application to the Area 2 manager (which still doesn't guarantee you the attraction you requested), or they may just assign you where they so choose within their area.
3. This may change slightly with the addition of Windseeker, loss of Ocean Motion, Chaos, etc., however, at last I knew:
Area 1: Cad Cars and Planet Snoopy towards the front of the park, including Sky Ride.
Area 2: Scrambler and Dodgem back to Monster and Paddlewheel, not including Camp Snoopy. Including rides up to Millennium Force and Mantis.
Area 3: Camp Snoopy back through Frontiertown, including Shoot the Rapids.
4. No, no job is ever guaranteed.
5. In most cases, you'll be in the same area, but not necessarily the same ride. In some cases, returning employees may request certain attractions.
6. Yes, typically every half hour, although there are sometimes exceptions.
7. A lot depends on how good staffing is. Generally, work weeks are 6 days, with 1 day off.
