Ride Training starts the first week of March at Carowinds before the season starts. I went to college 120 miles away from the park, home was 80 miles from the park and never had a problem getting to work on time. 2 hours from college to work, 1 and half from work to home afterwards. Got up Monday morning drove back to college.
I'm so confused. You said they need more training. I asked when they would do that. You said on weekends, like back when you trained. So that training you received in 2006 was good enough, but not what they offer now? I would have assumed they train the same now, if not more, than they did in 2006.
I never said they need more training, I just stated that they do training in the offseason, that training is done on weekends between the first week of March and Opening Weekend.
I also went into a little detail about what seasonal employment mean and responded to your comment about employees living hours away.
Operator training is part of the process of getting a ride past NC State Inspection, rides have to be tested atleast 100 cycles in normal operation to pass NC Inspection and the state looks like training records. Employees that aren't present for the intial training process are trained on weekends during Park operations until the park reaches daily operations in which they are trained on the rides on any day.
Furthermore every ride op is subject to Blood Borne Pathogen training which for me was done by January or February as part of employee orientation that season.
