    Current Employee - Cook in San Antonio, TX
    Current Employee - Cook in San Antonio, TX

    I have been working at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Seaworld is a good place to work. We use teamwork to get tasks accomplished, so both employees and guests can have a wonderful experience. Management is helpful and gives you everything you need. There are times where the work is fast-paced, but with time, you learn to keep up. The best part about working for Seaworld is free access to the park with your employee badge - along with the complimentary one-day tickets. I always take my family, and we have a blast!

    Cons

    There are times where we are expected to work long hours when employees call in. There were some instances where I personally was unable to take my lunch break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What's important for leadership to consider is our work/life balance. While we are here at work to accomplish a goal of world-class guest service, leadership should always consider the needs of employees outside of work. Fair treatment in terms of hours worked and breaks given - is a must.
