    Pros

    Exciting at first, You meet many great coworkers, you get free tickets, working Halloween horror night

    Pay was low, when it is not peak season you get no hours, overworked at times, worked outside so at times it was really hot

    I enjoyed the experience but the stress and harassment by guests was not worth minimum wage.

    Former Employee - Attractions Attendant in Orlando, FL

    I worked at Universal Studios full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I felt like a part of the Universal team. I enjoyed being a wizard and sharing my love of Harry Potter with guests from around the world. The environment was fast paced and if you were motivated you could move up the ladder fairly quickly. The perks include free admission into both parks, Sea World and Busch Gardens.

    Cons

    The stress was not worth the pay. My schedule was like a roller coaster; depending on the season I was either clocking in at 4 am for early park admission or clocking out at 2 am for special events and I never had the same days off. Make sure you're not hitting overtime because it's not approved. Most guests are pleasant or at least neutral but some won't hesitate to yell in your face or call you or other guests unacceptable derogatory names.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had no qualms with management but I suggest an increase of pay to offset the added stress of working in the the WWoHP.
