    Friendly environment for Pet lovers and animal care relationship.

    Even though the hourly salary is low, the professional and animal care environment make it worth. Love kids looking to learn about marine life.

    I worked at Sea World full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees treat each other like family, very friendly atmosphere. Employee cafe by the employee entrance is great. The managers are usually willing to work around your life - especially if you are working several jobs.

    Cons

    Long hours but if you communicate that you need the time off management will work something out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some upper management goes unchecked, politics affect quality.

    Pros

    Leaders are very helpful. They work around your schedule. It is a great place to work in, if you don't mind working with people constantly.

    Cons

    When you are closing store, it can get very hectic and stressful. You have to stock every stand. Not may hours if you are a seasonal. Not all managers are nice and friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be nicer....
