    I worked at Universal Studios part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked as a seasonal cashier at one of the restaurants. Co-workers and superiors are incredibly friendly and helpful, especially if this is your first job like it was with me. You get some nice discounts and the occasional park time for yourself too!

    Cons

    You are always kept busy (not always a bad thing). You also have to deal with some weird and angry guests sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!
