I worked at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment full-time (More than a year)
Fun benefits like free admission to the park and Universal. Lots of employee events and service projects. Lots of opportunities for growing with the company. They really like hiring within the company so if you start small you can get into supervisor positions.
Long hours in sometimes challenging environments. Dealing with irate guests. Very strict and unforgiving safety policies. In some positions you won't know your schedule until the week before leading to work/life balance issues.
I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment (San Antonio, TX) in January 2017.
They have Saturday auditions. Set times for different talents. And an interview before with HR. I showed up and applied using the computers they had at the HR department. I waited and was taken with 2 other auditoners to learn a basic dance (dance audition). The instructor was awesome. Very quick. After, I waited and then was called to sing in a room for 2 entertainment directors. They had an aux chord for me to plug in my phone. They don't have a pianist, must be electronic aux for the music. They loved it and were very polite. I then read an aside for a comedic actor position. They said they would let me know within a week or two if I was hired. Still waiting for a response but it's only been a couple of days. Pretty confident I got the job!
