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

Pros

The most obvious benefits are the people you work with, the guests you interact with, and the opportunities employees have to experience animals they would only ever find in the wild, right here, in San Diego. Park Prep/Park Quality and Janitorial positions take a lot of work and dedication; a sharp-minded and productive employee's shift is almost guaranteed to end on a good note.

Cons

My position is seasonal, and while I have no qualms cleaning, I feel my real strengths are being overlooked.
Those searching for an easy summer job will be satisified; there are plenty opportunities to cut corners and slack off [much to the dismay of coworkers who WANT to work hard].

Advice to Management

Continue being as patient and helpful as you are now, it's appreciated. If, in the Park Quality warehouse, it'd be possible to get some colored markers [the simple ones primary schoolers use] available, that would be cool. It would make color-coding the map easier, which is otherwise black and white and difficult to read.

    I have been working at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is fair with great benefits. Free tickets and other employee events are a great bonus.

    Cons

    Most of the leadership has been around for a long time. While it is good for the stability of the company, it does mean that personal growth can be limited.

    Advice to Management

    With the transition to a publicly traded company, leadership shouldn't forget their roots and should continue to treat employees as the #1 priority.

    I worked at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free tickets to parks.

    Cons

    Inconsistent scheduling (different shift every day with different days off), low pay, no benefits other than park tickets unless your full term permanent. Impossible to get into a full time permanent position. Training was extremely lacking. Customer service skills also extremely lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. This used to be a great place to work but has gone down hill tremendously with new ownership and management changes.
