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

Pros

Easy
If you make it to Ticket Seller you can get up to a $5/hr pay bump + commission on the tickets you sell.
You are given a lot of chances to be late/ absent, as long as you call in the appropriate time before your shift.

Cons

High turnover.
You don't have a lot of freedom to make independent decisions in order to do your job better.
Commission really isn't very high. i.e. you get $1 for every $149 front-of-the-line-pass you sell, which is a little bit ridiculous.
Once you hit Ticket seller or Team lead there is not a whole lot of room for growth unless you would like to be working there for 10 years.
Unless you become a Golden Rate Ticket Seller, or its the summer/ Christmas, your hours will be nearly non-existent.

Advice to Management

Schedule employees based on ability, not on seniority.
