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

    Pros

    You talk with tons of people from all over the world and over time you'll developed really good people skills
    You get good at handling and organizing money
    People watching
    You get to play the games occasionally
    Your co-workers are just as miserable as you are, and that breeds good comradery.
    You meet a lot of cool people from other countries.
    Discounted park food which is actually yummy.
    Great job for high school and college kids living in the area.

    Cons

    Lots of sunblock
    Lots of standing
    They are not flexible with schedules at all.
    You're outside 99% of the time, rain or shine.
    Extreme bouts of boredom.
    Long hours doing nothing
    Very little acknowledgment of good deeds (raking in huge amounts of cash on slow days) by management.
    Management (supervisors and up) sometimes is just mean to everyone.
