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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    - sometimes you get little goodies here and there
    - employee discount, free tickets for family and friends

    Cons

    - they hire everybody during peak season
    - encounter rude customers all the time
    - no free lunch, lunch selections are poor and unhealthy
    - poor management team

    Advice to Management

    - please learn more about your employee and don't favor anyone
