      Free admission, great benefits for full time, cast member previews on rides before they release to the public


      Depending where you are, you can have the greatest leadership or the not so great. The pay is not keeping up with inflation causing many of us cast member to be borderline or at poverty. The culture in my opinion is not there anymore. Long hours because scheduling won’t cooperate with your bid ( I was pretty up in my seniority)

        nothing- you work long hours and are completely disrespected by everyone from producers to actors to other costumers.


        There is nothing I can say that is good about this job or industry

      Project Assistant

      Hi! I am starting to have interviews for project assistant and auxiliary roles at Oil & Gas companies, what would be green flags answers to salary requirements, tools, and specific industry experience?


      Bank of America

      Hello! I have my final interview with Chubb this week! It’s a sr. Analyst role hybrid in Tampa! Does anybody work at the Tampa site? Any reviews/insights would be appreciated! I’m really hoping for an offer!


      Marketing Manager

      Thoughts on feedback you’ve gotten during the interview process? I know feedback is rare to get but of the few times you’ve gotten it, do you agree or disagree with it? Does specific feedback make if feel better or worse than general ‘not selected’? I’m pretty open to feedback . gotten feedback I understand (not senior enough, no enough hands on experience) and others I dislike/disagreed with , decided I was better off without the company since we didn’t align
