What is working from home like at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment?

Pros

Friendly co-workers for the most part, good complimentary access to the parks owned by the company.

Cons

Leadership at this company is terrible. 5 different CEO's since 2018. No direction. No awareness of modern workforce demands and expectations. Straight up Mon-Fri with no work from home or flex scheduling. People stay beyond 6pm on daily basis. Work weekends. They don't want you working from home yet expect you hook up your personal cell phone to receive company emails so you can respond to emergencies when home. Corporate culture is boring. They built a new office building and it has nothing. Just a small 3 story box with no cafe, no gym, no outdoor employee area, no amenities. No nothing. Fire drill after after fire drill. Everything that comes up needs to be done immediately. Nobody knows anything and everything is a mess. Massive turnover rates. There are two types of employees, brand new less than 6 months, or a few that have been there forever whom are terrible leaders. This place dying a slow death with Disney and Universal moving forward well beyond them. Stay away from this place.

Advice to Management

Put yourself on a performance improvement plan.

Straight up Mon-Fri with no work from home or flex scheduling.

What is overtime like at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment?

Pros

• Free admission to SeaWorld and Busch Gardens (12 comp tickets per year). • 30% discount for employees and 40% over Christmas • Flexible schedule. • Nice co-workers. • EXTREMELY relaxed environment (half of the time) to the point of boredom. • Good for a first job

Cons

• You get no hours (24 hours weekly max during high-season). • When low-season hits you barely get any days scheduled to work (sometimes only 1 day a week). • No overtime EVER. • If they aren't making enough money the day you are working, they'll send you home and you can't say anything about it. • Absolutely no help whatsoever to grow within the company SPECIALLY if you are in Merchandise (even if you have a degree). • Next to zero chances to become full-time. • Hostile guests. • Since almost everyone is part-time you get zero benefits (health, etc.).

Advice to Management

Not sure if Management knows what's going on, they don't seem to connect with guests to the point of the park being almost empty during the week. Merchandise Leads are super nice and will help you out as needed, they are doing the best they can with what they have. HR needs to help employees at least interview for positions before turning them down (even when they have all the requirements needed). If you are going to charge guests for paper bags because we are "helping the environment", then don't purchase everything wrapped in plastic that we can't recycle! A little hypocrite if you ask me. All in all, the park is cool, and the festivals are as well, hope it lasts enough to see improvement.

• No overtime EVER.
