    Pros

    •Being apart of some guests first experience of sealife •Seeing joy of the happy guests •Can walk around park and see all the aquariums and enclosures! •Magic pass •Meet a diverse range of people •Makes you more resilient

    Cons

    Would be cool to be paid more in peak times, definitely a job that will make or break you. Not really many cons, it's long hours standing up but.. "That's life" as Frank Sinatra once said. Express when you can't work, don't be a yes man.

    Pros

    There are some good work friends that help get you through the day. Get a Merlin pass that allows you to go to other Merlin attractions

    Cons

    They will literally get you to do about 3 peoples jobs. A lot of the time if someone leaves they won't employ someone to take over they well just share out the responsibilities to other employees. Everything is just focused on Money and making cuts and making money with no thought about what it has on the employees.
