    I have been working at SEA LIFE full-time for less than a year

    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.

    Former Employee - Entertainments Staff 
    Recommends

    I worked at SEA LIFE part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The entertainments team is very interesting and you learn a lot about the animals through giving talks and training you receive with information from the company. The ethos of the company is very conservation focused which I felt was a positive environment to work in with people who care about the animals.

    Cons

    Minor con, but its a very fast paced environment so the turn around of activities can be every 15 minutes which can be intense for some, but also keeps the day busy and interesting
