Very fun workplace. Always something new
Cashier/Hostess (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLSeptember 10, 2015
I enjoyed the job very much. It taught me a lot about customer service and I got to meet people from all over the world. A typical day is just experiencing different types of people. My coworkers were very kind. The hardest part was probably dealing with the different cultures who came to visit the park.
Pros
Lots of great benefits (people, pay, etc)
Cons
Never closed

LOG FLUME LEAD SUPERVISOR (INTERN) (Current Employee) –  WilliamsburgSeptember 10, 2015
A typical day at works includes overseeing the daily operations, such as the ride being in working condition, scheduling team members to work, writing their scheduled rotations throughout the day, assist both guests an team members with questions that may arise, training new team members, making sure that both old and new team members are being trained correctly and are doing their job properly, issuing audits, recording turnstiles, and doing paperwork. Leadership classes have taught me to become a better leader. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with guests and team members. The hardest part of the job is dealing with weather conditions and ride shut downs. I have learned to become more calm, coll and collected in the event of this.
Pros
Team member activities
Cons
Heat

Culinary Facility Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Williamsburg, VASeptember 9, 2015
Busch Gardens is well renown park, who on average interact with about !5,000 customers a day. These massive number of customer requires the typical Busch Gardens employee to be energetic and dedicated. The aforementioned number of customers do not all enter the park simultaneously. This creates instances where the work day can begin slow and pick up spontaneously. This influenced me to always make sure that was prepared, and even over prepared in some cases. The experiences I've had at Busch Gardens has allowed me to bond with people from everywhere, co-workers and customers alike. Some of my closes friends now started as just one of my many coworkers. Busch Gardens environment is the best place for every novice worker. It is great way to introduce yourself to the working class and it also allows to successfully grow as well versed employee.
Pros
Rewards for hard work and free tickets to the park
Cons
Long and grueling work hours

Entertainment Technician II (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLAugust 13, 2015
A typical day at work would be swiping my ID to clock in, leave lunch in the fridge and go turn on sound. half hour after testing speakers, microphones IR machine, DVD recorder, Lighting and Qlab software, proceed to play atmospheric music and wait until 15 minutes before the start of the first show. eight minutes into show, start calling time before preshow music starts. show starts and mix sound for live belly dancing show. on second track, mix lighting by hand because rest of the show is fully automated. opening and closing of curtains depending on cues. after the show, play announcements and stay for meet and greet. after meet and greet is done, stop recording, finalize the first show because performers use it for constructive criticism and better of overall show.
Pros
show business in a themepark!
Cons
not enough full time employment opportunities

Education Department Serengeti Tour Guide (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJuly 5, 2015
Most positions are part time and can be very demanding.

Long, seasonal hours. Difficult weather conditions. Multi-cultural and often difficult to communicate safety needs.
However, they are very organized and co workers are often great!
You are all in same boat!
Pros
TICKETS!

Bad weather, short term work

Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAJuly 5, 2015
Good pay, but you must earn it. Working 40+ hours a week in the middle of july outside isnt the best but it is manageable. The management staff is always not the best do to the lack of experience and knowledge. Overall not a bad organization to work for.

Busch Gardens
Seasonal Crew Member (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJune 24, 2015
Busch Gardens employment is very difficult. It is incredibly easy to get a seasonal job with them but incredibly hard to move on to part-time, and even harder to get a full-time position. They compensate their employees very well with a competitive starting rate, free passes to their parks, and free entry almost any day to their parks with your Busch Gardens ID.
It can be a very fun job, but during the off season it can be a little boring, some of the supervisors allow you to bring books or newspapers to read while the park is not that busy. The only complaint I really have is that there is a very far chance for advancement if you don't know the right people and the hours are almost impossible to regulate.
Pros
Free Passes, Free Entry to Parks, 30% off prices at stores and restaurants
Cons
Bad hours, Hard to advance.
