The managers at SeaWorld Orlando are great at doing their job. I enjoyed working for SeaWorld because I loved going to work every single day to do what I did. I enjoyed every single part of my job and specially enjoyed getting to know our guest.

Food and Beverage Assistant (Former Employee), ORlando , FLJune 19, 2015
On a typical day at Seaworld, I reported to Seaport Pizza. I would help open the restaurant and clean before guests arrived. Next, I would help with food preparation and display. Then I would either keep helping with food preparation or I would be put on the line to serve food to customers.

A go no where, make no change job
Ride Operator (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMay 15, 2015
Pros: Get into Park free
Cons: Everything else
The management is the worst. You can't move up let alone become full or part time. They don't care about their employees at all. You don't get hours. They treat the animals better then they treat there employees, good for the animals I guess but employees should be treated better.

Assistant Supervisor (Current Employee), Orlando, FLApril 22, 2015
SeaWorld is a good company to work for, it has a lot of benefits and they really care for their employees. You get to work very closely with animals regardless of what department you work in.

Enjoyable place to work and attending to food service
Food Service Attendant (Current Employee), Orlando, FLMarch 4, 2015
Great opportunity to gain experience. Serving food, cashier, custodial work, busser/dishwashing. Management is quite flexible. Co-workers work great together as a team. Most enjoyable part is the schedule flexibility. Most hardest part of the job is the nothing.

Stepping Stone
Theatrical Services Technician (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJanuary 19, 2015
SeaWorld was an amazing experience and I was surrounded by people who were friendly and very knowledgeable. I learned so much in a short amount of time and I really enjoyed working with multiple different teams and in different locations throughout the park. My managers were friendly and worked with me and my schedule excellently as I am a student as well. The hardest part was being surrounded by professionals who have been working at SeaWorld and other theme parks for many many years and trying to keep up and learn on the go. But everyone was kind and helpful and I quickly picked up the skills and knowledge I needed to do my job. As this is my first theatrical job at a theme park, I hope this will serve as a stepping stone to other theatrical theme park jobs and I am confident that I will re-apply next season.

Depressing Place to work
Attractions Host for Wild Arctic (Current Employee), Orlando, FLJanuary 11, 2015
Not a fun place. The company has gone down hill quick. Ever since Blackfish, the company is paranoid about its day to day functions and there is not hours enough to go around.

Productive and fun workplace where I was Able to work and site see the new things I've never seen before and meet new people from all over the world.
Cashier and Stock Room (Former Employee), Orlando, FLSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: the lunches, the benefits
My typical work day at sea world I would say was very busy. I worked at a very fast pace being that I was In a gift/souvenir shop I was kept very busy. I learned how debit/credit cards were to be authorized and how a cash register worked. My co-workers were oh so nice to me they were definitely a big help when I needed them. My hardest part of working for sea world I would say was the stocking. Sometimes if we needed something out on the floor and it wasn't in the back we would have to then figure out what we were going to put out so that what ever theme we were with those items would blend in. My most enjoyable part when working for sea world I would say was meeting and greeting new people from all over the world, And also getting to see all the different animals and attractions too.

Rating depends on department
Associate (Former Employee), Orlando, FLAugust 10, 2014
Pros: cool coworkers, free admission to parks and other attractions, cool team member events, pay was solid
Cons: poor communication, lack of transparency, poor organization, non-realistic expectations, medical benefits not to par
At first glance, this is a great company and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to be anyone part of something big. However, that recommendation would come with a disclaimer of "be wary of the department".

The department I was in was not an "in-park" job. It seemed great from the onset but I quickly learned it was going to be a long ride. There was no transparency throughout the department, upper levels had no idea what their managers and lower level employees did, communication in the department was murky at best, and everything was entirely segmented. It is preached that everyone is "team members" but in reality you can see who is favorites and who isn't.

This was the first job in which I truly saw sexism from the top down. The upper level was very misogynistic and spoke down at some female employees beneath him (see favorites above).

Employees get along with each other for the most part, but as with any job/situation there is gossip aplenty, and there are definitely "clicks".

Could be a great job for you, could be a bummer. Unfortunately for me it was the latter.

Good luck.
