Productive work place, great for a summer job
Games Attendant (Former Employee), San Diego, CASeptember 6, 2014
Pros: great pay for a first job, discounts in park and on movie tickets and other park tickets
Cons: mostly seasonal positions
A typical day of work consisted of opening up the games areas, filling up the balls, bins and other areas that needed to be refiled. Taking inventory of stock, and sweeping area to ensure cleanliness. I learned how to work with different people everyday and with a vast amount of different personalities from the guests to my co-workers. I learned how to stay calm in stressful situations and how to be quick on my feet. Management was great, they always took care of the employees and made us feel like they cared and were listening to our concerns. My co-workers were also great, lots of fun and great people to work with. The hardest part of the job was trying to make sure that people knew the rules and to keep guests from becoming upset when they didn't win. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people of a daily basis and being able to create a memorable visit for them.

Favortisim at work, no ability to advance
Rides Operator (Former Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 14, 2014
Pros: good hours
Cons: short breaks, no free lunches
Long day with a little bit of rest, Not a lot of leaning going on and most of the time you get no help when you need it. Co-workers are fine very one get along sometimes and people help each other when they have to but not always. Hardest part about the job is the times that they give you they don't like to work around the schedules that you give them when your in school or have asked for time off. The most enjoyable part of the job was the friends that I made.

Customer Service (Current Employee), San Diego, CAApril 23, 2014
On a normal day I see roughly around 500 guest and its wonderful. I enjoy talking to and helping people find whatever they may need. On an eight hour shift my job could vary between being on the register or in the back making churros and or popcorn. All my co-workers and leads are awesome, they are the type of people who strive for something better.

Server (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZMarch 18, 2014
I only stayed so long at this job because I became good friends with my coworkers. We all put up with the management but it made work a hassle everyday. Luckily, I think the previous GM that I worked with has left the establishment.

Park Hostess (Current Employee), San Diego, CASeptember 17, 2013
Pros: free entry into seaworld for myself and family and friends, cheap lunches, friendly people, raffles and prize giveaways, close to where i live
Cons: pay, short breaks, uniforms, sometimes you don't feel appreciated, unpredictable weather conditions
I love working at SeaWorld but I currently I would like to get more experience in the field I am studying, such as working with children in foster care and schools. A typical day for me at work is go to a stadium and I greet guests for the show, make sure that people are safe and after the show we would clean. The people I work with are a great group of people and we have fun but are also able to get the job done. Although the park is quite busy we often don't see upper management and sometimes I feel like they may not see all the hard work we put into our job. The hardest part about my job is dealing with guests who are unhappy. Since working here I have developed new and better communication skills with unhappy guests and overall I am able to help them with the problems or concerns they may have. The most enjoyable part of my job is making sure our guests at SeaWorld are having an amazing time and helping them out in any way that I can, guest service is a huge part of working there.

Sales Clerk (Former Employee), San Diego, CASeptember 12, 2013
It was a fun environment that allowed interaction with different type of people. Pay was descent, although there is not much room for advancement and the managerial team is not the best.

High energy place with tons of sun
Ride Operator (Current Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 25, 2013
I go in check in with the ride I am at, see what part of the ride a half to relieve and staff. Then answer guest questions and or measure guests or maintain cleanliness or oversee ride and the sending of it depending on which position I am at. Continually entertain guests while keeping the ride safe under seaworld guide lines. Have knowledge of park and of San Diego for tourists.

Hardest part is keeping track of all safety procedures while working and speaking with crowds of people.

Co-workers are mixed, mostly high energy and social.

Culinary Operations Hostess (Former Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 5, 2013
Pros: free lunch, cute animals, celebrity sitings, worked near the beach
Cons: i sometimes had to stand out in the hot sun and i would get a farmers tan from the uniform
A Typical day at work is pretty exciting, there's always something new, either a celebrity comes at our restaurant to eat or something goes wrong like a seagull steals a kids churro out of his hands. Everyday I worked with completely different employees and I learned that can be really fun and I learned how to build rapport. The hardest part of the job was one day all the employees had to come in to test the new roller coaster, Manta, when it first opened I was really scared because we were the guinea pigs, but then I got over it. The most enjoyable part of the job was the Candy, ice cream, kettle corn and hot chocolate during Christmas.

Beverage Host (Current Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 28, 2012
On the whole working at SeaWorld is great. However there are times when I have been forced to go five and a half hours being allowed a break. I wouldn't say anything if it only happened once, but in reality it happens almost every week.
