Pros: free lunches, free park admission, free admission to universal and any seaworld owned park
Cons: short breaks, ugly uniform, bad free lunches, heat
I need more money during a summer break from college, so I applied and got hired at SeaWorld.
I show up, stand outside for hours sweating in my polyester visor and watch as all the tourists flock by. I dealt with the cash register, food administration and cooking. Sometimes I worked at the stands selling soft drinks.
Management was cool and friendly, – more... I quite liked them. As always, my coworkers save me. If I hadn't had jovial cracks at my expense and other coworkers expense, I wouldn't have survived the summer.
The hardest part of the job was when someone stole your fan. You do not want to be in dark blue/green and black outside in the middle of Florida summer for hours without a fan.
That being said, the most enjoyable part was getting to do inventory in the freezer.
A legitimately hard part of the job was restocking and making sure the customers were happy. – less
