Culinary (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – July 21, 2018
Working for Busch Gardens & Water Country was always a trill! Clocking in knowing my day was going to be great was a good feeling. The mangers always made sure the workers & customers was always Satisfied!
Base of Operations Office Coordinator (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 20, 2018
I worked in the Operations office for Aquatica at Seaworld San Antonio. I transfer calls for the park, log call-ins and tardies and relay those to zone managers. Document ride closures and durations, document lost children incidences and durations. Dispatch zone mangers to life guards requesting assistance using 10-codes on the two-way radio. All information and documentation is compiled to an end of day report that is emailed to all the directors of the park.
Air conditioned, refrigerator and microwave, my own desk space, out by 8:30pm
long commute to designated clock in machine, don't call out unless someone else covers, only 3 people in job.
Working for Seaworld has definitely taught me a lot. It's a very flexible job that works with your hours. The people that I have worked with had a great work ethic and are very personable so becoming good friends with the employees in your area is relatively easy, in my opinion. The park does get busy, especially on weekends, so I'm always up on my feet working on what needs to be done. On an everyday basis I'm always working on a register, directing guests or talking on a mic, depending on which shop I'm assigned to that day. Overall, working for Seaworld is a great experience.
PART TIME EMPLOYEE (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 19, 2018
Everything about the park itself is awesome but the company behind it is horrid. I had a terrible time communicating with management. I worked for them for one whole year and was not approved a vacation when I had more than enough sick hours.
Beverage Server (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 14, 2018
A typical day at Sea World would be serving customers nice cold beverages and flavored snacks. Lots of tasks are accomplished from a 12 hour shift to keep business going strong. Stocking items back and forth the whole park such as drink bottles, boxes of snacks, and alcohol bibs.
Half price lunches, family discounts
Pay was satisfactory towards the amount of work done. Short breaks
Park Operations (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – July 12, 2018
I really enjoyed working for SeaWorld as a company, I feel what they are trying to do is a good thing and helping animals is always good. The job I performed was not a good fit for me as I have social anxiety disorder and this caused me a lot of daily stress do to guest interaction. Guests can be horrible people and do attack employees of any company if things do not go their way. I think I may have had a better experience with this company working in a different feels then the one I did. But over all it wasn't a bad company to work for and I would recommend it.
SHIFT MANAGER (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 11, 2018
I worked in discovery point and it was excellent. It really matters which department you end up in, however. My job was great and fun, but I feel as if I was somewhere else, it would have been very miserable.
Fun to work at but could use more shade for employees and guest
San Antonio - Merchandise Photographer (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 11, 2018
Great place for a first time job, especially if you like SeaWorld's culture and the up coming of it as an amusement park. But one thing is that it gets hot when standing in the sun for long periods of time. For the most part its has great people to work with and has flexible hours to work with.
Free admission to all parks, free and discounted tickets
Cashier (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 6, 2018
I didn’t like my manager or store that I worked at so I’m not sure how it would be for anyone else. As far as the friends I know at sea world, they really like it. I guess it was just my manager that made the experience terrible for me.
