With the new PTO policy, you can never actually use the time you are eligible for. The only way to earn enough PTO in their new plan is to work a bunch of overtime. A person 1-5 years of service has to work 16.25 hours to earn 1 hour of PTO. ... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at SeaWorld Entertainment Inc.
Actions speak louder than words. The company has proven they are not sugar coating anything, and they treating us like we are disposable employees. Unfortunately, We still need the money to pay bills for the moment. We are told we are not... — read more
I feel if there are to be any layoffs they will come in the next week or two. Haven’t heard any rumors lately. With the new vacation policy and rise in benefits costs they are just waiting for us to cull ourselves
Sure, temporary workers can sell popcorn.....but can they safely open a ride or make a dolphin jump? If nothing else, should be interesting.
All these people complain asking for unions, not realizing how they work or what they do. Have fun getting a sizable portion of your check taken out while not getting any sort of tangible outcome. Then this forum will be filled with people... — read more
I also have a new policy. If SR wants some work out of me....he has to accrue work time. Work time accrual only happens during vacation time. It's going to take something different to obtain a different result. We've been bent over for a long... — read more
Ambassadors, it is finally time for us to speak up, not on this site but in person. Voice your displeasure to your leaders, senior leaders, park presidents and even the new CEO. Let him know what is going on from our perspective. He’s new, perhaps he... — read more
Salaried were given our vacation information today. It’s not good! I predict an exit for greener pastures which shouldn’t be hard to find. Ask your salaried management 😏
ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: SEAS), a leading theme park and entertainment company, today announced the appointment of Sergio (Serge) D. Rivera to the position of Chief Executive Officer and member... — read more
In an up market today, SEA stock dropping like a rock. Does Wall Street know the 3rd quarter was a disaster? Thursday should be interesting for sure.
Employee s noticed while cleaning the offices at corporate they were having a meeting at 2am , I didnt knowl they came in that early, seems a little strange, but then again we r talking about seaworld, nothing is a suprise
According to benefits, our packets "hopefully" will show up the last week of October. Anyone heard anything on this subject (that doesn't pertain to layoffs.... Anonymous I know). Actually it does, makes some of us hope even more for a layoff! .. — read more
What happened to the post about Aquatica SD ?
It’s difficult as an Ambassador at SeaWorld that has experienced the pile on after every layoff to watch the entitled Salaried and Corporate employees. We are kept in the dark, received a minimal raise, losing vacation time, and fear for our jobs... — read more
You think PETA is paying him to run this company into the ground?
Heard some rumbles that salaried are getting a bonus? Thought SW was in trouble financially and that's why we laid off 100+ people. Nothing coming for the hourly workers actually working their butts off, instead of the salaried team who is doing... — read more
Every park and every department company wife has been negatively impacted since S-R took over. How have your park and department been impacted since his arrival?
The long term company policy is to remove animals and be the Disney South. The fact that they can't do anything because of the California Coastal Commission make little $$$ value so their master plan is set. Wait until the last polar bear is shipped... — read more
What’s even more irritating is that we now get major news about the company from outside sources instead of hearing about it internally, before it hits the media. Oh wait, I know, the excuse is always we’re a public company now. So I guess the public... — read more
SW is being used on this chessboard we are living on. At some point, I believe they will have to change the name. How about SR World? Fitting to name it after the P©S that destroyed it.
Our corporate Marketing Manager has been with the company since 09 and he’s joining the others from SLT and SWO leadership and jumping ship. Can you blame him? There’s no transition in place. They can’t fill the backlog of positions we have now... — read more
My thoughts are unless we hit it out of the park, big changes are on the horizon. Didn't seem like we were that busy this year in Orlando.
We all have to keep up our commenting. It’s being read (for whatever good it will do).
Unfortunately it has already been proven that the animal aspect of Sea World is falling to the wayside. You can see it in operation just from SeaWorld alone. Infinity falls area could have focused and put in exhibits about South American animals... — read more
Has anyone been reporting the new plan to the media? I can’t believe that something we earned and we’re given at time of hire can just be taken legally or ethically Report the story to your local news desk and let them do some digging
San Diego employees were allowed to get free gas today from the parks gas pump due to a maintenance issue. But really? Couldn't the VP of Finance let the rest of us minimum wage employees get the gas instead of her getting in there to?
Does anyone here remember what an ECM was? How about an ACM? For you newcomers, they'd usually happen an hour, or so, before the park opened. They would show us videos of new commercials and tell us how well the park was doing. We'd even have a... — read more
A good read altogether, but this is my favorite part: As SeaWorld continues to thrive in the future, though, it cannot forget the fact that a large portion of its visitors are attracted to its animals. Future attractions will need to incorporate... — read more
Even the chairman/CEO of Universal, Tom Williams, doesn’t think much of us. Here’s an excerpt from a recent interview he did, before Gus resigned. Disney and cruise lines are the biggest competition. Williams doesn’t think that the other big name... — read more

we should take a page from their book. I'd bet that we've got a few people that could make dandy signs. How's about.....SW treats their animals better than their "AMBASSADORS!" Probably a few people with strong speaking skills on a bullhorn. ... — read more
AHEAD= AGAINST HOURLY EMPLOYEES ABUSE DISCRIMINATION MANAGEMENT NEEDS TO SEE THIS. (NOT THAT THEY CARE) OR LIKE THEY SAY.... THEY ARE ONLY HOURLY
Hourly employees WILL be losing vacation time. Long time employees the most. Salary employees will have UNLIMITED vacation time. How's is this fair.??? This will k–l whatever morale is left. Benefits will increase for everyone. Our checks... — read more
I have shown this board to by counter parts the management of the mouse. They question anyone who is or was a leader in SeaWorld. Your company has a poor reputation for having poor and unskilled management. We support you! Union!
The outsourcing is so low, honestly. They should be ashamed.
I say we get togeather on October 5 and massive call in. How many on borad it won't work with 5 people stand up for what you belive in Gus did.
How many people here think the whole "adding rides" strategy is a good idea? I personally think it can't hurt, but the money that'll be invested in it could be used for better purposes. There are plenty of better ways to get SeaWorld back on its... — read more
