Can anyone recommend a good site to build a resume? I know that help is available free of charge at the Department of Labor but I am looking for other options. I want to leave SW so bad I’ve reached a point where I’m just ready to quit but I know I... —  read more

Glad to be gone!

So many of my friends still work for the Orlando parks and are miserable. 60+ hour work weeks, mandatory 6 day work weeks, no vacation time getting approved and a miserable environment where toxicity and un appreciation run rampant. Good riddance... —  read more 

Layoff as an opportunity

No need to despair. After they changed my status from furlough to laid off, I found a new job in record time. I just took it as a new opportunity. I'm almost sure most people would never leave this company unless they were pushed out? If I hadn’t... —  read more 

How long did it take you?

I’m pretty sure that when we got furloughed during the pandemic last year there were many of us who held onto the hope of being called back. Then, after months of waiting, there was no communication to return to work. Some (such as me) didn’t wait... —  read more 

Is SW on resume worth anything?

I wasn't very angry when I got laid off because I wanted it to some extent. I can only say that I was relieved when they told me that they no longer needed me, they helped me make a decision that I could not make on my own for a long time. I turned... —  read more

Morale is so bad

It's like living a bad dream. I have absolutely no motivation and still find it hard to accept how devastated this company is. I used to come to work smiling, and now... I can barely stand it. What about you? The job is very hard to find, at least... —  read more 

Orlando get together

March 13th will be a year since we were sent home never to return. Let's get together at millers al house on Idrive on Saturday March 13th at 7pm on the patio. Tell everyone. Lets celebrate each other.

Are things getting better?

Does it look like Seaworld is going to start calling people back any time soon? I'm worried about my brother, he still hasn't found a replacement job and is not really looking that hard since he's hoping to get that call. And I'm not really sure that... —  read more

Disappointed with peers

When the head of HR has to send a statement “strongly” advising employees to follow CDC guidelines “outside” the workplace, and I see on FB that many still are not, I get angry. It’s really disappointing. I thought the people I respected and admired... —  read more 


You really think changing your postings to one day of availability will change anything? You don't think that I have every req number ever posted documented? Hilarious if you really think that hiring under false availability pretense is going to be... —  read more 

It was time to let go

I was involved in the last round of furloughs. I knew I wasn’t going to return, knew none of us were - but in the beginning I had hope. Then that hope turned to anger, then despair, then sadness. There comes a time when you HAVE to move on because if... —  read more 

Liars for rehiring

My friend who was let go like me tried to work again at sea world so he applied and they said they weren’t going to follow through with the application process but my friend who’s new applied and is in training R U KIDDING ME


Guess what is not legal? Orchestrating and posting positions/hiring for favored people who absolutely do not meet the five day unrestricted availability requirement for new trainers while so many are furloughed. Don't worry HR we all know who... —  read more
