Director (Leader) of maintenance gave notice today. Another one gone.
Topics regarding layoffs at SeaWorld Entertainment Inc.
Still no word at all on vacations. Here it is halfway through September and nothing has been said. It’s going to get to the point where people demand something because the year will soon be over! Also today rumor has it at Swo that some animals... — read more
Entertainment Senior Leader in San Diego says goodbye! San Diego has gone through all of them just about.
So I have heard some additional things which may or may not point to anything new so take this all with a grain of salt. At the Orlando contact center, the lease for that building ends at the end of this month. I know at one point in the past... — read more
Not that I want "Ambassadors" to have missed days at work (except for me). When there's a hurricane causing less people on a rollercoaster that it takes operating it.....maybe we should close the park. I know, we've got to see what Disney and... — read more
Another 2 bite the dust...
Why is everybody so worried about being laid off? Honestly, how many of you can tell me leaving this place wouldn't be a blessing in disguise? Lousy pay, lousy (if any) benefits, lousy hours, lousy work environment... The way I see it, every... — read more
All signs point to a sale late this year or early next. Not since InBev sold parks have things been this tightly run. Finance leadership confirmed that a sale is most likely imminent due to making the company look more profitable than it is... — read more
So the company is now being run by consultants—former colleagues of the CEO.
I'm sure next week will be just as "fun" as this week
We can all anticipate the cuts. I work in a department that might get cut entirely. Every single person in leadership acts like they don’t know. My particular office does not even have a lease for a month from now
Management simply puts on a smile and pretends like none of this is happening. Everyone , start taking your belongings home... it’s coming
Rumors of layoffs in the culinary department that are full time with seniority of 15 years or above going around the park. Be aware they might be coming for you.
BGW President leaves. Leadership talks the talk ,bit when push comes to shove it is empty loyalty. FYI,they are survival style cowards and have no moral compass.
Rumor has it that anyone with 15+ years affected.
Stock market wasn't fooled by the smoke and mirrors theses clowns spit out on the call today. We beg employees to come to work and they talk about further cost reductions. No money is being spent on upkeep and everything is falling apart. Guests get... — read more
Promising to exceed the $50 million in savings previously announced by way of labor cuts with no impact to the guest experience. Gus had the nerve to thank “fellow employees “ for their hard work. Have you ever met him or has he had and ACM in your... — read more
What changes do you guys think are being implemented immediately ?
Q2 earnings report next week. That always means layoffs. They've been watching finances in Tampa like a hawk, trying to make its everywhere they can. So far they haven't been able to reach the amount they've been looking for and the only other way to... — read more
90MM savings promise and delayed roll out of reduced benefits=not good news. Why the delay? Looking at leadership reduction in both the Florida parks.
https://behindthethrills.com/2019/07/seaworld-shakes-up-board-and-adds-new-director/ Don't know how I feel about this... Hopefully they can cut costs on rides instead of staffing.
You know what's so funny, is that to get most promotions they require you to be over the top with communication with your higher ups. HOWEVER the higher ups do not communicate with anyone lower than them. so it gets ridiculous. VACATION NEWS???? we... — read more
Am I losing it, or is the thread about corporate vp from yesterday/this morning gone?
It's almost August, I hope everyone has updated their resumes. And if you get laid off have some self respect and don't go back if they offer you your job back like a loser. They love to play you like a puppet, pulling your strings. They know you are... — read more
Shocked at all of these sad sack posts. You still don’t get it! This company almost filed bankruptcy. This company almost sold San Diego. This company was almost owned by the bank. You’re worried about food in the cafeteria or toilet paper or your... — read more
So is the plan to slowly make the cafeteria worse and worse until everyone is using the self serve kiosks? I'm sure the plan would then be to eliminate it entirely and jack up the prices at the kiosks. I'm on to you Seaworld. I knew it was downhill... — read more
We already have huge attrition at SeaWorld - people are leaving constantly and not many of them are replaced. So why exactly do we need more layoffs? It makes no sense - especially considering that finding any replacements is getting harder and... — read more
The company used to be able to say they wanted a one on one relationship with employees but with so little leadership, we are on our own. Our supervisors and managers don’t even care anymore or don’t have time to care. At our park, we used to have... — read more
Do we have any idea when we can expect more?
It’s time we seriously think about unionizing. The company no longer values their employees. You can argue it’s a different company but all SeaWorld thinks about is keeping Hill Path happy. Our benefits are always in danger and a union would protect... — read more
We need to start a petition, im in, but who else is?
Still no rumors on max amount of earnable time off in 2020?
Have THEY announced what “transition” time they will be issuing in January? All the signs are pointing to a significant reduction in available “Personal time off”,all of the senior folks that have vested time are being reset. You can dress up the pig... — read more
I heard that the new vacation policy is based on hours worked......does it roll over every year? What is the max accrual (is it based on tenure)? Can we still sell it back to off set medical insurance costs?
Anybody watch? Sad.....
Vacation Time for 2020 Reduced. Greedy b**’s!
You only get severance if you are laid off. And another thing to keep in mind, a policy they put in place in 2017 and never told hourly staff about it—if you resign, you will not receive any unused vacation. In addition, once you give notice, you’re... — read more
Q1 results were positive, 34,000+ animals rescued and things looking up! Blessed to work for such a great company. — read more
Or is it just full timers, no matter how long you've been with SeaWorld?
