August

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

Cafeteria quality

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

I'm confused

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

We are on our own

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

Union

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

New vacation policy?

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?

Unused vacation when leaving

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

BAT takes over

Be prepared for more layoffs in San Diego. These people put in place to continue cuts with no regard to how it will affect the running of the park and all they see is an opportunity to make a name for themselves.

Rats abandoning a sinking ship?

In orlando word is going around that the VP of culinary is quitting. Then the communication meeting that was already scheduled once was outright cancelled. This combined with additional whispers of another wave of cuts coming isnt a good sign.
