My guess is SN decided against permanent layoffs. If it was happening, it would've happened by now. Quit freaking out.
Topics regarding layoffs at SeaWorld Entertainment Inc.
You have a perfect opportunity to search for a new job while being furloughed and collecting unemployment. You have a chance to find a way to be rid of this place for good! Why waste it by doing nothing but waiting to - MAYBE - return to work at a... — read more
When the layoffs start, I'm assuming they'll be the first to go? I'm not trying to fearmonger or be cruel, I'm just thinking that those of us who are back should feel a little safer than those who are still sitting at home, right? Unless fewer people... — read more
I worked at SW a long time and never thought unions were a good idea. Till now. After hearing of how the employees are treated now. The city owns that land. Maybe they should look at how it is being run and treating the people who live here and vote... — read more
SN was overheard saying the layoffs will be announced soon. We are on pins and needles in the office. Universal and Legoland have announced their layoffs. We are next. Hope she is released after she let's everyone go.
SeaWorld Entertainment is seeking a loan from a federal program meant to help businesses retain workers during pandemic-related shutdowns, but labor group says the theme park company is undeserving because it furloughed 95% of its... — read more
Enough of these furloughs are being made permanent that I don't even know if SR thinks SeaWorld will come out of covid alive .. Anyone see things differently? Looking for hope in strange places
They have paid salaried and hourly employees severance since the pandemic. Why them and not those still furloughed? We need a legal firm to represent us!!! Sounds like they paid severance to favorites. Sounds like discrimination to me. They... — read more
At the end of this month, no more extra unemployment payout - and so many of us depended on that to survive. What do we do then if we are not called back (and it doesn't look likely that we will be called back any time soon?) This situation is... — read more
Texas is under fire as case rises and Bexar county (where SWSA is located) is quickly rising in cases as well. Any chance you think the park shuts down? Will they allow a single park to shut down or will all other major SW parks need to close as... — read more
We at SeaWorld Orlando know of someone at corporate whose husband was diagnosed with cancer 1 week before being furloghed with no benefits. She has worked here over 30 years. Does anyone know how to contact her?? We want to setup a GoFund Me for... — read more
The problem with allowing a CFO or shareholder to run our company is all they care about is profits. They don't care who they hurt. If you look at the most profitable businesses you will see their employees are happy. Look at Publix. All... — read more
Why doesn't M.S. give us that are furloughed a letter or message? He does everything mean S.R. says. M.S. you have children would you like them treated this way. Be nice and let us know if we can have hope. How do you sleep at night? Be nice. I... — read more
can someone start a change.org? Disney has one saying they no want to go back to work yet. It is on the news. Can we have one saying we want severance or to know when we will return? Seaworld doesn't care about us. No communication to us. Our... — read more
Sprits are down in Virginia tonight. BGW and WCUSA still unable to open as Virginia gets ready to start Phase 3 on July 1, 2020. The Park President said the Phase 3 restrictions make opening... — read more
Layoffs are coming....I know....shocker
Please check this out. It may apply on the case. https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/layoff-protections-florida-employees.html
slap in the face. I blame all of these on S.N. (Corp HR) she gets a kick out of hurting others.
There has been salaried and hourly employees already given severance pay since furlough started. There has been employees who were on STD and not called back with their newborns without medical coverage....no on can afford COBRA. There were full... — read more
Seriously, people. If you haven't been called back by now, you have higher chances of not being called at all than receiving that call you are so hoping for. If you're smart, you'll start looking for something new right away. Don't let yourself... — read more
Just putting out a warning to everyone who thinks it's ok to not answer the Sea World call....I wish I could tell you it was. Im sure you dont want to come back and I'm sure you probably also think you can just keep collecting unemployment. ... — read more
Now that it appears Juneteenth will become a state and federal holiday, will SEA celebrate the holiday and will they return one of the five optional holidays they took away? A: Yes to the celebration if its an opportunity to make $$$$ What does... — read more
I'd like see what SW's policy was the week we were all furloughed. The following was HR's response to a request for our handbook: The ambassador handbook is not available for ambassadors just yet. We will have it available online... — read more
Curious if anyone else still furloughed is getting pummeled by attorneys and journalists for new and older unsettled cases or stories? In 13 years I've never been approached before so i'm wondering if there is some type of list of us going around?
That moment where you are still furloughed and get a notifications of BG job postings....
If you work in ops in Orlando you will have noticed certain faces not being on the rides maintenance crew. Anyone have a comment on this? Were unpopular people not asked to return to work?
And why is no one talking about the point system??? I personally think it's about time, but weird there has been no vocal communication about it, except in the new Employee Handbook you are required to sign off on.
And I'm not just talking about layoffs with or without severance. They can now mistreat employees however they please because they know we don't have an alternative. The economy is in the c-apper, everybody is laying off, very few if any are... — read more
Unless you’re furloughed that is... but don’t be fooled y’all are just guinea pigs to do a dry (Or wet) run for park opening tomorrow to guests. Enjoy your shamu bar ;)
Why did the Orlando park president lie on live tv this morning? He was asked on Fox 35 if some attractions are closed and he responded “we’re opening all of our shows & attractions “ That’s NOT TRUE. No pet show, Antarctica, JTA & seven other... — read more
Unless you've heard it directly from somebody high up in the company - which I highly doubt - you can't know for sure that these layoffs will have no severance attached. Yes, you can speculate, but please stop stating it as fact. Nobody knows yet... — read more
Some will, some won't. What do we know? The parks furloughed more than 90% of its labor force due to the pandemic. Furloughs can last up to 12 months. The parks had millions in expenses while the parks were closed - even closed... — read more
Anyone heard any updates this week? More call backs or confirmed layoffs?
Just noticed they are deleting more and more posts. So much for Freedom of Speech.
Let's hear from the BGT and AI people. Who has been called back? Who has not? What rumors have you heard?
