Some new info

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

People, relax

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

For Sale

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

Real people in charge

So the company is now being run by consultants—former colleagues of the CEO.

Nobody knows nothing

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

Another President

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.

This place is Walmart on steroids

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

Delayed policy roll out?

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.

Communication?

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

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

You don’t get it yet

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

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
