Next Year

There are always possibilities for more. A lot of what we heard prior of them looking at assistant sups/sups/managers has not yet occured. The only real thing they dealt with was the call center. They've done layoffs later than this before so nobody... —  read more

What they won’t answer about accruals

With the new PTO policy, you can never actually use the time you are eligible for. The only way to earn enough PTO in their new plan is to work a bunch of overtime. A person 1-5 years of service has to work 16.25 hours to earn 1 hour of PTO. ... —  read more

Thank you to those that remain

My heart is broken for those that remain. Thank you for staying and taking care of the animals. I frankly don't care about the rides, but my heart will always be with the old Sea World. I love those animals and I love of you that have stayed... —  read more

Do your job just enough to keep it

Actions speak louder than words. The company has proven they are not sugar coating anything, and they treating us like we are disposable employees. Unfortunately, We still need the money to pay bills for the moment. We are told we are not... —  read more

Unions

All these people complain asking for unions, not realizing how they work or what they do. Have fun getting a sizable portion of your check taken out while not getting any sort of tangible outcome. Then this forum will be filled with people... —  read more

Layoffs?

I feel if there are to be any layoffs they will come in the next week or two. Haven’t heard any rumors lately. With the new vacation policy and rise in benefits costs they are just waiting for us to cull ourselves

New Policy

I also have a new policy. If SR wants some work out of me....he has to accrue work time. Work time accrual only happens during vacation time. It's going to take something different to obtain a different result. We've been bent over for a long... —  read more

Isn’t it Time To be heard??

Ambassadors, it is finally time for us to speak up, not on this site but in person. Voice your displeasure to your leaders, senior leaders, park presidents and even the new CEO. Let him know what is going on from our perspective. He’s new, perhaps he... —  read more

Vacation

Salaried were given our vacation information today. It’s not good! I predict an exit for greener pastures which shouldn’t be hard to find. Ask your salaried management 😏

Somethings up

In an up market today, SEA stock dropping like a rock. Does Wall Street know the 3rd quarter was a disaster? Thursday should be interesting for sure.

2020 Worthless Insurance Enrollment?

According to benefits, our packets "hopefully" will show up the last week of October. Anyone heard anything on this subject (that doesn't pertain to layoffs.... Anonymous I know). Actually it does, makes some of us hope even more for a layoff! .. —  read more

Salaried Bonuses?

Heard some rumbles that salaried are getting a bonus? Thought SW was in trouble financially and that's why we laid off 100+ people. Nothing coming for the hourly workers actually working their butts off, instead of the salaried team who is doing... —  read more

You are no better than the rest of us!

It’s difficult as an Ambassador at SeaWorld that has experienced the pile on after every layoff to watch the entitled Salaried and Corporate employees. We are kept in the dark, received a minimal raise, losing vacation time, and fear for our jobs... —  read more

We support SeaWorld Employee Rights

I have shown this board to by counter parts the management of the mouse. They question anyone who is or was a leader in SeaWorld. Your company has a poor reputation for having poor and unskilled management. We support you! Union!

Wait until all the animals are gone

The long term company policy is to remove animals and be the Disney South. The fact that they can't do anything because of the California Coastal Commission make little $$$ value so their master plan is set. Wait until the last polar bear is shipped... —  read more

How is S-R ruining your department?

Every park and every department company wife has been negatively impacted since S-R took over. How have your park and department been impacted since his arrival?

Losing earned vacation

Has anyone been reporting the new plan to the media? I can’t believe that something we earned and we’re given at time of hire can just be taken legally or ethically Report the story to your local news desk and let them do some digging

Q3 is in the books

My thoughts are unless we hit it out of the park, big changes are on the horizon. Didn't seem like we were that busy this year in Orlando.

Who thinks this is a good idea?

How many people here think the whole "adding rides" strategy is a good idea? I personally think it can't hurt, but the money that'll be invested in it could be used for better purposes. There are plenty of better ways to get SeaWorld back on its... —  read more

Free Gas - SeaWorld

San Diego employees were allowed to get free gas today from the parks gas pump due to a maintenance issue. But really? Couldn't the VP of Finance let the rest of us minimum wage employees get the gas instead of her getting in there to?

Working for cowards.

Does anyone here remember what an ECM was? How about an ACM? For you newcomers, they'd usually happen an hour, or so, before the park opened. They would show us videos of new commercials and tell us how well the park was doing. We'd even have a... —  read more
