SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at SeaWorld Entertainment Inc.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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.
