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
Topics regarding layoffs at SeaWorld Entertainment Inc.
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
What changes do you guys think are being implemented immediately ?
So the company is now being run by consultants—former colleagues of the CEO.
I'm sure next week will be just as "fun" as this week
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
Rumor has it that anyone with 15+ years affected.
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.
Management simply puts on a smile and pretends like none of this is happening. Everyone , start taking your belongings home... it’s coming
Q2 earnings report next week. That always means layoffs. They've been watching finances in Tampa like a hawk, trying to make its everywhere they can. So far they haven't been able to reach the amount they've been looking for and the only other way to... — read more
Rumors of layoffs in the culinary department that are full time with seniority of 15 years or above going around the park. Be aware they might be coming for you.
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
Promising to exceed the $50 million in savings previously announced by way of labor cuts with no impact to the guest experience. Gus had the nerve to thank “fellow employees “ for their hard work. Have you ever met him or has he had and ACM in your... — read more
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.
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
https://behindthethrills.com/2019/07/seaworld-shakes-up-board-and-adds-new-director/ Don't know how I feel about this... Hopefully they can cut costs on rides instead of staffing.
Am I losing it, or is the thread about corporate vp from yesterday/this morning gone?
Have THEY announced what “transition” time they will be issuing in January? All the signs are pointing to a significant reduction in available “Personal time off”,all of the senior folks that have vested time are being reset. You can dress up the pig... — read more
Vacation Time for 2020 Reduced. Greedy b**’s!
Still no rumors on max amount of earnable time off in 2020?
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
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
We need to start a petition, im in, but who else is?
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
Do we have any idea when we can expect more?
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
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?
Or is it just full timers, no matter how long you've been with SeaWorld?
Anybody watch? Sad.....
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.
Q1 results were positive, 34,000+ animals rescued and things looking up! Blessed to work for such a great company. — read more
Scott R and Walter tour SW SD yesterday with the park president and park VPs. Scott looked at everything and was yelling at the group at one point. there was speculation he was going to let more go. did anyone hear more about it? was anyone let go?
Layoffs happening right now but they are hiding it from the media (scope, locations, etc...)
BAT id--ts strike again. I’m sure they all have their resumes ready. This company is truly in the toilet. Leave now if you can
BAT in Va. Good times to follow.......just relax and let it happen.
I’m guessing not the last.
Was this a lay-off - firing - quit?
