I hope those new Disney people actually saw what they were signing on too.

1) PTO Accrual: Look at the details. Might surprise you how many hours you need to work to accrue time off.

2) 401k: How much is SeaWorld actually matching for your future?

3) Tuition Reimbursement: Looks pretty on paper, but the process to qualify and all the red tape, a lot of people got rejected recently as they now do not want to pay.

4) Company Growth: Look and listen to all around you. Make your own conclusion.

5) Medical Benefits: Costing more and more each year. We pay the highest for benefits compared to Disney and Universal. Wait and see how much they will charge us in October for the new 2021 plans for ok coverage.

6) Job Security: The company only goes through layoffs every six months.

I work for SeaWorld and have been fortunate to be the few called back. But this new company is not any company you want to invest any long term career goals.

You will see a majority of people working who are working for the money, but have no enthusiasm or hope for the company.

Instead of threatening outsourcing and 3rd party contracts. Why not try listening to your employees. How about recognizing what got you here.
Threats, oppressive policy changes, intimidation tactics are really great for employee morale.

To the Disney hires—-nothing magical at SW.

Also a lot of talks having third party companies come in the park and run restaurants and vending. Kind of like a Disney Springs model, but in SeaWorld.
Other departments could be run by third party, but our department is revenue generating and we can not be phased out. We keep the park afloat. They will loose more money cutting us. The park can’t run without Culinary making sales.

Yes it does. Plenty of Large Landscape firms to takeover Horticulture. Disney contracts out 85% of their Landscape work. I can see the Diving Ops being contracted out too, once again plenty of Diving Companies to take over. Disney and Universal contract their Diving too.

This actually makes sense. Entertainment is a big budget item yet decisions are based on favoritism and cliques.

You just happened to “overhear” that? Not likely. SN is too intelligent to verbally discuss.

Just overheard that Horticulture, Entertainment and Dive Ops will be contracted to outside vendors. So if you’re in these departments, it’s best to prepare. The wheels are in motion. Bids are being presented. Good luck all. And I’m not fear mongering. I speak the truth.
