"Entertainment, Operations, Merchandise" - unsure of count or park

Stopped picking up nightly trash as of 4/1 (day after 1st quarter) rumors of moving park quality to daytime shifts so they don't have to pay differential, and making it part time.

Rumors of laying off full time people to hire them back as part time since HR won't let them change status.

Rumors of sorting animals into different parks, which is why AATs are gone. Moving land animals to Busch.

Rumors of new parks, raises

SWO just informed the Plant Engineering department that there will be “merit increases” and the way it is structures keeps a lot of good people from getting a raise. Even after years of no raises.

People have been posting about San Antonio layoffs... read through the posts before you start accusing people of stuff

My daughter-in-law was just laid off at SW San Antonio and there is nothing about the lay-offs there. Does SW San Antonio even exist for the rest of SeaWorld? They are people too and there are employees being laid off there too. She was an animal trainer with the Belugas and dolphins. Shocking how you guys don't even consider the people in San Antonio as part of SeaWorld. SeaWorld does not only exist on the east and west coasts people!!! And there are people hurting in Texas too because of SeaWorld's bad business decisions. She worked so hard to get on as a full time employee and she even had a BS degree so that doesn't even count. Just wanting to get rid of hard-working dedicated employees so they don't have to pay them what they are worth.
