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 us.

Hill Path is running, and ruining, our company with our new CEO being the puppet!
Hell yes to a union- I’m in!! Let’s show them they can no longer treat us like pieces of sh--. We’ve worked too hard and long to get treated like this. Why do you think Corp HR is having these meetings at each of the parks—they’re quietly calling it union avoidance. They’re petrified!!
The company's only focus is Scott Ross and his insane demands and directives. Is he intentionally trying to sabotage the parks? Is this an endgame to finally sell off parks? He's certainly focused on destroying employee retention and eliminating experienced leaders and employees from all parks.
To the person asking about whether or not we got paid double time for the 4th.. no. We never get double time. The only way you even get any sort of overtime is in the event you make over 40 actual worked hours in a single week. If you were to get benefit time used in a week it wont be used past 40.75 hours (IE, if you would work 12 hours one day, 3 8 hour days and then get 8 hours of sick time they will cap you at 40.75 hours for the week and only use 4.75 hours of sick time) in the name of "Work life balance".
We only get "optional" days which are days we can take anytime (provided we have coverage to take said days). It avoids them paying overtime on any particular day just because it is a holiday.
We got free hotdogs and long lines everywhere in California. Happy 4th of July
Did you get paid double time for working the 4th? Disneyworld employees did. Read their union contract which is on the internet. Even part time has a contract. At least they know where they stand unlike our company which doesn't even announce changes. Did Gus even show up to work in any park this holiday?
True. The company used to be able to say they wanted a one on one relationship with employees but with so little leadership, we are on our own. Our supervisors and managers don’t even care anymore or don’t have time to care. At our park, we used to have holiday lunches and dinners and at least some semblance of concern or appreciation from our VP’s or park president. They at this point are just cooperate puppets, bending to the will of a board that doesn’t value people. I get it, it’s a job and people will say “well then leave” but for many it’s not that easy. We all love the people we work with and the animals we care for but this company is going to keep going down and not because people don’t visit, rather because management no longer sees any value in their because asset, their employees
