I was a dedicated really long time employee and appreciate you coming back with a response. God bless you all who are still there.

Well someone is brown nosing ...

Ok so seriously, yes management needs to make hard decisions. However these arent just hard decisions for a company on the brink of bankruptcy, these are decisionsbeing made that are essentially turning seaworld into six flags.

All the new rides and animal stuff slowly getting cut is a sign that SeaWorld is never coming back. We will keep up with the rescues as long as its nice PR to get people in the door, but ultimately if those cost to much money they will cut those too.

And its never going to be smart to run departments on a skeleton crew which is happening a lot. It leads to stress, burnout, and injury. This "new management" that the brown noser likes so much is literally creating an unsafe environment for us and the animals we are supposed to take care of.

So really, get a clue brown noser, or like someone else said, likely one of the "new management " posting.

What? Who the hell is commenting here. I was layed off on April 12th and what I received from the one who told me was scripted and yes they still have a job. At the end of their shift they still go home knowing their position is safe. As far as new management some of them are the reason we no longer have a job. Than you new management

I find it difficult for myself to argue against the changes new management has been making. If I get let go, so be it. I'll get another job. Previous management couldn't make the tough decisions and put the company in a very weak position. Although I'm not happy about having to possibly go find another job, I respect new management for making the tough changes. I'd rather be the one finding a new job then the one laying people off.

Oh i love it. They want to keep giving value to their shareholders but are sh--ting on the people who make it happen.

Like my team with multiple open spots in which we have been told ot is gonna get forced because we dont have enough bodies to cover all the shifts we need yet they will also preach work/life balance.

Im very glad i know when my exit date is, only reason im still here. Though its likely when they do the next layoff round ill finally get my walking papers then.

What this means is now Scott Ross has even more power and control. He has been the real CEO since Hill Path’s initial investment a few years ago. He calls all the shots and makes all the decisions. As long as he is around, you can expect more budget cuts, RIFs, low resources and penny pinching to the max. His exit is a sale of the whole company and that’s the number one goal of private equity firms like Hill Path. Look up the term “corporate raider”
