    I worked at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free access to SeaWorld Parks Nationwide and employees get into Universal for free, good co-workers, good variety of employee discounted food, good training and easy job overall, liked the uniform shirt but not the high-waisted shorts. I would recommend this job if you're nearby and can handle the outside heat, although it's usually only $11/hr it's decent compared to most jobs only paying $8-10, although I feel it should be $12-13 minimum.

    Cons

    Only up to 29 hours part time, summer heat working outside can get to you especially over 100 degree real feel, okay management depending on department some are better than others, employee access to food can be "cheap" but could be better priced overall instead of per item, lowest paying theme park in Orlando area
