Ambassador

May 2018 • Tampa, FL

What I liked

I like how flexible they are with my schedule within reason. Summer hours are the busiest so time off is harder to have but if you had something planned months in advanced they will accommodate it as long as it isn't unreasonable. There also are a lot of benefits like getting into the park for free and getting discounted tickets.

What I wish was different

I wish breaks were a little longer or more evenly spaced. It's hard in my area to leave without someone to cover you since I am in a very high paced portion of the park.

Advice

Some areas in the park take a lot out of you mentally so if you take offense easily or can't take people insulting you without retorting I wouldn't recommend this job for you. It can be a big strain on your psyche if you're new to customer service.

Photo Sales Clerk

April 2017 • Tampa, FL

What I liked

I like working with the co-workers, I never have any trouble with them or any other employee. Everyone seems nice. Of course, you get discounts on everything you buy and free/discounted tickets to go to Busch Gardens (and other theme parks). Working in the Photos Department is a pretty chill. It's a good job for people who have never had a job before too.

What I wish was different

I wish the communication between the supervisors and the ambassadors (us) was more efficient.

Advice

Honestly just be yourself and you will easily feel more comfortable around your co-workers, which will make work seem less of a "job". In other words, you'll have fun there!

Pool Lifeguard

March - September 2018 • Tampa, FL

What I liked

I enjoyed the abundance of hours to pick up and the oppurtunity to work over time. I greatly appreciated being CPR/AED and ARC lifeguard trained for free. There are many perks of working for Seaworld as well, including free and reduced price passes for all parks. I enjoyed the work environment and my coworkers all seemed to have positive experiences at the park as well. This is the second year in a row that I worked at Adventure Island, and I will return again in the future.

What I wish was different

There were only a few moments where I had wished that my supervisors could have communicated more efficiently between them and myself, but this was a rare occasion based from miscommunications.

Advice

Wear your sunblock, every single day. And reapply at regular hourly intervals.

Line Cook

May - July 2019 • Tampa, FL

What I liked

The whole experience was amazing. I went through a program called the Tampa Project, which is connected to a Christian organization called Campus Outreach. The main focus of the project were Christian oriented classes that were centered around evangelism, and the jobs that we had through Busch Gardens went to help pay for rent and living expenses. I really enjoyed meeting all of the great people that I encountered while there, including other students from different colleges throughout the country, and the many people that I met that live in Tampa. Even now, I still maintain contact with some of the people that I had met.

Admission grounds

June - September 2019 • Tampa, FL

What I liked

I liked the employees and experience of working with the guests at Busch gardens. Additionally the benefits and park admission perks were nice.

What I wish was different

I wish that there were more hours offered and I wish the supervisors were more understanding and considerate towards their employees because the employees were constantly yelled at for asking questions.

Advice

I would recommend this as a temporary job while searching for another job. This job did not pay well because there were very few shifts and hours offered. If you are going to work here, work during a season that is eventful, such as Halloween or Christmas.

June - August 2019 • Tampa, FL

What I liked

I liked that I got a chance to keep guests safe by being trained on how to perform rescues and perform basic life saving skills

What I wish was different

I wish I could have worked there longer since Adventure Island is only in Tampa.

Advice

I would advise people that this job requires attention to detail because you have to be ready at every moment to save guests from drowning
