Suggestions for improvement

  • BE MORE COMMUNICATIVE!get feedback or concerns or anything from employees

What I like about the company

My coworkers at my restaurant are always there to help me out if I need it and we work hard as a team to accomplish a goal and coworkers are always knowledgeable if you need help or assistance with something or if your not sure of what to do best thing to do is ASK QUESTIONS

What I dislike about the company

I feel that managers could be more communicative with their employees that work in the restaurant via email, text, phone call or in person and specific with information in person

What is the company culture like at Universal Studios? Help others make critical decisions by letting them know what it’s like to work here!

Office / Work Environment

Some of the uniforms are unsuitable for extreme cold/hot weather conditions.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would change how certain things are done. If someone has more than five H.R. complaints against them (from different people), I would immediately terminate the employee he complaints are against. I would also change some of the products we sell (such as mail-able items) to make it easier for international guest can mail a letter home without buying a pack of ten that they will never use again. I would also add themed water misters into certain areas so that both guests and employees alike can cool down in the hot summer days and a few heater spots for the colder days.

What I like about the company

This company allows me to meet new people every day and also lets me experience the new attractions before the general public. I also get guest tickets every year that I can use for friends and family.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the Human Resources department. I know of a few strong cases against people that should end in termination of the employees but the HR department has done nothing so far besides having coaching with said team members. I believe that if a person has more than five complaints against them, they should be immediately terminated and not "talked to".

  • Closing carts two hours before the park closing instead of 30 minutes before. Gives cashiers and food runners time to clean, cash out, put away merchandise, count stock and food, give spoils to employees instead of throwing them all away. Assign team leaders to one area so if a cashier needed to use the bathroom they could do so with no accidents. Allowing cashiers to perform refunds instead of waiting on a team leader who may be on the other side of the park dealing with other issues.

What I like about the company

Some team leaders were excellent and did everything to make working more tolerable. Managers were understanding with special circumstances and were willing to work around special cases. Easy, menial work that you don't need to think too hard over. Good pay, higher than competitors.

What I dislike about the company

More watch for cashiers in solitary stations especially for female workers who have heavy periods and need to use the bathroom throughout the day. More female leaders because some male team leaders brushed off health concerns brought up by female employees. Definitely favoritism and mediocrity is promoted over harder working people.
