      Pros

      40% online lego discount 25% in-store lego discount 20 Free tickets to Merlin attractions Perks at work discounts are great Flexible around educational commitments The central planning team (people who do rotas) are very quick with replies when you have a query

      Cons

      Very long hours on some shifts 8:45 to 21:00 Finish times are an estimate so could be there 2-3 hours later than advertised Very little progression chances unless you are in a department such as food and beverage Sometimes verbally abused by guests even though their issue has nothing to do with your department.

      Pros

      Magic Pass, discount on LEGO product

      Cons

      Managers are either jumping ship or being pushed out left and right since January. 3 managers or directors fired and 10 managers or directors left before the park and hotel was even fully open. They can't get people to work here due to long hours and poor pay. No one is referring their friends, family, or network to work here due to what they know as a bad work environment.
