    I have lots of activities and vacations planned for the summer, how flexible are the schedules?
    It usually isn’t a problem to accommodate a typical summer vacation or consistent activity.  However, keep in mind that all employees are expected to work as a team to cover their assigned shifts.  We pack a lot of business into just a short time, so if your schedule is unpredictable or you need extensive time off, this may not be the job for you.

    I want to apply to work in a certain department, but I don’t want to work anywhere else.  Is that okay?
    Nope, we are a team.  While you will spend the majority of your time in your home department, all employees should expect to spend at least a few shifts working in other parts of the park.
