    Seaworld is hiring seasonal RN's. . .for $14.75/hr. Seems a tad. . .insulting.

    Yikes. I made more as student nurse intern in college. I just watched the documentary 'Blackfish' so I wouldn't want to work there anyway, especially when I came be making 3x more elsewhere.

    If it is not a typo I want to know what they are smoking...they want experience at $14.00/hr. Good Luck! I'm going to call tomorrow and find out....they are closed for the day

    Well Disney land in Anaheim California pays 25/hr for RN. I'm not that surprised.

    I watched that! It made me feel guilty for going to Seaworld as a kid!

    I can't imagine anyone would be willing to work for that, especially not the "flexible schedule" of evenings, weekends and holidays.

    I might do it if they paid all my living expenses, including car rental, fuel, restaurant tabs, new shoes (LOTS!)----

    I hope this is not a portent of things to come.

    No employer will pay more than they have to - for any job. Some jobs have "contextual benefits" that make them very attractive despite low or inadequate wages. For instance, Major trauma centers & well-known teaching hospitals can get by with paying less because of the training & experience they provide. Working in a highly desirable location/setting is always a plus.

    However, if there are just too few jobs & a lot of desperate nurses, employers will be able to decrease wages for the skunky jobs & still attract applicants. I hope to goodness it doesn't come to that.
