Universal Orlando Resort is increasing its starting wage to $15 per hour. The starting base rate was previously $13 per hour. This increase gives more than 18,000 current team members a raise based on the new rates and their time with the company.
Today’s increase represents the single-largest wage increase in Universal Orlando history. $15 is the new starting base rate, but Universal is also increasing start rates for many other positions based on job requirements. These new rates will become effective June 27.
”We are excited about our future and we want team members who will be excited to be part of that journey,” said John Sprouls, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer for Universal Parks & Resorts. “This is about taking care of both our current team members and those who will be joining our team. We know a great guest experience begins with our team members – and we will continue to provide the best work experience we can.”
Universal Orlando is currently hiring full-time and part-time positions for the summer. Jobs are available in all areas, including Attractions, Aquatics, Food Services, Culinary, Merchandise, Custodial, Warehouse, Entrance Operations, Call Center Sales – and more.
