ORLANDO, Fla. – Universal Orlando Resort is increasing its starting base rate to $15 per hour and giving more than $18,000 current team members a raise.

The new rates will become effective June 27 and will impact full-time and part-time hourly positions as well as entry-level salaried roles, according to officials with Universal.
“This is about taking care of both our current team members and those who will be joining our team,” said John Sprouls, executive vice president and chief administrative officer for Universal Parks & Resorts. “We know a great guest experience begins with our team members – and we will continue to provide the best work experience we can.”
