A Universal Orlando Success Story
Natiesha Cross - Assistant Manager, Attractions Operations
Natiesha started her career at Universal Orlando in 2006 when she came to a job fair looking for a first job that would be fun. She found just that when she was hired as an Attractions Attendant at Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges. Throughout her time at Universal Orlando, she has worked her way up with a series of promotions to get to where she is today. Her first promotion was from Attractions Attendant to Team Lead. After proving herself in that role, she was offered a temporary Supervisor role and then shortly thereafter, was promoted to Supervisor full-time. Natiesha takes pride in the fact that she was able to develop others while she was in these roles, building a legacy. She is currently an Assistant Manager in Attractions Operations.
