Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), West Covina, CA – July 25, 2014
Pros: good hours

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Houston, TX – April 2, 2015
Pros: positive environment
Cons: lack of hours, very demanding guest
Its a very good place to work but only temporarily. Also expect a lot of guest complaints and having them yell at you for stuff thats out of your control but other than that very positive place to work at. Managers are awesome and willing to help you and work with you as long as you show them you are a hard worker.
Cast Member (Former Employee), Fresno, CA – March 27, 2015
Pros: Fun, magical, great experience
Cons: need plenty of disney knowledge
Typical day at work included stocking stage, greeting guest and working behind box office. Learned to communicate well with others and handle fast pace environments. Management was great, mature understanding and overall helpful. All co-workers were just as friendly. Hardest part of the job was Disney language, Everything was enjoyable.
Cast Member (Current Employee), Toledo, OH – March 27, 2015
Working for the Disney Store is every bit as magical as visiting Disney World or watching the Lion King. You get to experience childhood again and make a paycheck. Your fellow employees are the nicest people on Earth and the excitement and fun is endless. Best job ever.

Pros: a relaxed, yet productive work environment. great staff. great co-workers. free lunches

Disney Store, inc is a leading source for merchandise based after one of the world's greatest intellectual properties. Being a part of their Quality Assurance department has been a great learning experience and a place to communicate our efforts as well as making new friends.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee), Elmhurst, NY – February 24, 2015
Cons: sometimes no lunch breaks
Stocking the merchandise, interacting with the guest and children. Very fun environment even though it was a workplace. Hardest part of the job was reaching the top shelves with kids running everywhere. I loved the job because I was a very fun and magical place.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – February 1, 2015
Pros: fun, friendly environment
Cons: if part-time you only get 15 of break, not to much hours to work in holidays
Is like being a kid again. I cleaned the store, greet customer and sometimes cashier. The co-workers where all very friendly and kind, and were always very helpful and patient while training. The hardest will be stocking but it was fun at the same time.
Cast Member (Current Employee), Houston, TX – January 29, 2015
Pros: fun workplace, fun guests
Cons: very little hours for part time positions
Fun place to work. Day to day tasks are greeting guests with Disney magic bringing the park feel to them. I've learned how to fold a many t-shirts! haha. The management and co workers are all nice and upbeat people to be around. The hardest part of the job is staying engaged with the guests. Most guests love browsing the store on their own peacefully, but management loves to have employees contact them regardless so that can become a bit awkward and challenging as a employee. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the face on kids and parents light up when they step inside.
Great enviornment and all around fun place to work.
Cast Member (Current Employee), San Francisco, CA – January 29, 2015
Pros: sneak peeks as to whats coming out next before anyone else
A typical day at work can be very busy, between the happiest guest on earth and our continuous visits from around the globe you do get well versed in what people come in looking for. I lern to be patient with possible language hurdles but as a cast member you have great support from your management team as well.
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee), Elizabeth, NJ – January 8, 2015
A typical day at disney was making sure to do the grand opening. Then tending to the magical guests. I learned how to ring and to returns and exchanges. I learned how to properly do shipment. I learned how to make a store look presentable. The Management and my co-workers were amazing people. I've even learned things with each of them. The hardest part of the job was trying to always be happy. The most enjoyable part was watching everyone who came into the store enjoy themselves with the memories of what we all grew up watching.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Metro north, than Independence Center – December 26, 2014
Pros: working for mickey mouse
Cons: stores closed
Open store, walk floor to see what needs to be filled, receive shipment, process it and fill floor. Make schedules and assign areas for cast members to work, work with guests. Had certain areas that were inventoried on daily bases. Conference calls, recruited, trained in my store for the other stores. I learned how to delegate. Best company to work for. Nothing hard about job. Just working in that magical atmosphere.
