Engineering Professional Intern (Current Employee) – Lake Buena Vista, FL – February 2, 2016
Disney overall is a good company. There are a lot of different positions and areas of expertise for you to grow into. You are exposed to many different areas of business and get some great experience. Management and co-workers are pretty friendly on the whole, and there is certainly a lot to do in your off-hours. There is, however, a lot of competition for the few jobs that become available. As such, the pay isn't the greatest, and you can expect to spend several years in a temporary, contract position until you finally get full-time. They have also been cutting benefits and discounts in the past couple years.
It's Disney! Some free admission benefits, discounts on park experiences
Pay is mediocre, backstage life is pretty drab when compared to the parks, benefits get cut as park popularity grows
Internship (Former Employee) – Lake Buena Vista, FL – January 19, 2016
Disney is amazing and fun, until the rain starts the fall for just five minutes and your soaked, and it's just an hour left of your shift and you realize you spent 11 hours in the sun. The memories I gained and the fun you have with company overshadows the few things you don't enjoy about the company. I'd do it again in a heart beat!!!
Internship (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 3, 2016
since I was working there for an internship I barely got paid anything. I worked long, weird hours and had to wear strange costumes to work everyday while I was working with food. The management was nice enough and it was neat to do when I was 19 years old. I got to live away from home with people I had never met before.
At Disney I took out dirty sheets and towels, cleaned the bathroom with cleaning materials, dusted and cleaned the window. Working at Disney I learned how to make animals out of towels such as ducks and chickens. I also learned how to clean a VIP's room. My co-workers at Disney were very nice. If they finished doing their duty, they would help you finish what you had to do. The hardest part of working at Disney was since I was working at a resort, we had to move long distances to clean other rooms. The most enjoyable part of working at Disney was when the supervisor inspected rooms they would give you points that would lead to a bonus.
every day is different each day you are either doing a party or prep work. if your on a party you need to figure out what type of food they want done and how they want you to do it you clean and cook. but its different.
Well organized & their standared of performance was excellent.
Coordinator of Training (COT) (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – June 29, 2015
As my role in Disney started early as I was a member of the Magic Kingdom Merchandise Core Trainers. The work was very satisfying teaching the new cast members their role in Disney. My co-workers were a pleasant group of people that I had the opportunity to work with. My managers were always there for you & very understanding. The hardest part of the job for me was the constant high humidity & heat for most of the year. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the joy & happiness of the Disney guests.
we received many perks along the way as a Thank you from Disney.
I still have to say the high tempertures & humidty.
