Completely toxic. Forced smiles, micromanagement, deceitful recruiting tactics. The Cult of Mickey loves being paid 50% of equivalent jobs at other companies, but after a year you realize how fake everyone is being just to keep their job. I left with my dignity intact but they will convert you to the cult or leave you bitter.
Inside of the Parks we HAVE TO ALWAYS have a smile and cheerful, upbeat attitude so that our guests always think everyday is fun filled with rays of sunshine. In our underground city, it's different. We want to spank little Suzy for her temper tantrum. We can be ourselves and KNOW we may have that headache that JUST won't go away. In OUR city LIFE is REAL.
Produce, produce, and produce some MORE! What Disney's DRC won't tell you is during your first 30 days out of the Academy, if you don't have the sales or if you fall into the bottom 4% 3times, they let you GO. Once and IF you make it past that to become an Incumbent Agent in the DRC, depending on which department you are in determines how many issues you have to pass. You CAN'T have a TOTAL of 3 in ANY OF THE SAME CATEGORY during a ROLLING CALENDAR YEAR. One here for this one in one month you're fine. You JUST CANNOT HAVE 2 MORE in THAT SAME CATEGORY for the next 11 Months. You constantly HAVE TO KNOW WHERE you stand for fear of NOT meeting Disney's expectations...sell, sell, and sell some more.
It truly depends on your Manager and THEIR personality. SOME make it fun as well as make you feel valued. Others simply like to micromanage your EVERY move.
