Attractions Cast Member (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 23, 2016
I loved working for the company. They were understanding and made sure I was satisfied with the job. You just get tired of the guest. Some guest are just not happy at all and take it out on you and act like spoiled children.
Retail Sale Associate (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – October 22, 2016
Working with the Walt Disney Company was a great experience overall. Every coworker their was very helpful. The managers are quite excellent people they help and are their for you for any concerns you have.
The company as a whole seems to lack the magic it was first inspired by and more money hungry. management needs to be restructured throughout the company - at least in parks & resorts - and there should be better pay. The benefits are great and the cast members are incredible. The company is misleading in regards to career advancement - you are told you can move up but company loyalty seems to not matter since alot of higher positions seem to come from outside whereas current cast members stay stagnant in their current roles which creates frustration and resentment - this needs to change. Also, the pay needs to improve - cast members are the face of Disney and should be treated with more love and respect - cast members are being paid at poverty rates which is not cool.
Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Glendale, CA – October 17, 2016
I enjoyed working for Disney for the longest time. I worked at a brand new animation studio and enjoyed the people for the most part. I never could connect with my peers being among an older/family job crew. Lots of great parties and celebrations among the several lay-offs and project cancellations.
Great culture, amazing work/life balance.
No room for internal growth. Can stagnate in the same position.
General Teller / Concierge (Former Employee) – Lake Buena Vista, FL – October 16, 2016
A great second career. No guest should ever walk away from a Cast Member without a smile on their face. This is a company that give the Cast Member the power to "Make the guest happy" as long as the Cast Member is justified in their action. The one on one guest interaction was the nicest part of the job. I was fortunate to care for some very friendly and sometimes famous persons.
Park Greeter (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 13, 2016
The day will start as typical as other jobs with only employees running to start the new day. As a park greater you are the first faces that the guest will see. It could be a little overwhelming sometimes when they ask you so many questions at once.
