Challenging, exciting and a dream place to work.
Seater - Front of House, Non-Tipped. (Former Employee) – Orlando FL – February 19, 2017
Due to the conditions of my employment being a cultural exchange program, there were many restrictions and conditions of my employment. However, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity that taught me the ins-and-outs of the hospitality and tourism industries. Some days I would work 6 hour shifts and other days I would work up to 13 hours. In this particular role I would start work at 4pm and sometimes not finish until 3 or 4am. I worked with people from many different countries and cultures, who ranged from 18 to in their 60s.
The guests were sometimes the hardest, but also the most enjoyable part of the job. Sometimes they would cause some drama for the restaurant, however working at Disney World provides you with the opportunity to create magic for guests, which in turn creates magic for you as a cast member.
The best way to explain this job was memorable and magical.
Free entry to theme parks, meeting many like-minded people.
Long and late hours, minimum wage.
