Cashier (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – April 26, 2017
The benefits and perks of working within any section of the company are totally worth it. The people are usually really fun to work with (I've never met anyone who didn't have at least a few friends where they work). Of course it's just a job, but it's entertaining.
STORE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Brea, CA – April 26, 2017
Work was never boring I learned quick thinking The management was always on top of things in terms of scheduling and assessments Coworkers were great and created an enjoyable environment to work in Always having "magical" moments with the guests and with each other Staying in character and always churning out magical language was the hard part but helped me to quickly think of creative ideas
Lifeguard Cast member (Former Employee) – Buena Vista, FL – April 26, 2017
I worked for Disney several times and you meet great people and really do have fun. The hourly management doesn't do much to help out their employees & there is a lot of drama in the workplace. And the pay isn't great. But you get free park admission and discount so it evens everything else out.
World College Program Internship (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – April 24, 2017
Free membership into parks + employee discount Management is willing to work with each cast member to get all information past across in an effective manner Fast paced but you get to meet people from all over the world
It was an awesome first job. being part of the crew was amazing because i worked with some really hardworking people. Everything was going smooth until the management team changed. That is when i decided to leave.
Cast Member (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – April 21, 2017
Working for The Walt Disney World Company is an honor in itself. Walt Disney would be pleased that all the research and requirements he wanted his cast members to be held to a certain standard to. It is a high volume job which can lead to some stress. But the cast members in each role are one of perfect people. While working for the company each role that was assigend was viewed as just as important. Whether garbage duty or custodial to character you are valued and given the role of making magic come to each guest individually. I would reccommend this company to anyone and would love to be a part of the corporate Disney World CO.
Fun environment, potential growth, strong company and valued as an employee
There are zero health benefits, holiday pay, breaks no matter how long I've worked and the managers and staff are so cruel. I've never been treated this way at a work environment for doing nothing wrong ever
No breaks, no healthcare, no holiday pay, no over time, and they got rid of tips for the hostesses.
Executive Secretary (Former Employee) – Celebration, FL / Lake Buena Vista, FL – April 18, 2017

Most enjoyable part was working with the most talented and creative people in the industry.
Guest Service Representative (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – April 18, 2017
I loved working for this company, we had a different manager that took over our department and I became uncomfortable working there. It was such an amazing experience and I learned so much from our Guest Services Director.
Sales Associate (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Northridge, CA 91324 – April 14, 2017
I enjoyed working here even if it was a seasonal job. The employees, my supervisor, and the customers were always kind. This place was a great first job and I would love to work here again. Being a sales associate, I was able to interact with customers and help them with what they needed.
You're working for the privilege of theme access rather than a living wage.
Guest Information & Ticket Sales Agent (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – April 13, 2017
Your day is spent with constant guest service and you'll either be scheduled too much or too little. I've spent 4 years working here and as much as I've advanced the pay is never enough nor stable to live off of. Some practices are questionable such as constantly hiring part timers but working them full time hours for most of the year with out benefits. It's good for a first job? They train you to be an ideal worker and you'll gain experiences you can't even compare to other company (mostly good but some bad. And I will say i've made many life long friends here.
going the theme park for free, labor union, a sense of community
short breaks, underpayed, inconsistant schedules, no weekends free, quesionable business practices
it's hard to not say this was, by far, the most fun job I've ever had! apart from that, there were some management politics that I didn't agree with. When it came to advancement, it came down to who you know and who likes you rather than what you know and what you can do. The pay was fantastic, however was too low for the area you would have to live to get to work due to it being a high vacation spot.
uh... DISNEY! free park admission and discounts throughout Disney properties and more, mostly friendly coworkers
