Manager of Polaris, Gaming and Sports (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – September 22, 2017
Loved my time working for Disney, and I would truly like to return some day. I left for a non profit position that seemed right at the time. The team also went through some major changes during my time, but I still value my time with the company.
Data Analytics Professional Intern (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 21, 2017
This is one of the best place to work. You will feel energetic since you are creating happiness to the world. The company offers the best salary in the entertainment industry so do not hesitate to work there.
MAKER (Former Employee) – Burbank, CA – September 21, 2017
I had a different experience than most while working at Disney. I was apart of a company that was bought by Disney and we were able to keep our small feel culture for as long as possible. It was fun, but we were worked pretty hard.
Fun & exciting place to work & made life long friendships
Cosmetologist (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – September 19, 2017
I loved working for The Disney company. Even though there are cons, I would definitely go back if the right position was to open up. I learned how to style better through all the great cosmetologists there & how to use better time management.
Discounts on vacations & merchandise, free main gate entrance, free wheelchair or stroller rentals, discounts on food, free parking
Work every holiday & every weekend & they do not care about your school or family schedule
Asst. Dept. Supervisor (Former Employee) – Burbank, CA – September 19, 2017
It's a great company to work for, but you will give part of your life to the company. You will be compensated and the weekly parties are great. You are expected to meet all your goal, and if not there will be issues.
BARTENDER (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – September 18, 2017
Create a magical experience for guest on property. People come to the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts to experience out of this world customer service and the expectations placed by the guest are always exceeded.
Disney is great place to work if you are just looking for a day to day job with no real advancement, but if you are looking to move up within the company, it is extremely hard to do so unless you are willing to sweet talk your leadership team- and even that does not necessarily give you the best opportunity for promotion.
Travel Planner, Agent (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – September 18, 2017
Working for Disney was a dream come true. Everyone I worked with from the managers to the staff was very kind. The pay was was less than a person could do to live, and they expected open availability. We got a lot of perks, and park benefits, but I couldn't survive on the pay. I miss working for Disney, but am glad I found something I could live on.
Merchandise Hostess/General Teller (Former Employee) – Lake Buena Vista, FL – September 16, 2017
management could use some work, pay could be increased, but overall fun and fast paced place to work. time off is hard to come by, especially for college program participants, but they give everyone a fair chance
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – September 14, 2017
Love working here the only downfall is that i have to work upwards 60 hours a week to afford my bills. Yes the benefits are wonderful but working so much i rarely get to use them. It can be stressful at times when it is busy.
Flexible hours, fun cast members, but low pay with many deductions
Quick Service Restaurant Cashier (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – September 13, 2017
Although the guest service work at the Disneyland Resort is helpful for future positions elsewhere, the financial compensation does not cover basic costs of living, especially given that many deductions are applied to one/s paycheck. Such deductions include high-priced union dues for union representatives who do not know current procedures or policies.
Merchandise Host (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – September 13, 2017
This was my college job that I intended to stay at for a few years before progressing to a more "adult" job. The job itself is fun, the guests are great, and the coworkers are some of the best people you could meet. However, the job does not pay well enough to support yourself (not to mention a family or career). I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy my time with Disney, but I'd also be lying if I said I could be here for the rest of my adult life. Following Disney as a career path is difficult due to their promoting process being unreasonably tedious for the differences it makes between an hourly or salaried employee. Some people are cut out for it, most others however, are not.
Great people, fun job
Difficult to grow, management can have strong favoritism.
