Photographer (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – June 30, 2016
I loved what the company stood for, during every photo we where trained to capture the guest moment of joy. Sometimes it was their first, other times that moment would be their last. I truly loved working to make other happy.
Publicity Assistant (Former Employee) – Burbank, CA – June 29, 2016
I came to Disney straight out of College. It was a great place to start my career and learn what corporate America is all about.
Learned the power of working relationships and that job well done doesn't always garner a promotion. You have to seek it and you have to be your own cheerleader.
I loved working alongside the colleagues who put the same amount of time, sweat, and tears into a projects and enjoyed seeing the twinkle in the eyes of children as they would see a film for the first time.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Glendora, CA – June 29, 2016
Yes you read it right, Disney has a children's center in Burbank and Glendale and I had the unfortunate pleasure of working at the Glendale site. These teachers are so prideful and rude, you couldn't do anything without getting snitched on to management that you're not being "Disney show" The needs of the children never come first, it's always look good in front of parents. The management played favorites, even teachers who were cussing other teachers out, nothing happened to them because they were favored. People with bad attitudes got to do whatever they want, like sweep sand all day and not even interact with the kids. I had to watch my back everyday for fear of my job. This place doesn't know a thing about education and professionalism.
I'm sure the rest of the company is fine, but if you're thinking of working at their preschool I would think twice. It was not a great experience at all!

Guest Service Manager, Food/Beverage Operations (Former Employee) – Lake Buena Vista, FL – June 27, 2016
The Walt Disney Company is just as moral and good-doing as they portray themselves to be. The senior leadership remains relentlessly focused on gearing all employed persons towards the "right" thing. In addition the goal really is to provide a satisfactory (in fact, above average) experience to all who experience their offered products/services. The nature of the job working in a theme park carries some stress and lack of "desirable" schedule. Their was great satisfaction in being able to meet and interact with so many different walks of life. Overall, I enjoyed my employment.
I enjoyed working for this company because it gave me the opportunity to work with all kinds of people. There were multiple opportunities to really get to know and interact with not only co workers but guests as well. Working there truly made me feel like I was making a difference.

Advanced Sales Associate, All Star Team (Former Employee) – Lake Buena Vista, FL – June 21, 2016
I gained a lot of knowledge observing all the different day to day operations of the Walt Disney Company while I worked there. Although my role was mainly sales oriented and goal driven, I still had to be a part of the magic and making sure guest service was not forgotten about. In the end, people pay a lot to spend their time at Disney. I was there to help make it enjoyable while letting them know about disney vacation club.
Cast Member (Current Employee) – Hershey, PA – June 17, 2016
On calls are required and make it hard to have a life. It's just a retail, part time job, it's ridiculous. You cannot move up in the company. It's almost impossible. For $1/hour more, you can apply for leads when they are available (only seasonal/someone steps down) and do a lot of what the managers do and a lot more than the cast member duties, and it's not worth it. Typically it's you and one or two cast members, typically just you and a manager some nights, even busy nights, and it's not fun or worth it. They are always busy but never use on calls so that time you set aside is wasted. 5-10 hour work weeks don't pay the bills, which isn't fair when you're a college student and cannot get another job. You get free Disney Park tickets but how is that a benefit when you make $30-$100 a week and can't afford to even go unless you're the manager. If you need to switch or call off, you get a "point" and three points in a rolling 90 day period gets you fired. That's not fair either, because what if things happen or occur and you cannot control them? If you do shipment, be prepared to not get your entitled break, either.
Secretary III - Administrative Assistnat (Former Employee) – Burbank, CA – June 16, 2016
TWDC is the a great place to work. Managment, co-workers are all team oriented people that are willing to share with others what it takes to advance in the Company. A very family friendly place to work. I enjoyed TWDC as my work was valued by management and co-workers alike.
The Walt Disney Company taught be so much and was such a great working environment.
