Manager (Current Employee), Bristol – May 23, 2014
Pros: gym, bball court, intramural sports
Cons: benefits, low pay, not much job growth
You get pigeon holed into a position and then you get stuck- unless you're in one of the few departments that promotes just about every year. Then you get to watch your peers move up the chain while you toil away in mediocrity.
Cast Member/College Program Intern (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – May 22, 2014
Pros: other cast members
Depends on where you work and the people you work with. Both times I worked there I feel two different ways about it. The first time I was in Housekeeping, it was a lot of hard work but the pay was nice. The second time I was in attractions, it was really laid back but the pay wasn't all that great.
It always depends on your area and where you feel – more... you will go. But the Disney training will never leave you, I can tell you that. – less
Multimedia Designer (Current Employee), 1101 Flower St. Glendale Ca. – May 21, 2014
Very quick turnaround. Worked on many different projects and with many different people. Learned a lot about Management styles, and how to deal with certain personalities. Learned a ton about Consumer Products. The hardest part of my job was that it wasn't pushing my limits or creativity. The most enjoyable, meeting certain people and getting to build – more... specific relationships. – less
College Program Intern (Former Employee), Lake Buena Vista, FL – May 19, 2014
This job was an internship, so I can't speak about it a whole lot. The only reason I did not care for the job was because it was in Florida and I missed home. Everything else about working for Disney was great. They are strict, though!

Retail Sales Clerk at Tomorrowland (Current Employee), Anaheim, CA – May 15, 2014
Great place to work at for college students. A typical day working in retail is constantly interacting with guests and selling our products. I've learned to manage my time more efficiently, because during peak seasons, everybody is required to work full-time hours. Each complex is managed by different management teams. In the complex that I work, the – more... management team is great in terms of having operations in our complex run smoothly. The hardest part of the job is dealing with frustrated guests. For the most part, watching guests being happy is the most enjoyable part of this job. – less

Pros: good schedule, nice people, clean, not hard, good benefits
Cons: work some major holidays, peek season is a beast
I really enjoy my job my employees are fun and funny but we work hard and we get the job done. My supervisor is nice but not too nice.

CRM Program Associate (Current Employee), Orlando, FL – May 15, 2014
All in all, the people you meet at Disney are fantastic. The benefits were great, including free admission to the parks for you and Guests. The only negative is so many people want to work for Disney that advancement is difficult. Once people get to where they want to be, they’re not leaving, so moving up the corporate latter is a struggle.
A typical day of work can involve a wide variety of tasks or calls. We performed system validation in the morning to ensure that all of Disney's reservation and booking systems are ready for the start of business hours.
The management I worked with was great. I worked alongside some of them on side projects occasionally, and learned a lot from them. – more... The coworkers I had were really nice to work with, most of everybody really blends well together here.
The hardest part of the job is, hands down, the schedule. It rotates from 1st shift, to 2nd, to 3rd, then back to 1st. This could be difficult at times, but was also part of the most enjoyable part of the job. The rotating schedule also allowed for plenty of time off due to the transition period between weeks. – less
Leader (Former Employee), Anaheim, CA – May 13, 2014
You gain a lot of experience here. It is a great place to learn new trades. Management is mostly promoted within the company so there is definitely room to advance. The best part of the job is always meeting new people. Work schedule is horrible unless you have an excuse such as school, otherwise you will spend most of your free time during work to – more... look for shift trades. – less
