World Entertainment Staging Specialist (Current Employee), Kissimmee, FloridaJuly 6, 2014
Pros: great benefits! wonderful team and a fun atmosphere
Cons: very conflicting hours - overnight rehearsals and a low income
A typical day at work insists of watching and critiquing the shows throughout property. Along with the monthly rehearsals - teaching the choreography, blocking and scripts for each show. Not only does a staging specialist dance and teach, we also document information, keep logs of notes and information, create books with all of the show information, – more... work along side the management/technician/costuming/cosmetology team. It is also our responsibility to make sure each rehearsal is run smoothly and in a timely manner. Making sure all information is given clearly and efficiently.
The hardest part of the job is when we get last minute shows and are expected to present them to the guests quickly. We make it work however it is very stressful yet fun!
I continue to learn and meet new people in this role. There is always something new - new choreography, new shows, new documents to create, new programs to learn about, etc. – less

Oh this was the greatest working experience I have ever done. I learned management styles, thinking, and what it's like to work 16 hours a day for $5.00 a hour- and so I finished college. :)

Amazing Enviorment
Cast Member, College Internship Program (Former Employee), Animal KingdomJune 15, 2014
Working for the Walt Disney Company as part of the Disney College Program was the best experience of my life. Working with and meeting people from all over the world is just something I never thought I would be a part of! For the year I was there, it was some of the greatest moments in my life! Working at Strollers at Animal Kingdom may sound horrible – more... and boring but it was far from that! It was a blast working there. I made friendships and memories that I will never forget! – less

Wonderful place to work
GUEST RELATIONS HOSTESS (Current Employee), Orlando, FLJune 9, 2014
I really enjoy working at the Walt Disney Company. Over the years I've worked in various roles within the company and have come to understand that you don't necessarily work at Disney because of the people, but because you simply love Disney. Management in some locations are great, while others not so great, it's pretty much luck of the draw. Co-workers – more... become like your family because you all put up with the same stuff on a daily basis. But ultimately my favorite thing about the job was being able to make magic for guests. – less

A Magical Experince
Disney College Program (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJune 4, 2014
Pros: free admission, disney discount on like everything, free tickets for friends
Cons: short breaks, harsh schedule, demanding hours
Working at WDW changed everything I do now. I'm so much more into detail and making everything have meaning in my life. It also was a challenge living in Florida for almost a year with no friends and family having to figure out everything by myself but I have proven to be stronger than I could have even imagined while living and working here. It taught – more... me real world experience in my future career, my degree field , and my personal life. It changed my life forever – less

Pigeon Holed
Manager (Current Employee), BristolMay 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.

DisneyWorld…
Cast Member/College Program Intern (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMay 22, 2014
Pros: other cast members
Cons: guests
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
