I thought Disney would be a positive place to work, was I mistaken. This is a factory job with a thin veneer of icing. You will work weekends, you will work nights, they will pressure you to achieve your optimum performance. I was a victim of harassment and discrimination at the hands of management. You get free admission to the parks, but there are occasional limitations on the dates you can attend.
Medical Volunteer (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – September 20, 2016
A typical day volunteering for Disneyland is very busy. There is tons of different positions available, the one i participated in was being part of a wonderful group of Medical Staff. The duties assigned there to me were very rewarding. I was amazed witnessing first hand the determination those runners had in finishing the marathon. We were there to provide emergency medical service to who ever needed it. That being in assisting with heat strokes, loss of consciousness, or and handing out OTC and NSAID medication. I had learned General First Aid in my medical college, but had not participated in assisting first hand with a real heat stroke situation till those days. So I definitely learned from those experiences. My team was amazing from the beginning to the end. We didn't only help runners in need, but also managed to unload all the wholesale ice bags from the trucks they came in. We crushed the ice and made it into smaller ice bags that were easy to wrap around the limbs of the runners in time for the Marathon to start. As far as any difficulties go, I would not label any in particular because i learned alot in the end. Every single drop of sweat was worth it because we got to help out many people. I feel that is most important. Making a difference in other people's lives is what fills me with joy. My team and I, volunteered for 3 days in a row. We received free entrance tickets for every day we volunteered. i left Disneyland feeling more confident about myself and professional medical skills.

Quick Service Food and Beverage (Former Employee) – Lake Buena Vista, FL – September 19, 2016
I worked in Quick Service in a restaurant in the Polynesian Resort. It was fast paced all the time since the restaurant was opened 24/7. I worked as cashier, counter and dining area. It was fun because you did something different everyday.
Hostess (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – September 17, 2016
Disney is an excellent company if you are the guest. If you are an employee, quit. The hours are ridiculous. You barely get any time off and not even two days a week off. They don't care if there's a catastrophic event preventing you from going to work like a seen tornado or a flood, it's not their problem, it's yours and you better show up to work. They are completely intolerant of you having a life problem and their managers don't even know what they are doing yet contribute to follow aound do your job for you which usually consists of them doings .05 percent of it "done". I never want to work for them ever again

Character Performer (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – September 13, 2016
Training was intensive and helpful. Guests were either extremely friendly or rude. While you have a character attendant, they are not always watching you since they have to keep an orderly line and answer guest questions. I left employment early due to a guest picking me up while in costume and dislocating my shoulder due to squeezing me like a teddy bear.
Free admission to parks
Large potential for injury/ little to no safety guaranteed
A world class restaurant and honored to work there
