Fun place to work, but poor management and compensation is inexcusable
Disneyland Resort Store Operations Working Lead (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – September 27, 2016
Disneyland is a great place to work for someone first entering the job force and who needs job experience. The experience you have dealing with the public is unlike anywhere else, and is a good resume blip.
However, the pay is minimum wage, even for hourly supervisors, and the hours are terrible and minimal - new hires often work less than 4 hours per week. Leads complete more work than many managers, yet receive very little in compensation.
The unfortunate fact is that Disneyland workers are a dime a dozen, easily replaceable, and how we are treated makes that painfully obvious. No matter the grievances brought up, the complaints are often ignored or pushed to the back burner, since it's easier to wait until you quit, than to address the issue.
Highly dramatic work area, regardless of the area you work in, and cast member morale is often very low because of it. The Resort motto may as well be "go ahead and complain, we have 100 people clamoring to take your spot."
