Internship (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 17, 2017
It was crazy being an intern because get a ton of hours, which is nice to make money, but made it impossible to get a day off because we aren't allowed to give shifts away, we must trade. And we worked mostly 6 days a week. But making guests happy is all worth it!
Character Attendant (Former Employee) – Lake Buena Vista, FL – October 17, 2017
I plead the 5th. Beware once you see how the sauage is made you cant unsee it. Would not reccommend especially their college program. College kids over worked and wages taken for rent paid to the disney company.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 17, 2017
Everyday I cleaned every room they give me and helped what's guest needs. The most I enjoyed the job was to see every smile of the children arriving at Disney and to know that I was part of their happiness.
This was just an internship but I have never worked so hard!!!
Internship (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 17, 2017
Days were long. pay was 6.30 at the time. The longest that I worked was 13 HOURS in the heat! I almost passed out because I spent 3 hours in strollers with no water or break. It was at least 100 degrees that day with no shade. Management was awful to College Program Students. We would be scheduled to do something with the program that was mandatory and the Attraction Managers would mark you late or call you into the office saying that we had lied about where we were because they saw me with a donut...well I had the donut because they gave us breakfast at our mandatory meeting.
Orlando - Operations Cast Member (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 17, 2017
It was a treasure working with the mouse. It was surely the best job i have ever had. Working there was a dream come true, much like they say. I would give anything to go back and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the theme park life. Management was mainly good regardless of how stressful things got. There was times when even the management jumped in to assist and give us a hand with anything we needed, from guest situation to cleaning and everywhere in between.
Lots of hours pretty much whenever you want them. Good perks.
Pay could a little higher not much more but more would be nice.
Lead Steward (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – October 17, 2017
Working for Disneyland is fun. Working as someone who the guests see is even better. I manage the back of the kitchen so I am always cleaning and making sure everything is organized , working and running smoothly. Very tiring but fun job.
Lead Banquet Captain (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 16, 2017
I learned a lot about banquet services at The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin. The leaders openly shared information and the teams worked very well together. I enjoyed the 27 years I spent working there.
Concierge (Former Employee) – Lake Buena Vista, FL – October 16, 2017
Every day was different and exciting. I was part of a small team that ran the VIP Center facility hosting 200+ meetings per year. My main objective was to engage with the visiting employees, customers and guests making sure their short visit with us was memorable and when possible creating a magical experience.
The most enjoyable part of the job was making the families feel that they were special and creating a memorable visit to the center. When families returned year after year, it was like seeing old friends.
Management was excellent. Open door policy and everyone worked together despite varying age differences.
Lead (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – October 15, 2017
Disney can be a great place to work, but it's not for everyone. Advancement can be tough, especially if you start off in Park Operations. Benefits are decent and the vacation and sick pay is great if you are Full Time. The low pay is the most common reason for employees leaving the company.
College Program Internship (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 15, 2017
I love my job, every day is a new experience. In my time there i have learned to deal with guest in a better and more efficient manner, that the guest is always right, and also that team work makes the dream work. The hardest part of the job is balancing out everything you have to do but is also the most enjoyable, you are doing so many things at one trying to make everything happen for a guest and at the end of the day they appreciate all you do for them and that makes it all worth it.
internship (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 14, 2017
Its a great place, if you get a good area. Where I was located was super slow, and didn't get enough hours to be able to pay my bills [which is why I left.]
For the internship they either work you to death or not at all. Sadly i would have taken the work to death, but with the internship you are not allowed to change areas or roles unless it's a health reason they see fit.
It was an internship and I met great people from all over the world and it was fun
College Program Intern (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 13, 2017
I did this in college and received college credits for doing this. I worked at MGM and Animal Kingdom. I followed around upper management and received management experience. I also took classes that were business focused.
Met great people from all over the world and free park admission
had to share an apartment with 5 other people, sometimes the work got boring
