Great as a temporary part-time job
Disney Attractions Cast Member (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – April 22, 2017
If you're looking for a summer job this is it. If you're looking for a way to build your career, you're in for a long hard climb to the top. Immediate management team varies depending on your exact work location in the park, but tend to be good. Management any higher up doesn't know who you are. Can be physically very draining and tends to make your whole life revolve around the parks. Pays a little above minimum wage, but annual raises are the same for all employees at the same level and pay increases with promotions are small. Can get health benefits after working part-time for 3 years or if you achieve full-time status, but you may have to work that long just to get full-time. Everyone is hired in as part-time. Scheduled according to seniority. Work there for at least a year and you will be worked just under the number hours that would qualify you for full-time. Disney will expect you to work your schedule around them. Breaks and lunches are very strictly clocked. Fifteen minutes per break and thirty minutes for lunch (you must use this time to actually go get your lunch too).
Seeing behind the scenes, happy guests, discounts and coupons, employee appreciation events
short breaks and lunches, angry guests, technical difficulties, difficult to advance, inflexible schedule
