You can learn alot from the company but it is hard to move up in the company. It is great expierence and if you are a people person as I am you will enjoy work. I just wish it was easier to move up in the company or more opportunites to move up in the company
Ride Operator, Hostess (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – February 19, 2017
We made magical moments for our guests and made sure every child left our rides smiling and if they were not we gave them a magical surprise. The most important part was having families thank me for helping them find a ride or letting them through Fast pass even when they didn't have one.
Cook 2, Line Cook (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – February 17, 2017
High volume, fast pace, excellent location to grow your skills as a cook. Many locations to explore and transfer to within all the parks to learn different cooking styles. Work hours are intense but they provide compensation for admission into parks. Work and home life balance is an area the employee must have discipline in. Pay can be low to start with but with time and the room for upward mobility it does improve.
Compensations, room for growth, variety of job experiences
Photopass Photographer (Former Employee) – Lake Buena Vista, FL – February 15, 2017
Management appears to care about their employees, but the company as a whole only cares about the bottom line. College interns are brought in as cheap labor and are worked to the bone at the expense of the part time and seasonal cast members who suffer as a result of fewer hours.
Sales Associate/Merchandising (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – February 15, 2017
Basically I was helping guests and hat writing on the Disney hats we sell at the parks. I learned that always smiling makes guests who are in a bad mood brighten up their day even if its only a little bit. I loved showing the guests what we sell and use the product to show how it works and how much fun it is.
Free meals sometimes, free pass into the park, play at work

Attractions Host (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – February 12, 2017
I love working at Disney, the environment is great and I love my coworkers but this place continues to increase prices but continues to pay its workers minimum wage when in the past, they used to pay more. They also make it seem like you will go somewhere if you stay with the company but it is 95% politics.
Cast Member (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – February 11, 2017
Excellent work place fun and easy staff to get along with work flow is a load but its fun overall meeting new people Work culture is diverse Working at Disney World teaches you the history of all the parks
Great experience and a lot of exciting interactions
Attractions Host (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – February 10, 2017
I believe that everyday at Disney is not at all a typical day at work because the entire experience is different than any other place of work. But what is the most exciting is that while you get to treat guests to "The Happiest Place on Earth" you get to experience a little bit of the world yourself as you see hundreds of cultures pass by and all of the practices they have that we don't and all the similarities we share. At times the work can be exhausting but remembering that we are there to make the guests happy more often than not will brighten your day and help you to bring a smile to the faces of those around you.
Park Greeter (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – February 10, 2017
It was a great place to learn what hospitality really is! It was a blast being a part of birthday parties, anniversaries, and engagements! I met so many people and had dozens of opportunities to help make the "Disney magic."
