If you were in charge, what would you do to make The Walt Disney Company a better place to work?
At Magic Kingdom, the hours need to be more realistic, especially for interns. Shifts should never exceed 12 hours. Hours per week should never exceed 50. It should be way easier for people to request a day off to see family.
What would you suggest The Walt Disney Company management do to prevent others from leaving?
Give all employees a 7 percent pay increase. The company is adding benefits as payment which does not make them benefits at all.
It’s broken down into 2 parts. the web-based interview which is pretty much a repetitive personality test, you get 50 seconds to answer multiple choice questions about how you feel about certain scenarios regarding your personality, etc. then 20 seconds to answer questions based on a strongly disagree — strongly agree. upon passing it, some people get the next step on the same screen which is the phone or in person interview (i had the option to either interview in person or over the phone), or you’ll get a screen saying thank you for participating and you’ll hear back from them within 7 business days. i got the second option; but dont panic like i did!! they’ll most likely reach other to you in the next 10 minutes because i got the other option for the second interview right after through email.
the phone or in person interview really varies throughout person or company needs. they called me surprisingly on an actually unblocked number, and she was pretty much going over my work experience, which to take into aspect i have previous amusement park experience, and then we got down to the nitty gritty. she pretty much asked where was my heart at, where did i truly want to work and i told her attractions. she explained the role to me and was like well if you want this then you might have to wait 2-3 weeks until someone transfers out or whatever the case may be. i wanted to but then i was thinking.. 2-3 weeks or 2-3 months!! so she suggested another role that was needed asap for employees and i just took that. i did my onboarding that same day and i have my traditions class coming up. whole process took about a month from when i applied up until my processing.
The best part of working in Magic Kingdom was the atmosphere. I saw the castle every day. I talked to happy guests every day. I felt the sunshine and the fresh air every day.
What advice would you give the CEO of The Walt Disney Company about how to improve it?
Reconsider your approach to selling alcohol in the parks. It takes away from the meaning of Disney. It is so much more than drinking. I understand selling alcohol at sit down restaurants but the quick serve alcohol stands are very disappointing. Disney isnt about that. Walt would shut the place down if he could see how it is now.
