Health (with almost no deductible) can’t be the cost to the real world for a family. Vision, dental, dining, resort and merchandise discounts depending on length of employment, holidays discounts and gifts, 401k, PENSION which is unheard of now, 2 weeks sick time, discounts on special events.
Shocked when I left and how much health costs were out of pocket.

There is a serious lack of professionalism that occurs there. I was very unhappy with the way things went after being there two weeks. While I took my job seriously it seemed that the teenage/childish and idiotic behavior was too overwhelming for me and I wanted to leave. The hours were terrible (3:30-midnight for the entire third week I was there). Orlando is not a nice place if you have money and you will not get used to the environment. If you have experienced better things, it is not a good place to work, eat, sleep, and everything is about 40 minutes apart from one another. The prices of food and gas are more expensive so you have to drive further to discover better options. Sadly, I will miss the vacationers and feel sorry for anyone who has to come here to vacation now after knowing how Disney employees talk badly behind their backs, etc. I have been a vacationer for years and have given my time and money to this company only to discover they only care about money. It kills me as a previous business owner to think I wasted my efforts to come here and know that my favorite place to vacation treats there employees so badly. I am really disappointed. I am fresh to quitting so I have a real understanding of what it feels like to quit and why I am quitting which is why I am sharing this with those who understand real business.

About 2 weeks only because I took a bit to make my phone interview appointment it could take less if you schedule the interview earlier. I passed the web interview which was easy, not hard just be honest and not 5 mins after I passed they sent the notice for the interview.

It was definitely a life commitment, I feel like I committed my life to Disney and they didn't appreciate the fact that I went very far to be in the position I was in. On the other hand I was younger than I am now and I didn't have the life knowledge like I do now, and still learn everyday.

Those who are saying it’s optional there is such thing as mandatory over time. My regular schedule was five days a week but during the busy months I was scheduled for 6 days a week which came out to 48 hours a week. I even heard of some people doing 7 days a week for more than 2 weeks!

For the CEO? Iger is doing an amazing job! Keep in mind, the parks are magical. Don’t let any more magic sleep away. Not ever nook and cranny needs to be a selling point for merchandise.
