Great place to work with if the department you work in has very fair, organized, respectful managers
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAAugust 19, 2018
Working at disney can become very stressful and horrible because the people in my department who are in higher positions such as leads and manages aren't very respectful nor professional. They pick favorites, treat their cast members horribly, and don't let anyone excel within the department. A typical day at disney depends on the season. I work as a cashier in the front of the location and in the back, depending where i'm scheduled I work within a group of cast members in a fast paced environment where everything is organized, clean and structured. During the holidays expect to work full 8 hours shifts and late breaks and for mostly everyone to call out and make everything stressful. You get lucky if scheduling works with your school schedule too.
Pros
Benefits, sign ins
Cons
A lot more.

Culinary Intern (Former Employee) –  ESPN world wide of sportsAugust 15, 2018
The college internship is impeccable. The hours and pay aren't the greatest, but the people you meet along the way make it all worth it. The greatest pleasure of all was the opportunity to explore the parks, meet the characters, and see the real magic at work.
