It's a large company with a lot of cultures in one spot. The management in most places doesn't care about you only that they're not bothered to deal with guests and come out of their offices. The cast though seems to enjoy one another. If your not interested in advancement it's a great place. If you are, prepare for a lot of brown nosing.
Discounts and exciting to see what is behind the scenes

A typical day working at Walt Disney World was very long and intense, and is very full on. Management is very questionable, as the pay is low, and the hours and high. The hardest part is keeping up with the job energy and coping with management. The most enjoyable part however, is making magic for customers through the company's methods and ethics.

The job itself I absolutely love! The training was however the worst most stressful week of my life. I don't think I slept/ate the entire week from being so nervous and how much the job entails. Leadership has been great so far, very accommodating when they're able to be.

The coworkers were more often than not really good. We were close due to the amount of stress with the job and what you deal with as a team. The direct leads were always good, upper management was rarely ever around.

A typical day at work is pure chaos however for me its great, the challenge of the impossible "then doing it" is really rewarding. I learned that teamwork in Projects or any other line of business is essential, as well a great communication skills, I believe this to be the keys to success for any company . The workplace culture changed about 10 years ago however before that I couldn't wait to get to work and it was magnificent. The hardest part of the job was having to swallow your pride when you knew you were right and proceed in a different direction until it comes back around again (do it right the first time). The most enjoyable part of the job was the happiness I could bring to thousands of people every day and that for 25 years I made a positive difference in peoples lives all around the world. Can anyone ask for anything more enjoyable then that ?
