Job was political to say tge least. Either you are in or out. There is no gray. Premise that was intended left years ago. Happy place, experience happy, promote happy;and we'll provide you with neccessary tools to promote happy-yeah use to be. Ambitions of others, some feeling lack of job security, opportunities to advance to other levels of success and arenas(explore other job roles-lessend based on supervisory vision for there own futures.just to name a few faults). So if you dream of fair honest feel good opportunity to advance as high as you can climb... good luck at WDW.
Pros
Park admission, volunteer opps, training in desired areas of employment-some license assist.
Cons
Health care horrible, mgmt teams don't support staff/crew, demands are unrealistic

Loved "making magic" and seeing smiles on guests' faces. But when a ride broke down for whatever reason you really saw the worst in people. Management does not stand up for their peons... I mean, cast members.
Pros
Guest sign in privileges on a some days
Cons
Benefits (pay or perks) continuously shrink every year

Good company to work for. Benefits great. Hard to move into management unless you are backed so smoozing with managers is a good thing. Great retirement job or first job. Not great to work or live in Orlando if trying to raise a family

It is a variety of posts and locations to work, in a theme park. There is opportunity for growth, training, and job shadowing. Many different fields to learn about.

I love what I do and who I work for. During this crisis they were helpful and caring. The situation is out of my control and theirs, and I know they want to bring all their cast back. But the reality is that as right now things have change in the hospitality industry. And they do not know when i will be back or if i will be back. I can not wait until all money has run out to find something else.
Pros
Days off together
Cons
None

I have held multiple positions at Disney for a little over 3 years and each one provided me with a great and positive work environment that I have not found anywhere else. Depending on your position you will also get amazing benefits, such as excellent medical insurance and many hours of paid sick and vacation leave. All of their positions will include really fun perks like unlimited access to their theme parks and multiple entrances for your friends and family. They are very strict but also very reasonable, so you definitely want to do the best job you can.
Pros
A positive work environment and fun perks.
Cons
Difficult to maintain a healthy work/life balance.

Working at WDW is fun cuz of the guest and coworkers. Management is useless and brainless, have no clue what the job really is. Executive decisions are illogical and a waste of time and energy.
Pros
nice insurance
Cons
management is a waste of time and money

Working for Disney was an experience for sure. It is so fast paced and you will be living with 6 people in a 3 bedroom apartment If that's what you choose.

When Disney parks were founded, they were meant to be a place where people could escape the pressures of real life and be thrust into the worlds of their favorite stories. Now, the company puts pressure on its employees to put into practice things that are focused more on revenue than giving people a good experience. As the price of tickets, merchandise, and food go up, there is minimal advancement available for the majority of the people who work The hardest to provide quality entertainment

Easy to work at. Unfortunately, after a 35 year management career outside of Disney, I find that suggestions to improve and streamline are pretty much ignored or managers take credit for the improvement. Many if the managers are on a power trip. I have personally over the past 20 years had to save my job on my own as they ignored the Union reps.
