    Current Employee - Attractions Host in Anaheim, CA

    Pros

    The benefits are great! Getting into the park for free, sign ins, 40% merch during Holiday (nov.-feb) lots of friends, lots of jobs to do.

    Cons

    It's Disney, everyone wants to be here, I started off in Parking, and transferred over to Fantsyaland Attractions, Attractions are at the bottom of the totem pole! I make $9.33 an hour. And any of the better jobs are non-union, it's all a corporate game, half of the Legacy award recipients should not be Legacy Award recipients (on the other hand I've met so many wonderful Legacy recipients) with some moving up can be really fast, with others really slow, depending on if the managers like you. Fantasyland is a great land to be in. They say it's a great job if you don't like getting paid at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've grown so much as a person over a year and a half, working on my degree and I want to be in their PR dept. getting my first transfer was super easy. Schedulers do tend to play favorites all the time, but with my seniority I get my morning shifts and make a lot of hours in a week. Depends on the manager but I love mine at Fantasyland, great team! The upper management is great too! I totally support Bob Iger, but the pay for attractions needs to go up.

    Pros

    Happy, smart people to work with, average pay, pretty good benefits. Beautiful offices to work in. Downtown parking is paid for by the company in Seattle, though that varies from city to city.

    Cons

    Layoffs happen constantly and it shakes up the morale of the company. Do not work in Disney Interactive, most layoffs seem to come from that division in my experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employees to move up in their career by actively discussing and learning about other groups with open positions.
