I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts

Pros

Perks, free admission if you have the time. Discounts on housing, merchandise, food. Notoriety.

Cons

Not alot of free time. Advancement opportunities are there but hard to attain given the sheer volume of employees. Must enjoy Disney and job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more proactive in interacting with employees, get to know them, understand them, disney is about family on and off stage.

    I have been working at Disney Parks & Resorts

    Pros

    -MANY opportunities for advanced positions.
    -Many good employees to work with
    -Variety of jobs to do
    -Kept busy often
    -Days off are easy to obtain(for the most part)
    -They may ask you to leave early but the majority of the time, they will not force you to leave.

    Cons

    -Low pay for often very difficult work
    -Scheduling is often VERY difficult to work out
    -Very haphazard work hours
    -Sometimes 4-hour shifts
    -Management does not understand the complexities of the things they often ask you to do.
    -Often ridiculous rules make things more difficult for not just the cast member, but the guest as well.....and not for the better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make a concerted effort be considerate of cast members and assess deeply what rules you impose on cast members. And do not get mad when things don't go the way you want when you just made things 3x's as difficult
