Pros

Everyone is happy to be there and enjoys making magic. We get the opportunity to really make an impact on people's lives every day.

Cons

We are open every day. If you are looking for a job where you get holidays off or a set schedule, this isn't it. Also, full-time employment is hard to come by.

Advice to Management

Head back towards the dream Walt had of more employees making a career out of working at the resorts than working part time. The more part time employees there are, the more the resorts become a temporary way station on the way to other jobs. People don't want transitory careers, but stability - especially nowadays.

    Pros

    Variety of roles, education opportunities, co-workers, being surrounded by talented people you wouldn't necessarily meet in a different industry, attention to safety for the Guest and over the years seeing this becoming a priority for their Cast Members also, free admission into the Parks

    Cons

    Rate of pay for many is lacking for what is expected of them (not so much as issue for my particular role)

    Advice to Management

    Pay rate for Cast Members on the frontline that deal with the Guests needs to be addressed, unlike the 'old days' if don't have a degree it's the perception amongst non-salaried Cast members that you don't have not as much of an opportunity to advance, no matter the years of experience. Bottom dollar/overextending the 'Disney' name has become more important over the last 15 yrs than taking care of your existing Cast i.e., rate of pay, Cast celebrations being cutting back, etc. which in turn has created a negative attitude amongst even the loyal Cast that has been with you for multiple years and otherwise love working there.
