Former Employee - Character Performer in Orlando, FL

I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Benefits (park tickets, discount on and off property, exclusive offers, staff appreciation)
Duties of the job (entertaining guests all day cannot be classified as "work")
Family atmosphere
Professional Opportunities (workshops/auditions, networking events, career advancement)
Team work

Cons

"Seasonal" status and getting "capped" hours
Hourly rate (fur vs. face vs. show/parade)
Seniority above all (over talent, hard work, etc)
Sometimes you feel like a number and not a person

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The managers should remain fair and open to all and not have favorites, otherwise, keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Disney Parks & Resorts part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Disney all in all is a wonderful place to work at and there a MANY opportunities to advance, and a variety of jobs to choose from. Benefits are amazing, one can never complain about the discounts! Disney can be pretty flexible with people's schedules and it is easy to find someone who knows the answer to whatever your doubt may be.

    Cons

    It's a huge company so it's easy to get overlooked and in some places it lacks organization. I guess it is kind of expected but you would think that they it would have set a much higher standard by now.
