I worked at Walt Disney Company as an intern (more than an year)

Pros

I loved working on the Jungle Cruise in Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World. My team was great. Most people I met really believed in Walt's dream and wanted to cultivate a feeling of enthusiasm and magic. It is fast paced and very safety oriented. I liked meeting so many friendly people everyday. I liked making magic. I liked free entrance in the parks.

Cons

It's a low pay for the toll it can take on your emotional health at the end of a bad day (heat, crazy guests, et c). However, I thought it was very much worth the effort.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I wished that upper management had tried to make a lasting connection between College Program kids, part-timers, and full-timers. There was definitely a division.

    I worked at Walt Disney Company as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. It's hard work but all the people I met were very nice. I had a wonderful team.

    Cons

    Though the people there were wonderful no matter how much they may like you if there isn't a position open seasonal work can't turn to full time. It's hard to get a job there. A lot of the people will tell you to work your way up to another position.

    I have been working at Walt Disney Company part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many different roles and skills to be gained. Also decent benefits including relatively good healthcare.

    Cons

    With such a large company it is easy to feel non-important and can easily make you go unseen.
