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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Health benefits and educational reimbursement.

    Cons

    Culture and difficult senior management. Everything has to be blessed by at least four or more people, including people who have no seniority or expertise in what you do.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to set the example for collaboration and team work and then enforce it.
