    Pros

    It's a great learning environment and looks awesome on a resume. Silver Passes are awesome.

    Cons

    You're always made to feel like you're about to be laid off. Can be quite heartless. Hard to get promoted. Many people leave and then come back to get raises.

    Pros

    Great Place to work at.
     Awesome commissary for lunch.
     Nice discounts on pretty much anything to do with Disney
    Free theme park tickets(DLR,WDW,DL'Paris,DL'Hong Kong)
     Good start pay over $12p/h

    Cons

    Part-time (On-Call)
    Limited hours per week, sometimes no hours
    limited growth with in the Dept.
    Union Dues and initiation fees are too high for a (Part-time "on-call") position
    No Silver Pass

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be nice to have minimum pay when "on-call" and not used.
    Example if on call for a day and not "used" pay 1.5Hrs because one was on duty to be possibly used.
