    Pros

    It's a great place to meet many people from all walks of life, the corporate culture can't be compared to other jobs I have/had. At the end of the day I am happy to work for this company and making positive guest experiences.

    Cons

    Management keeps changing every 6 months or so, I am seasonal and working a couple months out of the year there's always new managers on the team. I have well over 10 managers who I rarely see during shifts so it makes me question what they are actually doing on a day-to-day basis. Working in the sun is horrible but I knew what I signed up for but just wish that I was in the sun less than 3 hours at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Visit cast members during the day, every time I see a manager coming up to me I feel like I am in trouble because I never see them often.
