    Former Employee - Guest Service Manager in Lake Buena Vista, FL

    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Supportive, Opportunities for personal growth in your career interests, as an hourly - can change work locations every 6 months, as a manager - diversity in responsibilities, numerous volunteer opportunities and to get involved into areas you support. Empowered to make decisions to assist your guest, life-time memories as you create a positive impact on guests vacations.

    Cons

    As a manager, long hours, inconsistent shifts, little balance. Personal development is independent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the individual manager, regardless of level, for their personal development and need to change work locations to keep challenging themselves and diversify their experience.
