    Pros

    I really enjoyed the inclusiveness I felt from day one. I immediately received a benefits package, and they were ready for me to start on my first day... little things like my Email, Corporate Card, etc were laid out and ready to go! Many companies let you start and it takes weeks to feel like they want you there!

    Cons

    Within the office I worked in, my manager and I didn't see eye-to-eye. It wasn't a personal thing, and not even a fault on the manager... we just had different management styles.

    Pros

    This a very fun job. Fun to talk to guest from different parts of the world. Awesome getting to enjoy the park as a guest for free.

    Cons

    Summer is not so fun because the sun is too hot you might just melt, pay is not very good like 8.15 per hour but yes its a good job to start with to just put your foot on the door

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more water fans at every slide op stand, help then enjoy the work they are doing without worying about the sun

    It's at times easy to get lost in the shuffle or feel like you are making a difference in such a big corporation with so many employees.
