    Pros

    Great perks and benefits, co-workers and managers always friendly and considerate

    Cons

    Avoid being a lifeguard at all costs! Disney is very overly-critical of their lifeguards and most people hate the role.

    Pros

    The personal and friends/family sign-ins are an amazing perk. Discounts on merchandise, food, and hotels are great too. I love my job and I love being able to make happiness and magic for the guests. No two days are the same, even if you plan them to be. Time flies while I am at work and I have a ton of fun! I love going to work everyday!

    Cons

    THE PAY. My department is unionized (a lot of them are) and you start out a few cents over minimum wage no matter what your experience is, and we increase 3% each year. I haven't been able to move up as quickly as I had imagined. Parking S-U-C-K-S and it is just getting worse.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those who run the operation every single day - they know what they are doing and what will work best.
