    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great discounts! Free admission! Good quality healthcare!

    Cons

    Treated like a unit of labor and not like a human being. Low pay! Long hours because the company doesn't want to hire more people. Hours and work times are not consistent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating cast-members as units of labor and treat them like humans! Stop worrying so much about shareholder equity and pay your cast members better. Happy cast members = happy guests.
