    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work, not feel like you are stuck in an office all day. Can be great if you get on a team of managers that you enjoy working with.

    Cons

    Long shifts with not always a lot of time between shifts. Managers get shifted around, so may find yourself leaving a location you enjoy, being placed into a location that you do not enjoy.

    Advice to Management

    Your managers are not numbers, stop shifting them all around if they are happy where they are and are still producing good work.

    I have been working at Disney Parks & Resorts part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Everyone is happy to be there and enjoys making magic. We get the opportunity to really make an impact on people's lives every day.

    Cons

    We are open every day. If you are looking for a job where you get holidays off or a set schedule, this isn't it. Also, full-time employment is hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Head back towards the dream Walt had of more employees making a career out of working at the resorts than working part time. The more part time employees there are, the more the resorts become a temporary way station on the way to other jobs. People don't want transitory careers, but stability - especially nowadays.
