    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Half of the guests are polite, kind, and really grateful to even have questions answered. There are special needs guests and their families that are super grateful when you can really make their experience the best possible. You'll get plenty of hours, if you are willing to work different attractions or positions. They do provide training and a good set of programs for moving up in their workforce.

    Cons

    Starting pay is low. If you're not good friends with a scheduler or manager, you're going to get all the crappy shifts at first, including every day on weekends and holidays. I worked Christmas, Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day in my first year for the company, while a girl who was hired with me and dating a scheduler didn't have to work any of them. Politics play a HUGE part in who is selected as a trainer or lead, and despite months of effort I was never selected because I was not into kissing someone's butt. There's a ton of drama with the college kids that work there, including their bad friendships and relationships and gossip.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training or flexibility in attraction choice for cast members. When I was hired in to work a certain attraction, I was trained at that attraction and then nobody there would even talk to me, they were so worked up in the friendships they already had. You guys let the 'cool' kids get away with anything, basically, just because they've been there a while or are peppier than the rest, while newer hires get ignored and don't feel welcomed into the parks.


  2. "Fantastic company, great culture, and great Park benefits for families"

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to move around, with the company valuing a wide perspective. Benefits for families are wonderful, and people sometimes jump around segments as well.

    Cons

    Generally the salaries are below market, somewhat balanced by the benefits, but only somewhat. Occasionally slow to move based on decision by committee approach.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate salary guidelines. The brand will attract people, but the lack of competitive compensation will erode your talent base over time.
