Approves of CEO

I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

This company offers a multitude of opportunities for people of any age and skill level. The people are fantastic, the jobs are fun, and you can learn so much everyday. Also, the benefits are really something!

Cons

It is a great place to work, but you have to expect to work long hours, and receive a little less pay than you would expect.

    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Guest interaction is great. Entertainment perks like getting in the parks for free and being able to get others in for free is the best perk. It is pretty easy to switch shifts if you need a break and during peak seasons you can get a lot of overtime if you want it.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. Being an intern, you do not get any insurance benefits. Also, the company housing for interns is not free. They take about $100/week out of your paycheck for rent and you share a room sometimes with more than one person. You can have up to 8 people in one apartment for 4 bed/4 bath. It can be pretty ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Give interns free housing!


  2. "Rich heritage, short on compensation, long on overreach."

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

    Pros

    Abundant discounts on park entry, merchandise, storied traditions and heritage. This place turns the timid into bears as a matter of survival, and very quickly overprepares you for anything and everything that could possibly happen in a corporate environment. Working here grants loads of personal interaction with highly ranking executives and the performance/appearance standards are sky high.

    Cons

    The flip side of the cons are that the environment is quite stressful, not as hire-friendly to those "from the outside" and sometimes, the promotional opportunities are sparse. Many have worked here since high school.
