    I worked at Walt Disney Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have great benefits from health to park admission.

    Cons

    You're a number and they don't care about you. They over work you and take your days off away. They saw we all kept getting 6 day schedules and doubles but wouldn't hire more people so we would have a life. The pay is low.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about your employees and listen to them.

    The benefits, the history of the Company, the people, the products and experiences we create.

    Pros

    It's Disney, lots of hidden pros, store discount. Friendly atmosphere great as a part time if you want a small job with few hours

    Cons

    sales are everything
    send you home if it is slow to make up in sales
    if you close you will stay an hour to clean up and if you take longer than an hour its because you were not working efficiently although it doesn't matter who I worked with it always ended up taking extra time.
