      Pros

      - Meet amazing people - Get to experience the parks with guests and wow them with knowledge - Often times become part of our Guests family - Dining card, so meals are taken care of - set days off - good pay w/ tips - Allot of pride in work - Work with fun intelligent, passionate people - Management tries

      Cons

      - Very physically draining - Long hours - unpredictable shifts, often with very little to no notice - Office politics and favoritism - Difficult for management to see performance - Scheduling and getting requested days off can be a pain - Cast from other areas often misunderstands our job and will treat you unfairly or call the office to "tell" on you untruthfully and management has nothing else to go by since they are not in the "field" - Rules enforced for some cast but overlooked for others - Guests expectations often set too high and they get upset about occasionally waiting in line
