It was a fun and magical environment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Calgary, ABJuly 24, 2014
Pros: amazinf discounts in the store as well as the parks.
A typical day at work for me involved making sure that the store is presentable and appealing to the eye of our guests as well as making each guest remember their disney experience. We do fun events throughout the day so we can interact with our guests and give them a disney experience outside the parks. I learned a lot about the disney culture and how the littlest things can make the biggest impact on people. My co-workers were always friendly and smiling and it gave me a sense of relief to know that I would be walking into such an amazing work place. The best part of my job (aside from it being the disney store) was that I got the opportunity to being surrounded by younger kids whose faces glowed as they entered and left the store and knowing that I made their day and magical one was definitely the best part of working here.

A really great place to work once you are a permanent employee
Sr. Mech. Designer (Former Employee), Glendale, CAApril 26, 2013
Pros: free coffee, cereal, and bagels
Cons: you are damned if your project goes over it's hours budget, even if you were assigned after the fact.
THey treat you like gold and give you a lot of creative freedom BUT its very hard to become a permanent employee and there is a lot of competition. Other than that, the work is stimulating and fun. The management has a good sense of comradarie.

Very inspirational and great properties to work with
Food, Health and Beauty Coordinator (Current Employee), Toronto, OntarioJuly 4, 2012
Pros: working for the best brand in the world and the co-workers.
Cons: small office and low growth opportunities chances.
Well, who doesn't like to work for Mickey and Minnie? The properties are great and have a huge legacy behind. I knew my position was not going to be a challenging one, but it motivates me to work for one of the most recognized brands of the world. The hardest part of the job was understanding I had to develop a low profile position and making the decision to leave and look for a more challenging position with great growth opportunities.

Lots of opportunity if you know the right people.
Coordinator of Merchandise/Trainer (Current Employee), Orlando, FLJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: park admission, merchandise discounts, complimentary family admission.
Cons: it's all who you know
Guest service and Safety are the top two basics that we stress each day. I have learned that it's all who you know that will help you move up in the company. They do care about their Cast Members. Some managers have become too comfortable in their role and need to be moved or held accountable for their actions.

The Disneyland Resort, need I say more?
Senior End User Computing Analyst (Former Employee), Anaheim, CAJanuary 20, 2015
Teamwork at its best with all aspects of IT resources and departments. Also great perks working at the Disneyland Resort. After major restructuring (outsourcing) IT teamwork became individual "it's not my job" silos. But working for Walt Disney Co was better than working for the outsource company.

Multiple Titles (Former Employee), Lake Buena Vista, FLJanuary 19, 2015
I had the unique experience of accepting an hourly position at a quick service food facility at the beginning of my Disney career. I studied the company and was excited to learn of the relative ease of moving from one position to another. Within the nine and a half years I was there, I worked for Parks and Resorts, Disney Cruise Line, and Disney Imagineering. This ability to design my unique career path is one of the best things about working for Disney.

Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee), Sales CoordinatorJanuary 15, 2015
Great Company, awesome perks,. Too many hoops to jump through for advancement, your merits are not taken into account. Its all about how much @3!! you kiss and egos you stroke. Hard work and dedication should be taken into account. Great cast members who do great things, leaders need to lead and truly develop from within instead of playing games,

Photopass Photographer (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJanuary 14, 2015
Who wouldn't like working in the place Where Dreams Come True? Working at Walt Disney World was overall an amazing experience. Sure there were some bad parts but I still walked away with nothing but good things to say. Each day was different because each day you encountered different guests from all over the world who had different stories and different perspectives of the world. The hardest part of the job was having to work outside for most of my days in August due to the heat but the management did a wonderful job at making sure we were taking care of ourselves.
