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 – more... to leave and look for a more challenging position with great growth opportunities. – less

Excellent Company
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Glendale, CAOctober 16, 2014
Pros: free tickets to parks
Cons: never enough time in day to complete everything
A typical day at work would be handling expatriate tax inquiries by the participating employee, tax authority or vendors and fellow employees. Each day brings new challenges and a variety of tasks at hand. Preparing accounting related reports, deposits, coding check requests, deposits and receivables all dominate your day.

It's nice to get into the parks for free.
Outdoor Foods Cast Member- College Program (Former Employee), Hollywood StudiosOctober 16, 2014
Pros: free entrance to the parks, free passes for family members, merch discount

The College Program is great for some people. You get to meet people from all over the world, but you also only get federal minimum wage in most cases. We all know that isn't enough money.

Job was "Magical" for only so long..
Worldphile Agent/ Ecommerce & Technical Support (Former Employee), Tampa, FLOctober 16, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: short lunches, constant overtime, fight to have holidays off.
Daily tasks would range from technical support on the phone for the Walt Disney World website, to live chat which consisted of sales as well as customer service.

Management is pretty decent and my co-workers were some of the best people I've ever worked with.

Hardest part of the job was the mandatory overtime. I didn't have a problem with working – more... overtime, but when you have to squeeze 15 additional hours in a three day span, it makes the work life balance difficult.

Best part, aside from the benefits, was the ability to make a customers day by solving their problem. I had the ability to take an escalated call (angry guest) and have them happy by the end. – less

Great place to work, but the management is horrible.
Disney Store Sales Associate (Current Employee), Tucson, AZOctober 15, 2014
Pros: guests are great. love doing the events.
Cons: poor management. very unprofessional.
I currently work at the Disney Store at the tucson mall. I used to work for The Disneyland Resort in California and relocated to Arizona. The first couple months of working here were the best. I saw so much potential for working her. It was like a little piece of the resort but in The desert. Little by little I saw the true colors of the management – more... team. They are very unprofessional. I honestly feel like I am in high school again. I would not reccomend anyone to work here till a new management team is there. And it's such a disappointment because working for the resort was the absolute best time of my life and now working at this store it's the absolute worst. – less
