Great workplace for college students
Retail Sales Clerk at Tomorrowland (Current Employee), Anaheim, CAMay 15, 2014
Great place to work at for college students. A typical day working in retail is constantly interacting with guests and selling our products. I've learned to manage my time more efficiently, because during peak seasons, everybody is required to work full-time hours. Each complex is managed by different management teams. In the complex that I work, the – more... management team is great in terms of having operations in our complex run smoothly. The hardest part of the job is dealing with frustrated guests. For the most part, watching guests being happy is the most enjoyable part of this job. – less

Pros: good schedule, nice people, clean, not hard, good benefits
Cons: work some major holidays, peek season is a beast
I really enjoy my job my employees are fun and funny but we work hard and we get the job done. My supervisor is nice but not too nice. She helps me out when i need and she does what she can to look out for us. she doesn't show favoritism to any of us. management do what they can to make the work area as comfortable as possibly. the pay is ok but it – more... not enough for me at the moment. thats why im look for a second job. Ive been working here for almost 3 years and i do see myself a this job longer. all in all its a GOOD job. – less

Friendly People, good benefits
CRM Program Associate (Current Employee), Orlando, FLMay 15, 2014
All in all, the people you meet at Disney are fantastic. The benefits were great, including free admission to the parks for you and Guests. The only negative is so many people want to work for Disney that advancement is difficult. Once people get to where they want to be, they’re not leaving, so moving up the corporate latter is a struggle.

Productive and fast growing department.
Service Operations Analyst (Current Employee), Orlando, FLMay 14, 2014
Pros: rotating schedule allowed for plenty of time off, ample opportunities for overtime, great amount of learning experiences.
Cons: inconsistent schedule, limited employment period.
A typical day of work can involve a wide variety of tasks or calls. We performed system validation in the morning to ensure that all of Disney's reservation and booking systems are ready for the start of business hours.

The management I worked with was great. I worked alongside some of them on side projects occasionally, and learned a lot from them. – more... The coworkers I had were really nice to work with, most of everybody really blends well together here.

The hardest part of the job is, hands down, the schedule. It rotates from 1st shift, to 2nd, to 3rd, then back to 1st. This could be difficult at times, but was also part of the most enjoyable part of the job. The rotating schedule also allowed for plenty of time off due to the transition period between weeks. – less

You gain a lot of experience here. It is a great place to learn new trades. Management is mostly promoted within the company so there is definitely room to advance. The best part of the job is always meeting new people. Work schedule is horrible unless you have an excuse such as school, otherwise you will spend most of your free time during work to – more... look for shift trades. – less

Enjoyable place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Camarillo, CAMay 10, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of stocking shelves, greeting guests, working the cash register, and making sure store looked clean and neat.
I learned a lot about retail and how it works. I obtained knowledge in how to stock shelves and work the cash register.
The management was great here! I had a good relationship with all my managers.
My co-workers – more... were also great!
The most difficult part of this job was learning the cash register.
The most enjoyable part of this job was that I got to be around children and Disney products all day. – less

Warehouse Receiver (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMay 6, 2014
Pros: time flew
Cons: during the night.
A typical night of work was set al the pallets down and make sure that we had everything ready to get the merchandise in the right pallets.

No place like Disney, I LOVED it.
Photopass Photographer - Internship (Former Employee), Lake Buena Vista, FLApril 23, 2014
Pros: great management, fun enviroment, great benefits, ( i could go on forever)
Cons: takes a long time to advance in the company
Working for The Walt Disney Company has been the best experience of my life and I regret leaving everyday.

Though I do hear it is hard to advance in the company, and that it takes over a year to become full time.

I was a photographer and could almost work as many hours as I wanted, up to 16 hours a day ( double shifts) But I enjoyed every moment. – more... I made enough money to support myself.

There are great benefits like, getting into the parks for free, parks open early for cast members for special occasions, discounts, and some other magic moments that guests don't get to experience.

The best part about the job is sharing and creating the magic for guests. And knowing that you have made someones experience so enjoyable. – less
