Sustainability Coordinator (Former Employee), Anaheim, CAFebruary 19, 2014
While Disney creates innovative and unique products, the business behind-the-scenes and office culture is traditional, conservative, and immune to change.

Character Performer (Current Employee), Orlando, FLFebruary 17, 2014
Pros: free disney tickets!
Cons: i really can't think of any.
A typical day is fun and rewarding, the people around me are friendly, and the management is helpful and everyone I've met seems to really love their jobs. It makes the work environment fun and happy. There's never a dull day, and even though some guests are a challenge, most of them keep me grinning the entire day.

Free entry to Disney World but low pay and long hours
Disney College Program Intern (Former Employee), Orlando, FLFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: able to go to walt disney world for free
Cons: long hours, low pay, expensive rent
Interns work about 40 hours a week, during the holidays it can go up to 60 hours a week. We were only paid $7.79 which did not cover the costs of rent, food, bills and personal expenses. Other than that, this internship is for the EXPERIENCE. Even though I was broke and tired all the time, I had a wonderful time, and I love Disney. If you love Disney, – more... Pixar, and Disney World apply for this internship. – less

Quick Service Cast Member (Former Employee), Orlando, FLFebruary 8, 2014
It is one of the greatest companies to work for. The company creates an environment to learn and grow. The leaders treat everyone as individuals and they are open to learn just as much as the front line Cast Members are.

Merchandiser (Current Employee), Orlando, FLFebruary 4, 2014
Pros: benefits, scheduling, and team members.
Cons: guests, parking, late shifts.
Overall a great place to work. Not being able to park on property is a con, but a small one. Works well with your other schedules, but you do get some late shifts. Benefits are great, like getting into the parks for free. Obvious job security, possibility for advancement, but sort of rare. Management team is great, with a few exceptions.

Resort Transportation & Parking Cast Member (Former Employee), Anaheim, CAJanuary 28, 2014

Working at Walt Disney was one of the best job experiences I've had so far. The best part is that everyone really is like one big team, there is a good mix of seasoned experienced workers and constant newcomers. So , everyone really new how to help others out and make sure things got done on time and the way they were supposed to get done.
