Pleasant work environment at Disney Vacation Club Marketing
Print/Production Procurement Specialist (Former Employee), Orlando, FLAugust 8, 2014
Highly experienced team with very good leaders. Team members accomplished the work that should have been done by 10x more people. Everyone in the department was very supportive of each other and there were no egos. Everyone does what they need to, to get the project done, no matter how big or small. The attitude is as a result of the supportive management – more... team. – less

(DAK) Custodial and Guest Services (Former Employee), Orlando, FLAugust 7, 2014
Pros: very good benefits, work amenities, scheduling, and management.
Cons: you've got to stand out or you'll be lost in the crowd of cast members eaisly.
I worked Custodial Guest Services at Disney's Animal Kingdom. One thing I thoroughly enjoyed about my role was that it was a Global Role. This meant I could work at any park I wanted even though I was an Animal Kingdom Cast Member... provided I could find a shift to trade for or pick up. Management is rarely in your hair unless procedures aren't being – more... followed and for the most part, you manage your own work habits and even your entire schedule if you'd like. The work hours could be extraordinarily long during peak park times of the year as well. A regular animal Kingdom shift would run between 9-13.5 hours. If there was an event that night and you were selected to work, expect to add an extra 5-7 hours to your shift. The events though were very fun if you could get past being tired. We had a very good management Cast during my time there. The MK West and DAK Management teams were some of the most helpful and guiding individuals I have ever met. Primary duties of the job included keeping the park in Show Ready Condition, providing Information to Guests (CUSTODIAL IS THE FRONT LINE OF GUEST SERVICE), and entertainment through Water Art which is pretty awesome. – less

Very fun place, quite magical and unique!
ATTRACTIONS HOST (Former Employee), Orlando, FLAugust 7, 2014
Pros: atmosphere, management team, co-workers, fringe benefits
Cons: summer heat!
A typical day at Splash Mountain was very busy, very lively, and very enjoyable! It is arguably the most popular attraction at the Magic Kingdom, and therefore was an environment wherein the Guests were very upbeat, enthusiastic, and happy, all of which made for a workplace which was equally so, and I always looked forward to going to work there each – more... day. The management team was very accessible for concerns, as well as very responsive to any concerns, and would make time if necessary to hear out whatever your issue was; co-workers were very capable, competent and fun to work with, and the role itself encouraged having fun as long as no safety rules were being violated. The hardest part of the role was simply the volume of knowledge required to be learned, as this role involved knowing 16 different positions, as well as complete knowledge of the Mountain’s geography itself (15 different doors) as well as the most efficient means of egress when necessary…the most enjoyable was the endlessly entertaining Guest interactions, being able to make someone’s day better by making Magic Moments for them, and the camaraderie forged with my fellow Cast (in other words, just being there was great!) – less

Front of House Floor Manager (Current Employee), Anaheim, CAJuly 30, 2014
Pros: fun, exciting, new every single day
Cons: low pay and horrible hours and drive for me at this time!
It is a great company to work for, but there is little to no room for advancement. The union is both good and bad. We are set at a cap off point on pay scale and once reached that is it, you are maxed out. I love being in the floor manager position and I have learned a lot.

Receiving Supervisor (Former Employee), Jonesville, SCJuly 29, 2014
Pros: great place to work.
Cons: 7 days, 12 hours a week usually from october to mid december.
I loved my employment at Disney. The only reason I left this position is that the company closed the Distribution Center and relocated it to Memphis, TN

I began as a returns processor. I processed the returned merchandise back into the inventory system. I began this position in Feb. 1999 and by June 1999, I was the Lead Person in this department.

By – more... December 2000, I was promoted to the Returns, Receiving, Quality Control and Item Prep Supervisor.

I was responsible for 25 personal on a yearly basis and during the peak season this number could climb to over 100.

In Receiving, I was responsible for receiving and processing all incoming merchandise into the inventory system.

Also a portion of the incoming merchandise was sent to your Quality Control area. The merchandise was examined to ensure that Disney's standards were meet.

If an item need additional preparations to be placed in inventory to ship out to customers, then the item prep department processed the items before they were stocked in inventory. – less

Account Executive (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJuly 21, 2014
I had a lot of fun working at ESPN Radio. I made a lot of great friends. It was my first real sales job, and I learned a lot from everybody there.

One of my fondest professional memories is the planning and execution of the ESPN Radio Mini Open. We worked very hard to make the day a success for both the station and the client.

Disney Store Stock/Sales Associate (Former Employee), El Centro, CAJuly 21, 2014
Pros: the workplace, friendly management, and flexibility with hours
Cons: not too many hours
Everyday was always a new, unique experience. I learned how to stock, replenish/refill shelves as well as valuable customer service skills. The managers were very friendly and very helpful. My co-workers each had their pros and cons but overall they always did their best to give the customers a great experience. The hardest part would be on the days – more... the store was lonely, it would make the day seem slow. Odd right? Anyways my most enjoyable part of the job was opening, even though I only opened a few times. Why? Because every time we opened we would have a special little "opening ceremony" with customers (the children mostly) and it would always bring a smile to their face. That to me is priceless, because I had the chance to make someone happy. – less

World Entertainment Staging Specialist (Current Employee), Kissimmee, FloridaJuly 6, 2014
Pros: great benefits! wonderful team and a fun atmosphere
Cons: very conflicting hours - overnight rehearsals and a low income
A typical day at work insists of watching and critiquing the shows throughout property. Along with the monthly rehearsals - teaching the choreography, blocking and scripts for each show. Not only does a staging specialist dance and teach, we also document information, keep logs of notes and information, create books with all of the show information, – more... work along side the management/technician/costuming/cosmetology team. It is also our responsibility to make sure each rehearsal is run smoothly and in a timely manner. Making sure all information is given clearly and efficiently.
The hardest part of the job is when we get last minute shows and are expected to present them to the guests quickly. We make it work however it is very stressful yet fun!
I continue to learn and meet new people in this role. There is always something new - new choreography, new shows, new documents to create, new programs to learn about, etc. – less
