Sales Associate (Current Employee), Calgary, AB – July 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 – more... 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. – less
Retail Sales Clerk at Tomorrowland (Current Employee), Anaheim, CA – May 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.

CRM Program Associate (Current Employee), Orlando, FL – May 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.
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

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

I'm sort of sorry I even left this Job, but seeing as it was my first Job I made some decisions i shouldn't have and never will again. It was a great job and i learned a great deal from Disney.

My manager was the nicest, everyone that worked at Disney had an impeccable outgoing personality that made you smile, and if help was asked, help you would receive. I really enjoyed this job. – less
