Student Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Greater London – 28 August 2018
The Walt Disney Company in London offers its employers a very disney-esque environment in which workers can indulge in all that is disney: You will be greeted at the door by Mickey Mouse's face, then proceed to listen to Disney music in the elevator, and finally be welcomed by a variety of disney merchandising spread over all the worker's desks.
The atmosphere is a little tense, as is expected in a company that overlooks 100+ shows on 10+ channels accross 5 continents, but overall people always have a smile on their face, or can count on their peers for help.
The offices are spacious, colourful and any issues related to machinery and IT are usually solved within 2 days.
As a student office assistant, I was trusted with small-ish tasks, but was quickly able to prove to my superiors that I could be trusted with heftier tasks, and it is their trust in my abilities that helped me grow and feel more confident over the course of my internship.
Great cafeteria, good rapport with supervisors, ability to get further training
Remote Technical Support (Current Employee) – Remote – 17 July 2018
I have been with the company for couple months now and in that time I have seen many positive things in place that promote individuality and drive, everyone working with me is wanting to be there and enjoys each hour.
I answer tickets and create how-to's for various trouble shooting and IT maintenance solutions.
Animator/Story Artist (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 11 June 2018
My experience at Disney was very positive and rewarding. A perfect storm of creative challenges and skill development. I learned a great deal about my strengths and weaknesses in the production process and how to best play off of each. My mentors and fellow artists were encouraging and driven by team success over personal glory.
skill development and career growth
Easy to get over whelmed if you don't push yourself to overcome.
Cashier and Sale Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 May 2018
It was a good job for some people. Pay wasn't that great high stress and bad and scheduling. there were some employees who had more than 1 job and was on call. but you had to call in on the times they did post to see if they needed you or not. it was during winter so was crazy busy and only 2 tills open and 8 on floor
Sales Vendor (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 7 May 2018
very tiring but fun to interact with the children long shifts but overall fun to do for the weekend. coworkers were great the mangers were nice but there should be more communication during the weekend.
Working at Disney was a wonderful experience, the office is lively, colorful, and always decorated with Disney merch. Everybody is friendly and welcoming and you never feel out of place, even when exploring other floors of the branch.
Table Lead (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 1 March 2018
Helped develop my customer service and sales skills as well as food and cash handling. The hardest part of the job was during show transmissions and waves of people rushed to the kiosks and bought food or merch
Lead Artist (Former Employee) – glendal, ca – 19 February 2018
No better proof of evolution than to work at Disney. If you want to observe petty human behavior at it's best then work here. If you want to work in a slow-motion train wreck with 50's style management, work here.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 6 July 2017
Managers are always out to get you. Days are spent sitting behind a computer screen answering emails from customers all around the world pretty relaxed. You really have to be a kid at heart to work here.
Awesome establishment to work for during events, flexible hours, and great community to get to know. I learnt to shout loudly and convincingly. I met plently of young people my age and had a blast working with them, the difficult part of the job was how irritating the show was having to hear 3 times a day on constant loop was awful yet nostalgic to my childhood.
