Fun for work experience and company insight, draining otherwise.

I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Free park access. You also get to meet many people around the country and world on a daily basis. Depending on where you work, you get to experience fireworks, parades, and the occasional celebrity.

Cons

Lower management tends to have a very obnoxious ego and can be quite nasty to their cast. Very strict on the disney look, and some costumes are very bizarre and kind of humiliating. If you are full time or on the college program you will work 50 plus hours around the holidays.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that the front line cast members are who the guests interact with day to day. the more happy you keep them, the more happy your guests will be!

    Raises weren't bad
    Very casual dress where I worked
    Loved it when the characters came to visit

    Cons

    Not approved time off sometimes.
    7 day support and you must work a Sat or Sun every week and be willing to possibly work holidays.

    It is nothing like what it used to be, few employees are fans of the product

    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Awesome benefits if you are a Disney Parks fan. Access to the utilidors, backstage tours, special events, all kinds of stuff. The pay is middle of the road, and you are surrounded by 60,000 other employees.

    Cons

    The culture is awful and directly out of office space. There are so many forms that have to be filled out to do anything, and you don't actually work for your manager at all. They have very little say in your future beyond your exact current department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the employees excited about the product. If someone is interested and knowledgable on a specific market segment, keep them on that segment.
