Disney Store Cast Member (Former Employee) – London – 2 February 2018
It is truly physically demanding, a place where you need to be your cheeriest self no matter what is going on behind the curtains. Mid management do their best to keep Cast Members from crushing under pressure and to ensure everyone gets at least enough hours to go by, altho this is not always possible. If you need to fully support yourself or a family, this is only a second job type of employment since income is not steady.
You learn a lot about Disney if you are interested, there are plenty of opportunities to travel around the world (again, if you are a student or a person without ties).
I loved it there, but I can say this because I am not there anymore, it can wear you off a lot.
A great discount in Disney products, movie tickets and Disneyland resorts tickets, flexible shifts
Cast Member (Former Employee) – Norwich – 29 January 2018
Definitely a fun place to work even just as a Christmas temp - the experience you get with sharing the magic with the kids is not something you easily forget. Typical day is mostly greeting guests and stock taking - the management were really friendly and I got along with everyone I worked with, it's very much about teamwork.
great work environment, great people, discounts and opportunities to work at the main parks
picker and packer (Former Employee) – Lutterworth, Leicestershire – 10 January 2018
It was over all a fun and productive work place, however it was very long hours on your feet. Apart from that fact it was very enjoyable with management being conduct very well and team members and other employers being very polite.
Digital Asset Intern (Former Employee) – London – 10 January 2018
Day-to-day life in the Disney offices were fun, as an intern I had a handful of responsibilities. I was guided well by my manager, the position would be filled by interns annually but this gave little authority over the permanent creative teams who's files i was tasked at managing.
At Disney my typical day would consist of picking out products from a list given to me by my manager and i would have to scan the product then pack the product into a box then seal and label the box. The management system was fair. The workplace culture was a enjoyable environment to work in and the other employees were great to work with as part of a hardworking team. I really enjoyed working as part of a large hardworking and motivated team.
Cast Member (Former Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 4 January 2018
I'm a huge Disney fan, which made my experience amazing. I'm very passionate about the company and thoroughly enjoyed working there. I'm forever trying to go back. There are many benefits from the company, like every year you're given a Christmas present and if you meet targets, you may win something at the end. Discounts and park tickets are a bonus too! Over all, if you're as crazy as me about Disney, you should seriously give it a go. I've got a second family; my Disney family!
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Leicester – 8 December 2017
Good place to work, long working hours, availability of overtime and not too stressful work. However, the agency which is called industra steals money from the workers by not paying them fully. Plus they keep charging them for fees that do not exist. Sometimes, the money gets paid back after several weeks, other times they get away with the money.
Trainee Makeup Artist (Former Employee) – London – 29 November 2017
A life changing experience with a chance to learn from some of the best artists in the industry. As I am just starting out, this opportunity presented a chance for me to see what I could one day achieve. Managers were friendly as were the makeup artists, all were happy to support and teach me. Such a fulfilling experience
Amazing pay, free food, great company and support
Lots of hours, no room really for a life beside the job
Intern (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 26 November 2017
During my work experience I gained a lot of knowledge that I hope to carry on into my career. It was really good to go to the different departments and see what everyone did which helped to give some ideas for what I might like to do when I leave education.
Manager (Current Employee) – Essex – 31 October 2017
Very good place to work just a shame about such tiny contracts. The only reason people leave is lack of hours. Other than that the job is really fun and the people are as passionate as you would think they are.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Gateshead – 9 October 2017
Really fun and vibrant place to work. Great fun working with children although can be manic and hard work at times, especially on busy days. Staff discount is good, especially handy if you have children.
