Productive, Fun, Great Environment
Cast Member (Current Employee) – England – 16 April 2018
Working for Disney is a fantastic experience. Disney offers more than a regular store -its also about Guest service and creating a magical experience for any guest who enters the store, representing the Disney branding and standards. Occasionally you get the magical moment of telling a child they're going to Disneyland, or celebrating their birthday. It makes their day and also their own.
A typical day can be productive, fast-working at the till, filling the shelves or moving the merchandising as well, but its all part of keeping the store running.
I've learned how to provide exceptional customer service, team-working, company policies, how to construct merchandise displays, how to work fast yet efficiently at the till, research the company, and more. It's a fantastic environment, its rare to find a bad co-worker at Disney.
To me, the hardest part of the job for me would definitely be representing the brand and customer service policies to customers who don't want this, as it can often make you feel like you are not fulfilling your role. Others would describe the pressure at Christmas the hardest part, however if your head is in the game you will feel productive, and sometimes the rush of a busy store makes your shift go quicker!
Working for the WDC also has fantastic perks, which I will not mention here, but it's fantastic. I definitely don't plan on leaving Disney anytime soon
