Anaheim- DCA Stores Cast Member (Former Employee) – retail associate and stock member – 19 September 2018
a normal work day is a check in with a basic update of your area, following are the regular check-up from you leads or sometimes management team. there are days where you work so much and you get all caught up but also the days where you are desperately trying to find something to do. in my experience i have been put in the position of termination multiple times for what i thought was i was doing the right thing for. but evidently didn't get terminated for those actions. the hardest part is the management team because they are hard to trust and unreliable due to the specific rules and guidelines that are often broken. the most enjoyable part is the guest interaction and making someone's day with the simplest of considerations. often times you get rewarded for doing your job and reprimanded for going above and beyond. the company wants to save pennies at the cost of dollars.

I was only at Disney headquarters for work experience. All staff members are superb, and even though I was just meant to be there watching, they let me join in with their day to day work which had me sitting in on conference, writing codes for the website etc
Cultural Representative, Various Roles (Former Employee) – EPCOT – 6 April 2016
Working for Walt Disney World was one of the best experiences I've ever had. You wake up in the morning and want to go to work as everything about the role is so enjoyable. The role itself is so satisfying as you are having to make magic every day by going above and beyond all guests expectations and i had so many fantastic memories from doing just that. You would never really have a typical day as every day is different. I was apart of the food and beverage team and the roles consisted of, Hostess, seater, assigner, working in the fish and chip shop and beer cart, so everyday your set up and environment would be different. The one thing that you had to do with all the jobs would be setting up your work station, making sure its clean and tidy and checking everything is stocked ready for the day. Most of the management were brilliant, they were like family to me, i felt like i could go to them at any time and that really helps when you are working for such a big company so far away from home. As for my co-workers, i did have some issues but i always held my head up high and carried on doing my role but unfortunately due to bullying from these co-workers, i chose to leave the program a little early. The most enjoyable part of the job would be making so much happiness and joy with guest. The Walt Disney Company is so inspiring and i have been able to learn so much from them over the past 6 months. I have learned so much more about customer service and how to create a better relationship between you and the guest. For the past 12 weeks, the food and beverage team were extremelymore... understaffed and i was having to work a minimum of 58 hours a week and at one point i was doing 65 hours. It was very tiring but it made it a lot easier to work to work in when you knew you were working in Walt Disney World.less
Work at Disney Land Paris was my best job experience.During a day of work I had to receipt the goods,unload the goods and make quantitative and qualitative control of the producs the morning. I had also to entertain the customers,especially the kids by telling jokes to them all day,it was the most enjoyable part of the job. I really liked to work at Disney Land beacause the customers come from all around the world and being a french it permits me to speak english.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Disneyland, CA – 19 February 2014
It'd be so much better if salary were a living wage in southern California. Work-life balance with Disney is non-existent, as you get swallowed up in the culture. Security doesn't exist as in the US, everyone is "at will employee". Advancement is there, but so competitive it might as well not be. Most staff are on board with the positive culture, so they pull their weight, and make a pleasant place to work. Management is effective, but rarely seen. Some of what Walt Disney mandated has been lost, which is sad.
