What employees say

Employees like

I have been here a long time and i would change somethings, the over all experience has been good not great. Im going to start with the good about the company I work for for 1 the benefits are better than some companies out there paid vacation time, paid personal days and paid sick time all of which are provided by the company, vacation time grows the longer you have been there so you could end up having 4 weeks ...
The relationships I've formed with my managers have inspired me to chase dreams and not give up. I've had a wonderful group of managers everywhere I've worked within the company, and each time I have felt empowered to share my career goals/ work with them on setting benchmarks for myself.There is a ton of opportunity for professional development, and that is so important to me.
I had the opportunity to train and move into many different positions during my career with Disney. In doing so I got to experience the pride and excitement of being a part of many special events and company achievements. I met and worked alongside some truly great people.
The discounts are great and i am able to take my kids on cruises and to the parks. As a single mom the cast events help me do things with them.
It's amazing to work there !! Every day is different and the staff and guests are wonderful!

Employees don't like

Communication is the key when it comes to team work. A lot of supervisors, leads and more get to comfortable in their role and forget that we must work together. Please remember that managers, leads and supervisors changes the behavior of cast members that interact with the guest.
Management and corporate need to be more accommodating towards college program student workers when it comes to personal issues and accommodating for illnesses or doctors notes. They also need to heavily work on their attendance policies and glitches in their employees' schedules.
The low pay scale and slow advancement or opporrunities
Don't disapprove of anything that the company do.
Nothing I really disapprove. Relaxing atmosphere.

Suggestions for improvement

All employees that are able to work from home should have the option to work 100% remotely and save on the cost and maintenance of office space. There are some on my team that are fully remote, so letting everyone do it would not be much different and would be much more convenient and enjoyable for everyone.
New CEO would be helpful. Actually care about your cast and guests rather than filling the park up with guests and cutting cast work hours and positions at the same time.
they need to make me the director of wellness so we can provide the best guest experience and the best place to work in the morning.
Use people for what they are experienced at. People in the performing arts area can’t read music. I with a BME was told I wasn’t qualified
Walt Disney creative Disney World as a magical world family place, but now they've become very greedy in every aspect.
