Hardworking
Epcot Future World Attractions Cast Member (Former Employee) –  Epcot10 July 2016
Working at Disneyworld was hard and strenuous, yet fulfilling and educating. A typical day would range from a 6 hour shift to 14 hour day, weeks involved hours from 40 hours- 70 hours a week. Working in attractions involved walking in a moving belt, loading and unloading guests on and off the ride. Also involved hosting a show and crowd control for fireworks shows. There were a variety positions involved at each attraction that ranged from wheelchairs to operating the ride etc.

Dealing with all kinds of people from all over the world, some being very very difficult, while keeping a level and open mind at all times.
Constantly challenged everyday, having to deal with all kinds of situations you could think of, there was not one day that was the same, and no situation that was the same.

Co workers involved people from all over the world, which was the greatest part of the job, being able to work with people from other places made it interesting, but also never having the same people on at the same time, always different.

Hardest part of the job was the long hours, dealing with difficult guests and constantly being challenged mentally and physically.
The biggest lesson learnt on this job was that hard work pays off, that nothing comes easy and that making the smallest gesture can change someones whole holiday. We had the power to make or break a families holiday, and seeing the smiles a family has after you do something small from them, especially the children is priceless.
Pros
Free entry into the parks
Cons
long hours

Highly productive and inovative, simulated "town".
Feature Film Extra (Former Employee) –  Gold Coast, QLD27 May 2015
Working closely with the principle director and the six assistant directors, lighting and sound technicians, continuity photographers, wardrobe stewards, makeup artists and props department officials to produce a product of international standard that is without fault and can be subjected to the most intense scrutiny without criticism.
The attention to detail for even the smallest of areas was of constant concern due to the aspect of ‘continuity’. That is, giving the impression that nothing has changed, particularly, after a day’s shooting or meal break. Lighting, costume and makeup was monitored for consistency and every ‘take’ and throughout the day. For example, consistency of makeup was under constant examination by the makeup artists as they continually studied the extra’s makeup through the day’s shooting. This included fingernail and all areas of the body that were exposed.
Site safety was also extremely important; even more so than a typical construction site as there was the added concern of children and animals (cattle, donkeys and goats) to observe. The film set was a series of facades supported by scaffolding. Therefore a high level of awareness of protruding objects was important. For general objects that are commonly regarded as capable of supporting the load of a person, these props were lightweight and frail and had to be treated very carefully at all times.
Fire awareness: Ever aspect of fire safety were observed at all times. This was the duty of every person on the film site and any potential issue was to be brought to the attention of any of the production
  more... crew. Particularly when special effects were being used, such as pyrotechnics.
Environmental aspects and cleanliness and hygiene were the priority of all cast and crew. Recycling was meticulously observed as the production company was wanting to achieve an international recognition for their efforts to minimise waste and pollution, and ultimately reduce landfill.
The technicians, producers and directors as well as the other extras have come together and are all working to very tight deadlines. Providing my co-workers with an environment where unnecessary stress or personal issues that can be avoided, was the priority of all involved on the film-set.
Working with co-workers was not difficult at all. Except to say we all got to do new things we had never done before.
The management was terrific as they had to coordinate over 200 extras at one time, quickly and very efficiently, which was done very professionally. There was no hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable probably was that I got to part and control a trained donkey in my scenes.

interactive supportive and encouraging work place
Senior Associate (Former Employee) –  Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide24 April 2012
Whilst the days may have been longer that one would like the management from the TOP encouraged and supported all employees. The team that I worked with were dedicated and focused, working through projects to ensure the optimum outcome for the company was achieved.ensuring that all disciplines delivered and co ordinated tasks was a main issue for control and scrutiny.
The most enjoyable part of working for NDY was working and compiling tasks with a professional group , without being micro managed.
Pros
great management direction
Cons
long hours
