I was taught a lot as it being the first company I worked in. They will teach you sustainable skills and procedures that can be applied to any job you will have in the futur. It's also great to practice languages at and outside of the workplace.

Good environment and culture, very demanding and in may cases under resourced people wise. Not a lot of career opportunities or promotional opportunities in certain departments but still a great experience!

Enjoyed my time with them, only spent a week between Melbourne and Brisbane. But everyone was nice and helpful. We showed up and were given a rundown of what to do and what to expect. They had high expectations and were supportive if you made mistakes.

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

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

Too many managers who are non productive, who pass on work to limited amount of workers who have to put in long hours to meet deadlines as there are not enough worker to do the work,

Working at Walt Disney was a dream come true, I had been employed at many animation studios prior to Disney,so I had experience here in Australia and overseas. It's a very productive and exciting company full of people with great imaginations and plenty of learning opportunities.

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
