What do you like about working at The Walt Disney Co.?
Nice, creative environment. Great coworkers. Beautiful studio campus which is wonderful to work at (grass, trees, nice architecture).
What don't you like about working at The Walt Disney Co.?
I saw some inefficient use/waste of budget in a few departments; Once a dept had one bad apple manager (tyrant or didn't know their job or didn't have managing experience), those same mgrs would hire similar types. Pay - Disney doesn't have to pay competatively since everyone wants to work there. (It's very tough to get in! HR receives over 700 resumes for each job position, per HR). I did not have a bad experience at Disney, but these were my observations of things happening around us.
What suggestions do you have for management?
I'd remind them to interview carefully and ask the right questions, or look around them to promote from within. Hire hard working people with true work ethic and good people skills; make sure management is put in place who know how to MANAGE and know how to gain the trust and respect of their people. Teamwork can help a company soar. The lack of teamwork and integrity can make a company sink.
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
Have your ducks in order, well polished resume, do your homework on the job you're applying for. Bring enthusiasm and a genuine smile to the table during your interview!
