Any software engineers at Disney World in Lake Buena Vista/Orlando? I've applied for a position and could use some help finding a reference that could get my resume to the right people! I use to be a CP but my old contacts aren't relevant to the engineering org. Any help would be greatly appreciated! While we're at it; how is it being a software engineer for the "mouse"? Cheers

Tl;dr - Looking for a contact at Disney World for software engineer position. How's being an engineer for the "mouse"?

      Pay is shit. They sell you on the "but isnt it a wonderful company?" pitch. Good resume builder though. Work there for a bit and move on to a more lucrative role.

      be prepared for all of the ”have a magical day” closings in emails and phone calls conferences Etc even when you're being driven into the ground on issues that aren't your fault

    Do they give a free pass as a perk?

      The way it use to be (at least 9 years ago) was employees got in the park for free and got discounts for just about everything. They also got a number of passes to get family and friends in for free quarterly, or maybe it was annually. It was a use it or lose it sort of thing, the free passes for family and friends didn't roll over.

      Sounds like a great perk if you have kids.

      for a cast member in Orlando, technically I believe it is: you can get in as much as you want with a spouse and kids. have a limited number of Walk-Ons you can bring with you, but have to remain in your party (so you can't walk them in and then leave and go to work).... and a very limited number(3? 6? per year) of Paper Tickets that you can give to anyone else for them to use when they want (they do expire in short order).

      Seems like a lot of the job force is like that in the south, but haven't seen much of it in the software industry. Actually, surprised to hear that about Disney since it appears to be very diverse. Thx for the info!

    I applied for an internship for data analyst and got selected for the Skype interview. How is the interview procedure ?

    Its great for families with kids. For single tech workers its ho-hum and used it for leverage in salary negotiations. Their total awards calculations are complete fantasy. But if you think broadly, there are ways to make it work to your advantage. Like Disney cruises?

    For salaried Cast, the passes are unlimited use. Typically you get three Guest passes plus spouse
