Whistle While You Work: Disney World Is Filling Jobs (With Bonuses)
Want to work at the Happiest Place on Earth?
As part of a summer hiring event, Disney World is holding a housekeeping job fair, and it’s offering new hire bonuses of $1,250 to all you Snow Whites out there ready to clean up after those messy dwarves.
Bonuses will be given out after training and 30 days on the job.
Disney has scheduled its housekeeping job fair for July 25 at the Walt Disney World Casting Center in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
If you’re hired for one of the full-time jobs, you’ll also be eligible for the company’s benefits package, which includes health insurance, vacation and sick leave, a retirement plan and an employee stock purchase program.
Starting pay for full-time positions is $10.50 per hour. It is $10.15 an hour for part-time positions. There’s no indication whether you are required to whistle while you work.
Other departments are also hiring as part of the Disney’s Sun-sational Hiring Event:
Culinary Jobs at Disney
Try the gray stuff, it’s delicious! Don’t believe me? Ask the culinary chef assistant.
So the name wouldn’t exactly roll off Lumière’s tongue, but among the job openings in Disney’s culinary world, it’s the cooks who earn the hiring bonuses.
They’re also the jobs that require a minimum of three years of line cook experience.
The culinary chef assistant can earn a bonus of $3,000 on top of the $13.95 to $14.73 per hour pay rate, while a culinary cook 1 can cook up a $1,000 bonus in addition to the $12.95 to $13.21 per hour pay rate.
Bus Driver Jobs at Disney
I have run out of Disney references — apparently, not a lot of princesses arrive at the ball on a bus.
But driving an air-conditioned bus would definitely be a plus, considering the Florida heat.
Disney also upped the bonus from its spring hiring event — from $500 to $2,000. Starting pay for bus drivers is $12.65 per hour.
You do not need a commercial driver license, but you do need a valid Florida driver license.
None of these jobs your dream come true? Disney has posted additional jobs — although none of those promote any bonuses. But maybe you can request some mouse ears.
