Would you work at Disneyland knowing...

Falsepast Falsepast
You have to smile ALL DAY LONG. I heard when you work at Disney, you have to smile the whole time.
Knowing this, would you be willing to work there?

I don't think I could because my cheeks would just hurt so much at the end of the day.

If I wanted to work there, I would smile. I don't mind smiling.

I worked at Disneyworld for a few months and I want to go back so badly. I am a nurse though and my Overtime pays a whole lot more than I made at Disney but it really wasn't a job. They treated us so great. I had fun there. I worked at the Magic Kingdom but not as a nurse. I spent a whole lot more than I ever made and I miss it. I would get excited about going to work.

I smile most of my workday because i love what I do...and customers are always watching.
I would never work at disney though. It's kind of ew to me.

Smiling wouldn't be a problem for me, it would be the large amount of people!

A LOT of jobs require difficult things from their employees. I don't see smiling as that much of a chore, considering I clean up hemorrhages, shit, puke, piss, persuade people to take their medicine, help women change sanitary their sanitary napkins at times, change diapers ALL the time, start and manage IVs, get people through emotional and psychological breakdowns, some which include suicide threats, persuade women to feed their babies properly and TEACH them how (nearly always getting their milk all over myself in the process) see people in pain and have little resources, besides a pill and a kind word to help them, have to be ready to give CPR to a stranger at any minute, and and on my feet the entire time. And, that's usually only my first hour...

Smiling all day doesn't sound that bad. They wouldn't call it "work" if it was ALL fun.

Try DisneyWorld - you're performing during your whole shift. About the only people who don't perform are those who work in the freezers. The "magic" comes from the employees who are actors, even if they're sweeping the streets and emptying trash. You *are* part of the Disney Image.

It definitely takes a special type of customer service personality to be able to work for Disney. Those I know who have it absolutely loved working for the Mouse, just like travelnurse.

I don't think I could handle smiling ALL DAY. I know that my face/cheeks hurt from smiling so much on my wedding day, and I can't imagine doing that all day every day!

I could not smile all day it would drive me insane and what if your having a bad day how in the world do you force a smile all day long? But then again if they pay me enough money I could smile all day.

I doubt I'd be much good at that sort of work, but if I needed the job badly enough, I'd likely just put petroleum jelly on my teeth like a pageant winner in a parade or something.

Are they hiring? Aren't we still in a recession with few job available? Jobs are work!!

Maybe I sound like your mother, but shit, it's a job and not a bad one. You have to smile OMG the horror.... (eye roll)

Didja all read what I have to do in my nursing job? Sometimes I wish all I had to do was smile. (But, usually, I'm thankful to have done a good hard days' work.)

Again, if it was all fun, they wouldn't call it "work."

Who here is really in a place to turn down a decent paying job?

Maybe I'm missing something....or maybe I've had to work all of my adult life and during most of my teens and realize work is work. There are hella worse jobs than one in which you have to smile. Again, maybe I haven't been privileged enough to have been able to turn down jobs due to something this minor...

I smile a lot naturally, but because I want to. I don't know how I'd feel if I was forced to do it.

I wouldn't work there, but not because of that. I can fake a smile all day if I need to. I did it for sales jobs for many years.

I wouldn't work there because, aside from my own child, I'm not a big fan of kids. I love mine to pieces, but other people's kids work my nerves. Bad. I'd go nuts working with children all day. I constantly tell my son's teachers that I think they're angels. lol

I wouldn't work there but not because of the smiling thing. I just wouldn't want to work there, it's more fun to go there on a vacation or something and have fun on the rides, etc.

I would end up on a shooting rampage if I had to hear the song it's a small world all day long plus have to smile at all those crazed disney fans..

I usually smile most of the day but I was told by a Disney rep that my 'image' just wasn't Disney. They advised me to grow my hair out and take the extra piercings out of my ears and try wearing makeup.

I do it all day long anyways so it would not be nothing new to me.

The smiling thing doesn't bug me. There are plenty of other reasons to not work for Disney.

I couldn't work for Disney. It would drive me to do terrible terrible things...with all the cutesy songs, the screaming children, and having to be 'happy' about working there? No.

You make a good point. If I needed a job and didneyworld was the only thing available I wear a shit eatin' grin my entire shift.
