    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • An extremely enjoyable day-to-day environment to work in, and also provides great benefits such as cinema screenings.

    4/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • My team entrusted with high responsibility tasks and were always appreciative of my contributions, and did not 'treat me like an intern'.

    5/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • My supervisors and manager were extremely supportive of my development, encouraging me to attend many internal learning sessions and were always willing to teach me.

    5/5

    5/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • I was suprised by the amount of responsibility I was given. It enabled me to challenge myself and get the most out of the internship.

    5/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I believe that my year at Disney will influence the success of my future career far more than my degree will. It has been invaluable to my development.

    5/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • The company put on multiple learning sessions throughout the year, where expert speakers come in to teach a certain topic. There are endlesss opportunities to get involved in throughout the year should you chose to.

    5/5

  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • Company Parties/Events

    Staff Sales/Staff Shop

    4/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • Although there is no graduate scheme, if you proved yourself and built strong working relationships, should a job arise in the future, you will stand a good chance when applying.

    4/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • No intern social events organised by the company, but a great social scene formed amongst the interns - plenty of nights out etc. Even better if you live with other Disney interns.

    4/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • Expensive, but it is all relative to the location. London is one of the best cities in the world so of course it is expensive.

    3/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • Hammersmith has plenty of bars, but central London is much better for nightlife - it's not too far on the tube.

    3/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • Team drinks were set up every now and then, and sometimes outings to Disney events. I believe there were sports teams too.

    4/5
