I massively enjoyed my placement year. The job was very varied and I didn't find myself doing mundane tasks on a regular basis.
I feel like the team welcomed me with open arms. The internship programme at Disney is well established so the interns are part of the furniture. The team know what to expect each year when the interns change and are very supportive and accommodating.
My manager was extremely supportive. She involved me in major projects and pushed me out of my comfort zone in a supported way.
I think there was a good balance. I rarely felt overwhelmed or bored.
I was given a good amount of responsibility as many of the tasks that I was required to complete were critical for the business.
I feel like I have gained a wide range of skills and knowledge which I can take back to uni and to future employment.
The office had a very fun atmosphere. There was always something exciting going on
Disney have a well established internship programme so everything was well organised.
I had a few training sessions whilst at Disney, including a professional profiling session which was very good.
There is no Grad scheme and jobs at Disney are hard to come by. However if you impress on your placement year there is definitely opportunities for future work.
Yes. There is a large intern community and the office is located in Hammersmith which has loads of pubs and isn't too far away from central London.
London Prices so fairly expensive.
Fairly good. Lots of pubs and bars around which are really good during the summer months.
