Want to work at the Happiest Place on Earth?
As part of a spring hiring event, Disney World is filling 3,500 jobs, some of which include new hire bonuses of up to $3,000, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Bonuses will be given out after training and after 30 days on the job.
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.
Here are the departments promoting their new hire bonuses:
Housekeeping Jobs at Disney
Channel your inner Snow White as you tidy up after tiny guests at one of the many Disney hotels.
Housekeeping has scheduled its job fair for May 9 at the Walt Disney World Casting Center.
Starting pay is $10.50 per hour with hiring bonuses up to $1,250. There’s no indication whether you are required to whistle while you work.
Lifeguard Jobs at Disney
Get ready to hear “Just keep swimming!” A lot.
Snag a job at one of Walt Disney World Resort’s five beaches, 10 marinas, 50-plus pools or two water parks during a job fair being held at Typhoon Lagoon Water Park on May 2.
Deep-water lifeguards can earn $11.25 per hour, while those staying in the shallow end can get $10.25 an hour. Hiring bonuses range from $500 for seasonal jobs to $1,000 for full- and part-time swimmers.
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 many 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.
You do not need a commercial driver license, but you do need a valid Florida driver license.
The post lists full- and part-time job openings to be filled through April 30. Starting pay is $12.65 an hour, with a hiring bonus up to $500.
But you say you’re not a Disney fan? No worries: Competitor Universal Studios is also making a hiring push — including lifeguard career fairs scheduled for May 4, 11 and 18.
