WDW Job Fairs, Signing Bonuses Attract Cast Members
Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek remarked that he expected Walt Disney World to be fully staffed by the end of 2021 during the company’s third quarter earning call today. Based on job listings and signing bonuses added recently, the resort looks well on its way to reaching that goal.
Later this month, the Walt Disney World Resort will host not one but two job fairs for culinary and housekeeping positions. To entice new cast members to take on the critically important roles at the resort, Walt Disney World will also offer a $1,000 signing bonus for some roles, including advanced culinary and housekeeping.
The fair runs from August 24th until August 25th. Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort and Conference Center will host the fairs from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. Attendees may be able to even apply and interview during the event with management. Futhermore, qualified candidates may be offered a job on the spot.
Almost to a Signing Bonus
To receive the $1,000 sign-on bonus, new cast members must meet a number of requirements. First, the person must remain in the role “continuously for at least 90 days after hire and be employed by the Walt Disney Company at time of payment,” according to the posting.
An incentive bonus also exist if a cast member remains continuously employed in the position for 150 days. Again, the person must also “be employed by The Walt Disney Company at the time of payment,” according to the posting.
For those unable to attend the job fair, applicants can also submit their paperwork online at Disney Careers. A wealth of part-time and full-time options are now posted for cast member roles at the Walt Disney World Resort. It certainly looks like leadership there is prepping for what is sure to be an incredibly exciting, and busy, fall.
