Would you work at a theme park?

While watching a Disney livestream yesterday, I noticed the cast members standing at the front of the queues to get into lines for the rides and thought to myself....hmm, that's a good job for me. All I have to do is stand there and make sure they're getting in the right line lol. Easy money!

No. Definitely not.

You’re forced to deal with the worst of humanity on a daily basis. Screaming unruly kids, confused foreigners who don’t understand English, entitled Karens, dunderheaded rednecks, etc. I work at a restaurant so I already deal with all of that, but working at a theme park, that’s like times 10. My nerves wouldn’t be able to handle that.

Probably not, no.

Standing/sitting around ushering humans through lines all day might look like pretty easy work...if you luck out with an indoor ride. Because I would not want that job in humid 90°F weather in August and I feel bad for those people.

And that's not even with dealing with the various intolerable behavior Cowabung-Gal mentions, day in and day out.

Disney is infamous for paying minimum wage for all of their park jobs. And you are naive to think they are just standing there doing nothing.

That said, I have low-key been considering such a job as a retirement job. But that would also require moving near a park. That's like 20+ years away, though.

The only people who work at Disney are either late teens/young 20 year olds who need a job before they get their first big job, or old seniors/retired people. You never see anyone 25-40+ working there unless they're just desperate for a job. They also get paid minimum wage so you're not making nothing.
