Thread regarding Disney layoffs

How much harder is it to work now?

I got laid off in October and in the meantime I found another job that is much worse than the one I had. It’s better than having none of course, but I hope I could get an invitation to come back here again.
I am interested in the current situation in the company, the pandemic has certainly changed things a lot since last year.
How different are the working conditions, are the benefits reduced? How much harder is it to work now in general?

I got called back part-time, from entertainment to an attractions positions. I am thankful to still be a cast member. But, things have changed... not the "best practices people being called back. It's very strange here. Maybe it's because the DCP cast members are absent. I miss their undamaged spirit.

One advantage now, is that diverse cast members are getting called back and recommended for rehiring first and foremost. This is also true of positions going through external hiring practices. So, if you are a minority, etc. you will have great opportunities with Disney.

I'm sure any reduction in benefits will come in the future once the economy is stabilized and the company has had a chance to breathe and do some hard reflection.

Depends on where you work though because I don't have anything to do with the parks etc.

Most everyone who I've talked who's working now hates their life. Not doing the same job, yelled at by guests constantly, understaffed, etc.
