You may have heard, Disney is in the midst of furloughing all non-essential employees from Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, as well as Walt Disney Studios. Just the other day the company reached an agreement with a workers union to furlough 43,000 employees. Wow.
On top of the furloughs, Disney executives are taking MASSIVE pay cuts, their Cultural and College Programs have been suspended, and third-party partners are laying off hundreds of workers in Disney Springs and Downtown Disney. With such monumental efforts going towards cutting personnel expenses, you might be surprised to find out that Disney is actually STILL hiring workers, too.
We know! It sounds crazy, but even in the midst of drastic efforts to mitigate a financial downturn, Disney is hiring — for SEVERAL positions! We promise it all makes sense. Let’s dive in.
