Disney laid off tens of thousands of employees during the pandemic and now they’re hiring and offering $1,000 bonuses in an attempt to recruit new housekeeping and kitchen staff at Walt Disney World.
Those wanting the bonus must stay on for at least 90 days. But here’s the catch. You get $250 after 90 days and the remaining $750 after 150 days according to their website.
“$1000 Hiring Bonus (First payment after 90 days = $250 and Second payment after 150 days = $750)” You must be employed by the company when the bonuses are issued, and they can take up to two weeks after you pass those days to get them.
Right now they are looking for Culinary Cook 1 roles ( Advanced line cook) and they start at $18.00 an hour.
Culinary Chef’s Assistants (Lead Line Cook) are starting out at $19.00 an hour.
Culinary Chef’s Assistants (Pastry/Bakery) are starting out at $19.00 an hour.
Housekeeping starts out at $16.00 an hour.
There are several other positions available but not all of them are offering the bonuses.
It will be interesting to see how many will return to work or how many will now begin applying for these positions as the federal unemployment extensions will end today, June 26, 2021 for Florida.
If you are wanting to work at Walt Disney World or other Disney parks, now might be a good time to get in. They need help and seem to be having a hard time getting it. Disney even offers child care options.
