Disney is just one of many companies starting to offer work from home jobs. You can now be a part of the magical adventure by applying for one of Disney’s remote Guest Services jobs at the Disney Store. As a Cast Member, your main goal is to “Create Magical Moments for Guests” of all ages.
You’re required to demonstrate your technical expertise with guests on the phone. At the same time, you’ll need to be entertaining, fun and create a magical experience for the caller. You might also need to call guests in an attempt to resolve issues. Bottom line, you’ll be bringing stories to life with scripted and non-scripted statements.
Disney is looking for high energy employees who are able to contribute to their storytelling environment. As Disney puts it, “We make the impossible, possible.” Strong attention to detail is required along with excellent verbal and written communication skills. Computer proficiency is also required and having a good knowledge of online shopping is a definite plus.
These Guest Services jobs are at Disney Stores around the country. In fact, there are more than 200 Disney Stores in North America and 140 in other countries. Each Disney Store offers a magical shopping experience. The goal is to bring that experience to anyone calling in.
Outside of the Disney Stores, there are also opportunities to work from home as a Guest Support Representative. This position makes the Disney experience come alive by making each email, phone or live chat a “meaningful connection with our guests.” Employees are required to resolve guest issues, help with product questions, manage guest accounts, and respond to fans.
