  • PLEASE.. Can anyone tell me about Disney maintenance?

    I'm a licensed / journeyman electrician from NJ interested in working for Disney's electrical maintenance department. Can anyone give me some insight into the day-to-day operations of that department (i.e. shifts, type of work, etc.) I'm also looking for info on Disney's subsidiary the Buena Vista Construction Company. I can't seem to find much about either. Thank you

    I would encourage you to contact their casting department and ask these questions. It can seem intimidating on the surface, but after going through that department twice I happily say they should easily answer these questions and more. They might even be able to direct you to yet another department for that kind of work.

      Contact the union, LOCAL UNION 606

      If you are already a journeyman, try to avoid the apprenticeship. They will try to funnel you through the program most likely, but it will lock you in for 5 years. Despite what they say, they do hire electricians, RSTs and even CRSTs off the street, quite often. Watch the job postings on that website, and always BE PERSISTENT. Otherwise they will brush you off.

        Thanks for getting back to me. When you said "they" did you mean disney or the union hall? What are RSTs and CRSTs? Is there opportunity to work your way up the ranks in Disney working out of the hall as an electrician?
        Thanks again

            Hey Chris, they definitely do hire electricians without having to go through the apprenticeship first, however please understand that Disneyland is a unique beast - They may ask you to go through the apprenticeship - Also, generally all new electricians will be put on 2nd or 3rd shift, working overnight when you first start.
