        Yeah I know for network engineering they say they would like 10 years experience for their senior network engineer but they never said that experience had to be with Disney

          No.

          Many, many people working at various levels of management in Team Disney Anaheim (the yellow building backstage) have never worked in the park and are proud of that fact. Whether that makes them more or less capable to manage a themepark is a matter for debate.

          Disney comprises many enterprises that are not themepark-related, such as ABC, ESPN, Disney Theatrical, Imagineering, Animation, Disney Cruises, Disney film production, etc, etc, etc. Many of those folks have never worked at any of the Disney themeparks.

              Also keep in mind, Disney is more then Just the Disneyland Resort, and other Theme Parks.

                It was funny. I used to work for Knott's. When I hired in, most of the people I worked with at Knott's, worked for Disney.

                  I have to agree with the one posting that it depends on where you are applying for. Parking and security is a little different from what I am told from a friend of mine. I would like to work in the park someday.

                    That being said, I would say that anyone dealing with anything park oriented (Imagineering, marketing, anything in the TDA building, etc.) should work IN the park first. Too many people involved in aspects concerning the parks know nothing about them. One reason that some problems have developed is because those making decisions are not in tune with the actual workings in the parks.

                    Of course, that same relationship should be applicable to the other divisions.

                    Those companies that develop their employees through the ranks are probably more efficient and stable than those that have staff with little working knowledge of their output.
