The Disney Store is now offering work-from-home jobs in Florida, Texas, Georgia, Nevada and North Carolina. The jobs do not require a college degree, and applicants are expected to help create “magical moments for guests of all ages” without the need to relocate to live near Disney World or Disneyland.

Disney is in need of people to work in a “high energy, storytelling environment.” Would-be-employees will connect with guests and will assist to resolve any issues they may have. They will be called “cast members” and would help guests over the phone and email. They may also need to escalate issues to a manager or supervisor.

Disney is constantly ranked as a great company to work for on Glassdoor.com, LinkedIn and Fortune's lists. Full-time workers will have access to affordable healthcare insurance options and paid time off.

They will also get discounts at select Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. Employees will be paid per week.

Those interested for the job must also have a flexible schedule that meets the needs of the business. These include weekends, evenings and holidays. The company’s career page provides further information regarding the jobs currently available.
