I don't know about MBAs, but a lot of engineers out there would rather eat than work for Disney, if you catch my drift.

Hmm...it all depends on what you want to be. Do you want to start out as an hourly, or do you want to start out as management.

Hourlies get better than minimum wage, but it's still not alot of money. Management, however, does get paid more, but they don't get paid holidays, no union, and can theoretically be there 7 days a week.

Be aware too that most front-line managers are former hourlies, so unless you want to work at TDA or in Burbank, an advanced degree might not help get the salaried-spot.
