Hi, I worked for Disneyland in custodial department back in 1992-1993. When they cut my hours back to only 5 hours a week in September after working over 40 hours every week, I had to find another job. For 3 months I gave away my 5 hours a week to other cast members who needed the shift since I found a full time job somewhere else. Finally in November I resigned.
Well, it's been 16 years and I've been working in construction all this time. In fact after I left Disney I worked for Golden State Framers and I built that Hunchback of Notre Dam Attraction at DL. After that I worked on Universal Studios when they remodeled the entrance and shops. Anyway, I went back to apply for the maintenance department as a finish carpenter and told them I worked there many years ago. It took them forever to look up my old records and they told me I was on a no-rehire status, but wouldn't give me a reason why. So I filled out some forms for a appeal which they told me would take about 3 weeks. After a month I called and they said it would take longer because the appeals people only meet periodically. So, I ended up waiting at least 2 months until I finally received a letter in the mail saying I could not be rehired, but they didn't give me any reason.
I have no reason why I am on a no rehire status, and why they won't rehire me. As far as I can remember I was a great cast member, never called in sick, never came in late, and never missed a shift. When I was originally hired I was a supposed to be a seasonal casual temporary(CT), but after my training they changed my status to casual regular(CR) because they said they liked me and I did a good job. Is there any way to find out why I am on a no rehire status and why they won't rehire me. I could understand if there were no job openings, but to say I can't be rehired and not even give any explanation is strange.
Anyone have any idea what to do?
Another side note: The whole reason I got into construction as a carpenter was because I was inspired by a Disneyland carpenter in the maintenance dept when I worked there. He told me how to become a carpenter and it was sort of a dream of mine to one day come back and keep Disneyland looking great, but now it seems that dream has been squashed for some unknown reason.
