    Unfortunately, you applied at a very bad time... the seasonal positions are pretty much filled. Heck, I barely squeaked by... I put in my application in mid April and didn't hear back from them until June. You can try and wait it out if you want, but most likely they're filled. Sorry!!

    I don't think you have a choice when it comes to location (though you can preference or cross-train). And I think they already hired for the WoC training, there's a lot less trainers going around the parks now that summer is in full swing.

    Indeed. It took me over 10 years. This past attempt took about 4 months from the time I applied to the time I got an offer. Mine's a professional position, so your mileage may vary.

    Re: current hiring status

    Just curious if all those guest control CMs are part of a separate division. There are so many of them, what with Fantasmic and WOC.
    In my early years as a CM, guest control was usually handled by ROs, pulled from various attractions. There were those who were scheduled GC shifts as well, but most of them were tied into attractions somehow as I recall.

    The majority of all guest control CM's are from Attractions. Some are pulled from stores also. I don't know if they ever pull from other departments.

    Fantasmic! also pulls from Riverfront Restaurants Food & Beverage to do GC in front of River Belle Terrace/Stage Door Café/Golden Horseshoe. They have to have their own seperate Leads because it's a different Bargaining Unit, but otherwise they do the same duties as Attraction GC Cast.

    Other than that, almost all GC Cast Members throughout WDP&R are pulled from the Attractions LOB, though WDW does allow Cast Members in other LOBs to pick up GC (PAC) shifts through Extra Hours Hotline.

    Re: current hiring status

    Interesting, thanks.

    I was just thinking that if all those GC CMs are Attractions Hosts/Hostesses, they must have a lot of Attractions CMs who don't see their area Attractions very often.

    Times were different when I worked there, I know, but when I was at the park, we were usually working GC shifts in our Attractions costumes, sent out to work the parade (or whatever the event was) from our Attraction. Then we would take a break, and report back to the rotation on our Attraction.

    As others have said, most of the CMs at WOC and F! know other attractions. But WOC does have many CT CMs who only work WOC.

    Re: current hiring status

    It was almost 7 months from my application date to when I got the offer, and it's still going to be almost another month from then until when I start working. I think it's just a really big place and a really slow process, no matter how much they like you, unless you happen to apply for a dept they need at that exact time, and there's no box of people they've already approved for those roles.

    I noticed they have separate GC uniforms now, I think that's because so many GC CMs are needed, they pull from all over, and it looks so much nicer and in theme to have a separate costume. I definitely appreciated the change as a guest. When I applied, my interviewer told me I'd be working some GC shifts, and I guess WoC and F! are long enough each night to constitute scheduling shifts, but I wouldn't be surprised if parade GC was operated like you described, only including a costume change.
