    Thumbs up Welcome Cast Members

    There are so many Cast Members registered here that I thought I would give you your very own lounge. Enjoy.

    With any luck, you'll all come up with the perfect plan to get Steve Jobs elected as Chairman and CEO of Disney.

    Cheers,
    -The Dusty One

    Please! In fact, if other posters have questions for current or former cast members, this would be the place to post those as well.

    Anything you want. Just be careful that Disney can't figure out who you are. I don't want any of you to get fired.

    It all seems to boil down to availability and attendance records to me. Also
    things on file from prior managers and areas stay with you forever. Anything
    negative since day one can be used against you.

    I'm way back from 1994! So, do they still make you go to Disney University when you start? What is it, like 16 hours of training?

    Training

    Yes, they make you go to the TDA building and sit in a room for 3 days of training. First thing I noticed was how strict they were in what you wore. I actually saw them send home several people for not wearing the correct clothing. I actually was about to be sent home for having brown laces on my Kenneth Coles but I was lucky because I wasen't scheduled to do my OJT that day. Training was almost like being in school again and taking notes.

    snappy oh, I totally forgot about the black shoe thing. Woah, I remember that. I was quite 18 yet at the time, so I had to go home 1 or 2 hours before everyone else. It was a little embarrassing.
