Ok, this post will probably stir up some debate here, so why not. I am a fromer CM and have worked at numerous food locations since 1977 and as late as 2001. In my early days there, cm's had the respect for the policies handed down to them by mamnagement regarding good "SHOW". We respected that. We never were caught dead while walking and either drinking or eating while walking on stage and in costume to or from their work location.
Today, while in the park as a guest, I cringe when I constantly see cm's walking around and talking on their cell phones, eating, drinking, chomping on their gum and even in some instances holding hands, while walking on stage amongst the park's guests. What is worse, I have seem supervisors walk by and see these situations and not do a thing about it. This really proves to me that a lot of cm's just don't give a damn any more, along with mgmt. I am so sick and tired of seeing people yack on their cell phones while driving, but doing this while in costume in front of guests is pretty blatant and idiotic.
Anyone know why this happens all of the time. I tell you if I was a mgr., I would take action immediately on these infractions and against the violators. They do not deserve to work at Walt's park.
