Hi everyone! I saw a post on restricted rehire status but it was pretty old so I figured I'd post a new one. Any help or stories would be appreciated! I was a cast member back in 99-00. I was a character. I took a medical leave to have my son and when I came back I had too many no call no shows. Now here it is 2007, I'm nearly 30 years old, and I want to go back part time on the weekends to be a character again. Well I went to casting, did the interview, found out I"m on "restricted rehire status". I had to write a blurb as to why I should be rehired by disney. I put that I took full responsibility for my unprofessionalism and being irresponsible when I worked there. I explained how I've grown up in the last 8 years (big difference being 20 and being 28) and blah blah blah. I also had 2 letters of reccommendation written by my current and past full time employer. My recruiter told me it would take about 3 weeks to find out what the "board" says. It's been 2 weeks and I'm so antsy and nervous. Do you think I will get rehired? I just keep thinking- if we all were punished for stupid things we did when we were young this world would be in a lot of trouble! (including the president of the US). LOL!
