    What is it like working Autopia?

    I just got hired into Autopia and was wondering what it's like to work for it. Anything of concern? Thanks =)

    IT's A BLACK HOLE!!! Once you learn it, you will never see anything but Auto ever again!! You get plenty of hours there though. You have to deal with the heat and gas fumes and little kids trying to run you over!!

    Not true...Auto isn't a black hole. It was my second attraction and I got trained at Monorail a month later. Haven't been back there since. The positive about being hired into Auto is that after 3 months....or wait...I think they changed probation to 4 months now? idk...anyway, after your probation, you can train elsewhere and it will be less likely you will see much of Auto. Such as, if you go to space.

    Personally, I hate Auto. With a passion. Good luck! lol

    Another good thing about learning Auto, that I heard, is that you can get trained on Space afterwards because you are used to the grouping.

    yeah, HISTRO! It's HISTA and Astro Orbitor combined, since it is one rotation now. It used to be two separate rotations. Before that, it used to be paired with Star tours. That is an odd combination, I think because Astro is closer to Tours then it is to HISTA. But, I guess they changed it because the costumes match with HISTA. It was like if you are got 8 hours on Astro, you GET 8 hours of NOTHING but Astro!!! Which sucks!! Not as much as 12 HOURS of Astro!!! What's worse, 7 days STRAIGHT of NOTHING but 12 hours of Astro!!

    And worse than that? 7 days straight, 12 hours Astro...in the middle of summer.

    However, when it used to be paired with Tours, there were so many cm's that preferenced Astro because of all the drama at Tours at the time...I didn't have to do too many 12 hour shifts there. But I like Astro. As long as you're actually working with somebody that GETS OUT of Tower and helps check belts. Now NASA...ugh. Talk about a waste of time. lol
