I'm a current CP at WDW in operations and I love it. My program is almost up and I know for a fact I want to go fulltime. A recent trip out to DLR made me think maybe I should go fulltime there.
How does one go "full-time" at DLR? I know at WDW its as simply as walking into casting and pretty much getting a job (espically easy for me since I'm already working for the company and would stay where I am now). Is it as easy at DLR or is is hard to get hired there? I would like to work in attractions but my short-term (as in a few years) would be to land a guest relations spot (I realize I would have to transfer over to after gaining some experience at the resort).
Would it be stupid to transfer from WDW over to DLR? My managers have told me I could probably become a trainer on my attraction within a few months of going full-time and that they see a lot of potential in me. I know by going over to DLR I pretty much lose that manager backing and have to start from ground zero again but if you prove yourself can you quickly move up to be a trainer or even a lead in attractions?
How hard is it to move up at DLR? I know moving up in Disney isn't the easiest thing but some people I talk to say it would be alittle easier at DLR then WDW since it is smaller but others say the exact opposite.
Would it maybe be best for me to do the DLR college program to get my foot in the door at the resort?
What would you recommend? Staying at my current location and perhaps become a trainer in a few months and maybe a coordinator within a year/year-and-a-half or going out to DLR and gaining experience there? Would it look good on a resume when I was applying for say a guest service manager spot that I worked at and learned about both resorts?
I know that right there is about a million questions but any help or advice at all would be greatly appericated.
