    I was talking with one of my coworkers whos been with the company for a long time (he started as a Parking CM back when the parking lot was still in front of the park) about this today, and he was telling me about how some of his fellow co-workers from back then are now in salaried and leadership roles not only at DLR/TDA, but also at WDW, WDP&R (DisneyParks), Corporate, Studios and so on.

    We also have the JOBS system, which is where all openings within the company (as well as ABC, ESPN, and the other subsidaries) are posted before they are released to the general public. As I said before, current Disney CMs and Employees do have preference over those from outside the company.
    Thanks for the info! I'm just starting out- my Traditions class is next Wednesday. I don't necessarily want to go into management per se, but I'm hoping to work my way up to a salaried, full-time position in the future.

    Re: Need help with getting hired with the Mouse.

    I always assume that there are large numbers of people in TDA that started their careers as hourlies at the park. It may be that large numbers is off in my assumption, but I've met quite a few people (who are either still with Disney or moved on) that started as hourlies and worked their ways to professional roles (some within a small amount of years, others with close to decades).

    Anyway, I don't know what your financial situation is, but are you only looking for full-time? There are some positions in Burbank and Glendale that are 29-hour "casual" positions (i.e., part-time). Unfortunately, I don't know if this makes getting in the door any easier and you likely won't be eligible for benefits.
