    DL resort...not hiring?

    I just found out that I won't be able to work for the Wolfette's school this summer for lack of enrollment in their Summer Program.

    Called the DL Job hot line number and was told I could apply, but no hiring would be on going until August, possibly September for part time work (this doesn't help much since I'll be back working at the school in early Spetember).

    Talked to another CM today who said he had heard the same thing.

    Has anyone else heard this? Do I even have a chance?

    I heard this too, maybe call and ask again? You might get another person with another answer...

    A lot of departments are considered to be overstaffed right now, especially with the College Program kids coming in the past few weeks.

    That's what I was afraid of....oh well, still going down to apply and hope for the best. Can't hurt...right?

    A friend of mine went in about 3 weeks ago to try and get a job at the park.. He was hired, but the only job they had for him was in the parking structure, and only temporary.. The casting people said they didn't have anything else available until September.

    Yeah, they are pretty much booked up. I can feel it by my lack of hours and over staffing during my shifts, and I'm only in one department!

    You could try disneyjobs.com to see if your skill-set lines up with anything listed there for a possible better chance.

    Been there, done that. Doesn't look like they are hiring in the Parks and thats what I'd like to do.

    I'm a full charge bookkeeper by profession, but quit doing that (did it for over 23 years for one company) and just want to fill my time and make a bit of money at the "Happiest Place on Earth"!

    I also am half owner of a Travel Agency....which I've heard Disney Travel needs part timers, but that's not really what I'd like to do.

    Will update after Friday, when I plan to go in and apply.

    Re: DL resort...not hiring?

    We aren't currently in a hiring freeze, it's just that almost all of our positions are filled (according to casting). So we will hire when people quit & get fired....and they will. So just put in your application and let them know that you're interested when something opens up.

    Woohoo! 2nd interview on June 24th!

    They were turning most applicants away (waiting list), but I guess I did something right.

    Hold on a second, I'm on the waiting list... then again, I've already gone through my second interview.

    Which department are you looking at getting into?

    Anything & everything except foods or custodial.

    Got an e-mail from them when I got back this morning. Guess "Stores" is where they want me.

    They seemed to be interested in the fact that I work with children already (and of course their parents).

    Chatted with a CM there for quite a while, she was really curious about my current job.
