    Anyone ever work at Blue Bayou or 33

    Hey there,
    Ive been doing alot of thinking and might move from northern california down to anahiem. Im a server right now with lots of experiance in different restraunts and come highly recomended. Has anyone ever got hired to work at blue bayou or 33? How did you go about it? Whats it like? Money must be good, right. One of the servers there his name was Travis (awesome server, it was like me serving myself lol) said that you have to start as a busser. Any help would be appreciated, I just need some change here.

    I doubt the money is very good with all of the tourists.

    Change can be a good thing, but are you limiting yourself to just working at these two restaurants? I'm sure many CMs have been putting in their time waiting for that same opportunity. Not sure you can just move down and sign up and get your dream position. Is there any other position you might accept?

    Re: Anyone ever work at Blue Bayou or 33

    Well Id like to work inside disneyland for sure. Being a server would be nice because of the tips. I really dont know what other jobs make decent money. If I just pick up and move I wanna know that I have a chance at making enough to survive happily. Im a people person so maybe a tour guide or concierge, I know alot about the park. I dont know really.

    Im bored, lets go to Disneyland.

    MelMel currently works there. I think she is in reception/greeter.

    My wife worked as a server at the Olive Guarden a few years back and you make good money on tips! BB is a "fancy" place and I think would tip more. Unless you get a large group of AP's

    My wife also tried to get a job at DL as a server and its very hard (At least a few years ago) and she said they start you as like a host or cashier and you must graduate into Server even with prior server experance.

    Currently Disney had a lot of layoffs due to new management not putting up with BS, but its now off season so they dont need people as bad. I would wait till the beginning of next summer and check then. You may have much better luck.

    I worked at the olive garden to. Wher I live the tips sucked. i made much more at black angus, but I'm happy I don't have to serve anymore. Were you working at the olive gardne when the had the wine feast at Disneyland. That was so fun. Four days of food and winr pairing at DL. ...They were just building DCA when we went and they did not allow time to go to the park, but thats the year I learned about the AP and the next year I had one.

    Re: Anyone ever work at Blue Bayou or 33

    My aunt worked there when it first opened. She told me about how polite Walt Disney was to her. She told me that he viewed them as family and had them call him "Uncle Walt". Isn't that cool!? My aunt LITERALLY worked for my idol, Walt Disney! That is awsome.

    You do indeed need to start as something other than server - they promote from within. Most female servers started out as hostesses / door persons, and most males as bussers. There's some intermixing of sexes for both those jobs, though. And some servers started in the kitchen, but not many.

    It takes anywhere from one to five years of being "something else" before you are typically given a chance to be a server. Why so long? There aren't THAT many server jobs, and the pay is good enough that turnover is quite low for the well-established high-seniority people. I could probably name ten servers from ten years ago and bet that most of them are still there.

    Club 33 is just about the same time required to be a server; not for nothing is the average age of the server there even higher. Anecdotally it looks to me like C33 CMs are typically not hired to work that location unless they have prior restaurant experience. Might as well stock the premium location with experienced people, right?

    I would have to disagree, if tourists are happy (which they generally are at DLR) then they are more generous with their tipping.

    If you want more information straight from a first hand source, look up melmel in the members list and PM her with any questions you might have. Oh, and provide an email address, because her PC screws up when it tries to send outgoing PMs.
