I recently applied to Disneyland as a Guest Research Specialist. I had an in person interview just a few days after I applied. My recruiter told me that all summer positions had been filled, which was a bit discouraging. She did, however, say I would be a great fit for the position and put me on a waiting list.
At the end of the interview she said they won't be hiring until the fall, and that they MAY call me then.
Now for my questions:
First of all, how accurate was she in saying they're filled for summer? I always assumed Disneyland was employed by such a large amount of people that the turnover rate would be pretty high.
Second, is it likely the position will open up during summer?
Third, I'm worried that by Fall I will be in a large pool of other applicants and will be forgotten. Is all hope lost?
I'll appreciate any and all info people have about how Disneyland Resort hires new castmembers.
