    Re: Got the job!

    Welcome to "highschool with ashtrays".

    Few tips:

    1. Depending where you'll be working, you may have to deal with highschool-level drama coming from people two to three times your age. It may shock you at first, but just try to expect it.

    2. Cover your backside. There may be people who try to backstab or sabotage a new CM during their "trial" period in order to ensure they don't lose any of their valuable hours.

    3. Have fun and keep telling yourself that you work at Disneyland. That may help you ignore some of the bad stuff.

    Congratulations! Merch is fun! I know a lot of people have their probs with working at Disneyland, but I had a blast. I made some great life long (so far!) friends and took away some wonderful memories.
    But since when did the stock rooms become haunted? Have we had a lot of deaths I don't know about since 1999? If by haunted you mean to describe some of management's personalities then I can see what you mean... haha!

    Congrats! Now a bit of advice: keep your online and real lives separate. Being known for being on discussion boards is not exactly a helpful qualification where promotion is concerned. In other words, don't identify yourself online.

    Don't let senior CMs make you bitter. Let them make themselves miserable if they want to, but you are under no obligation to join the pity party (and trust me, if bitterness ever comes, it's REALLY hard to shake)

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...
