    Re: Non rehire status

    Amanda, consider (if possible) getting a letter from your current employer attesting to your good attendance/punctuality record at your current job. That may sway someone who is thinking 'how do we know she's changed?'.

    Also, you may want to consider taking whatever you can get at first. If you're trying to get rehired, it looks better not to be too picky, but to be so eager that you'll take anything just to get back on. Where I used to work, if a person turned down a promotion or special assignment because it wasn't to their specific liking, they were usually never offered anything again. We learned quickly to take what was offered and then work towards our 'ideal' job.

    Re: Non rehire status

    I agree to be willing to take whatever is offered. When my friend left, they were a lead. When they were rehired it was on a ODV cart and they gladly took it. They are just glad to be back and are more than willing for however long it takes to rise through the ranks again.

    As someone who has hired many people, that is an excellent suggestion! People will say anything to get a job. Providing something like a letter shows initiative and evidence that the subject behavior has been modified.

    I wish I could get a letter from my current employer, however it is company policy that they do not provide letters of recommendation. I then went to my direct supervisor and asked her and she said she was bound by TransUnion policy (yes I work at TransUnion), that providing any letter or verbal recommendation would be a conflict of interest since I'm still employed there. Come March 31, when our office is closed, then she can assist me with that. I also have some certificates for my consumer compliments and customer service awards that I will be bringing with me to the casting office.

    As for taking what I can get I am more than willing to do so. But due to family responsibilities I need a Monday through Friday job and I can't work evenings. I'm a firm believer if it's meant to be it will be. I may not be a right fit for Disneyland right now.... but who knows in a couple months.

    Re: Non rehire status

    Looking at it from the employee's point of view... I always wonder why anyone would want to go back to a place that they left in the first place whether by their own choice directly (by quitting) or own choice indirectly (by slacking off until they were fired)... It would seem to me like people that remarry someone they had previously divorced. I've seen it happen... but it usually just ends in a second divorce. I would expect that all the things that you didn't like about a job the first time would still be there the second time around.

    Re: Non rehire status

    I loved my job for the most part. Didn't love pushing a heavy ice cream cart through the park... but for the most part I loved it.
    I can't sit here and make valid excuses for why my attendance suffered because there is no excuse. I was immature at that time and decided that it was ok to call out from work.
    That being said... I am not like that anymore in fact I have a near perfect attendance record at my current job. Not once was my attendance an issue.
    I love Disney and I'm looking for my next job to be doing something I love.

    Don't feel bad Amanda, an awful lot of us go through a stage like that at that age. We ultimately end up being the best of employee's.

    Just because an employee quits does not mean they disliked their job or the company, there are many reasons why an employee may have to quit that in no way involve a dislike for the company or job. Seems there is an assumption that someone only quits when unhappy in the job or employer.

    That may be true, but the sentiment expressed by Mackster is the norm in most HR departments - fair or not.

    Then don't even try applying to the parks themselves, because they REQUIRE you to be free on weekends. And because you won't have seniority, you will be scheduled weekends. And evenings. A lot of them.

    Not only weekends, but also holidays as well. They want someone who can be available at ANY time.

    In some companies maybe, in all I have worked for rehires of former employees was all on a case by case basis, and not a blanket policy. I've worked for companies as small as 2 employees up 50,000 employees.
