I found the following post in a different thread slightly amusing considering all of the recent fierce debate about the insufficient pay of attractions CM's, their incredible skill levels, the difficulty of the job, the discussion over amusement park "trade schools", etc. in several other posts.
Again, nothing against this poster (seems like a very nice kid and I am sure he will be a great CM) but I don't think you can make a better argument than the true story of a high-schooler with zero experience walking in and walking out as an attractions CM - now, remind me why they should make above minimum wage again? (That was sarcasm, honestly you don't need to repost all of the reasons again).
Here is the post, enjoy:
As I near the end of my high school years, I finally decided it was time for me to get a job, especially because I need to pay for the Disneyworld trip I'll be taking this summer, so I decided to try to get a job at the place I love the most, DISNEYLAND! Last Saturday, me and two of my friends went to the casting center to apply for attractions position. We first filled out one paper scheduling application and two online applications. One of my friends was not able to get through because she had scheduling issues in the summer. Anyways, my other friend and I got through that part and then watched an Intro video of working at Disneyland, all about the "Disney Difference" and such. After that part, we had to take this online "interview". It asked questions about our personality and such, to see if we had the "stuff" to be a castmember. Such fun! hahah =P
Anyways, both my friend and I were invited to have an interview, but were asked to return next week for the interview, so my interview was actually yesterday. My interview included one other person I did not know. She was actually returning to work at Disneyland after she worked here for 3 months last summer. The interview went pretty well for me. The other girl did not get the job, but I did! I am now an Adventureland Attractions CM. I have paperwork and traditions coming this week and I could not be more excited. Since I'll be spending more time at the park now, maybe I'll be able to see you guys!
Anyways, just thought I'd share my experience with you guys.
