    Castmember benefits?

    I hope I'm not invading anyone's privacy, but I'm wondering what benefits you get, if any, while working for DL? I'm going to apply for a job there soon, and I'm seeing if anyone could let me know =]

    Thank you in advance!

    Great info, thanks! But what are sign-ins? Is that getting your guests in free, or..?

    Re: Castmember benefits?

    Back in day when I worked there...

    We could sign up to 4 people 4 times a quarter. So we had 16 sign ins, but you could only use 3 from Jan to March. Then 3 more from April June, ect.

    But that was long ago. I don't know if it's still the same...

    A CM has the opportunity to sign in up to three guests sixteen times a year. There are a few block out times where you can't sign in guests, like the weeks around Christmas.

    Also, you only get medical/dental/whatever benefits if you're full time...and you really can't hire into the park full time, so it's a waiting game.

    No full-time benefits for new hires, I hear...but you can make all the company-approved Magic you want!! (that really was meant to sound cheerier than it came out...)

    So even if you apply for full-time, you'll likely not get it?

    Nope, I had to wait 7 months before I got it and sadly I had to leave the land I love in order to get it. Oh well, Fantasyland treats me nice.
