Presenteeism has become such a downhill battle. Managers want to keep us but when you hit your max with points...it's the wood shed for you. Instead of keeping GREAT Cast Members and giving them a second chance they automatically fire them and try to hire new cast members who have been such a gamble with the company. You dont know how there disney performance will be and yet you aren't sure how long they will even stay with disney. for all we know, you see a new trainee one week and you never will here from them again. SO BASICALLY, THEY ARE TRYING TO FIX A LEAK THAT KEEPS DRIPPING! With the mandatory shift extensions....it's really hard to keep us. Some cast members I know have worked 14 hours shifts! And that's just in merchandise, I know foods is in deep trouble. And for a slow season...why am I still working 5 days a week? Nothing has changed since summer. The words ER (Early release) and ADO (additonal day off) are no longer in the disney dictionary. Sorry...this post has turned out to be a bit longer than I thought. Oh and btw...in correction to this article. The max points a CR can hit in one year is 24. Thats equivalent to 8 call outs or 16 lates. We can't miss 24 days in a year. That would mean that we are allowed 72 pts in a year.
