    I got that same postcard... except, they interviewed me and asked me to come in at 5 AM to do some tagging of the merch! Grr.

    They should be so lucky.

    I've been in retail my whole life and love nearly every minute of it. It is so easy to make your customer's day with a smile, a little good service and some kind words. People aren't used to it these days and you can tell how grateful they are.

    Retail is a funny thing. If you love people and interacting with them, it's great. After 40 years of doing this, It still amazes me. Customers really do all the hard stuff. I unlock the door and then all day long, they proceed to walk in and offer me money for the goods I stock. How can I not be nice to them? I should be the grateful one . . and obviously, I am.

    Barbaraann, you're like the nicest lady on the internet. I know what an asset you would be for any store. So, if you're up to the task and it won't cause world war III at home, I think the world is just waiting for some of that Barbaraann magic.

    Re: So, should I apply for a job at the Disney Store?

    So, do I get myself back to the mall tomorrow, and write down that phone number and call, or do I wait until the store opens? When I was there, they had a big partition in front of the storefront saying a Disney Store was Coming Soon.

    I came home, and went on the Mall website, thinking that I might find something. I also went on the Disney Store website, and I didn't see anything.

    I am not too saavy about these things. Also I am on vacation twice til September, so should I just wait. After all I have waited for 40 years. All opinions are welcome.

    Totally call the number - it's so much better to get in before it opens.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    What I'd do is...
    Write up a C.V...and get the email address for the disney store and send it via email...then they'll pick up that you are computer literate, and it'll get to them quicker than through the mail...

    About waiting until after your trip to DL? Id write in your cover letter on your C.V that you will be on vacation these certain dates...A good cover letter is essential as it stands out against C.V's without a cover letter.
