New Roles, New Postings

Ok, so it has been a while since the last post and I do know that I am not updating my blog as much as I used to. I guess some of the delays in blogging can be attributed to being lazy (try doing a 10 hour day on a train and then coming home to post) and some comes from just not much new going on. This time though, I do have some news to add.

That last two days I have been busy training for a new role in Main Street Operations. I am now what is called a Relief Coordinator here at Disney World (Lead at Disneyland). Relief meaning that I fill in when a status coordinator is not available. As a coordinator, you are responsible for ensuring that the area runs smoothly and effectively. My training this week was on Turnstiles learning how to reprint demagnetized tickets and running CDS, Cast Deployment System. CDS for those non-Disney people is what we use to deploy cast members. You sign in and it tells you who to break or what position to pick up. It really is a nice tool. I still have two more days on training for Turnstile Coordinator before I can move on to getting trained in vehicles and Engineer so I can become Main Street Coordinator.

I also have my interview this week for Trainer in Main Street which will allow me to help train new cast members to the area. I am really looking forward to this as I do miss teaching my Lifeguard classes. Both Coordinator and Trainer make me excited to know that all my hard work in the area is paying off. In a recent one-on-one with my area manager, I was told that I have 100% support in the area from the management team and that they would support me in anyway possible. I’m pretty excited about that.

Now, with those new roles, I am still in the process of prepping my resume and practice interview questions for the Guest Relations posting coming up in a few weeks. I have been told that I will get an interview but, I am not taking that for granted. I plan on working my hardest to get in this time just as I did that last time.

Well folks, that is what has been going on with me the last few weeks. I’ll keep everyone posted on my Guest Relations quest in the upcoming weeks.
