My son is finishing 2 terms of Career Start this May. First term he was a lifeguard and was switched to QSFB when Blizzard closed for rehab. Second (current) term he is a character attendant (and LOVES it!). He was told today, that since he extended, and since he switched roles, he can ONLY apply for jobs as a character attendant (and there is a 10 year wait list ). He is not allowed to apply for any other roles, and he is not allowed to audition either. He was waiting to get into the stilts class, but was told he couldn't do that either, since he was not eligible for a role there. He wants more than anything to stay in Orlando and obtain a full time position with Disney. (we know he is not alone ) And we thought all along that since he was trained in 3 business lines that that would be great for landing a position once the program ended. All his hopes were dashed today. I was expecting that the Career Start kids would be given some sort of "preference" in landing real jobs (hence the name CAREER START) and would not be banned from even applying. What's the deal? Did he get some wrong info- or is that really the case?
