VERY much this. I've always said no matter what your job is, it is important to the process. Do it to the best of your ability and with a pleasant attitude ~ especially in the service/retail industry. You should never demean a worker for how much they make, their job is important. Every job is important.
To answer the OP ............. yes I have seen what you see and honestly I think it's two fold.
(1) Disney is increasingly using temporary help aka CP kids there for mostly 4-5 months. They are barely trained and thrown out there. They work long hours and their only social time might be while working. They aren't picky and many show up that have never even worked a job, not prepared for work at Disney for sure. Some sign up only to have fun. They are currently building another large complex for them and unless they shut down Vista ... that means they are increasing this force that truly has no allegiance to the company.
It seems like they are being less selective with accepting people into the college program. I did the program when they only had Vista Way. I heard many people that did not get into the college program. Now it seems like they aren't as selective due to they have more housing options (Patterson and Chatham Square, Commons.) I did just hear that they are tearing down Vista Way due to the I-4 construction so not sure if the new complex will house more than Vista Way did. I do know that Disney was stacking people in the apt. They were placing 3 people in a room made for 2 people.
I admit I haven't been back since 2000 and I worry that the quality experience has gone down and I will be disappointed in what I see. I will defiantly write a trip report when I go back.
