  • Has anyone seen the new guy?

    I believe it's been a while since Ed Grier took over as President of the DLR. Am I wrong? I haven't seen any pictures of him at the resort. We used to see pictures of Matt all the time. Has anyone seen him yet? Just curious...

    He was at a showing of Fantasmic! a few weeks ago. He's definitely not a fan of CM's grouping. He took away 6 badges on the spot that night for grouping.

      Spit and polish kind of guy?

        What do you mean grouping? Did he take away their name badges?

          grouping is when a bunch of cms are standing around with other cms talking and such, not helping our guest.It's a big NO NO, never group.He took there ID cards I believe, which means they were probally fired or in really big trouble.

            Multiple CM's in the same area = Grouping

            He took away their ID's. Basically fired them on the spot.

            It's not that he's not a nice guy. Actually from what I hear, he was amazingly cool when you actually sat down to talk to him. He was there with his kids that night. It's just he doesn't stand for people screwing around on the company dime.

                Did you see him do this first hand? It's very big on company policy to do such things backstage and out of guests view, most of the time they will ask for your managers name and than radio call your manager who will schedule an abrupt appointment where you will be Terminated or spoken with, etc...I've been with the company long enough to know how it works & see it quiet often lol! i've never been in trouble, I swear!

                      Yeah, highly doubt that was done in public. He's going to top bad show with bad show!

                        From what I hear he is a very cool guy and just wants things done right at disneyland.I'm sure what needed to be done backstage was done backstage.

                          Is this something new? I worked for DL for five years and never heard of this happening. Of course, I am oblivious most of the time. At least my wife tells me that.

                            Ignoring where it happened, I'm glad that it did happen. Shows that he's not going to take any nonsense from anyone. I think that's a good attitude. Be a great guy, friendly and nice, but still strict. Reminds me of Walt. Great guy, fun loving, but demanded the best from everyone.

                                Very true. Raising the standards is not a bad thing.

                                  If this happened as posted am sure the unions lawyers are drooling like vultures. Per the master services agreement you can not be terminated in that maner. And if this happened the CMs lawyers would be doing interviews with the press. Anyone remember when the park fired a bunch of ticket takers who they thought were stealing tickets? The company lost a lot of money on that one. And the security department was cleaned out after the reports of abuse during intearagations was made public. Several of those seperated CM made enough to retire early.

                                    I like what I've been hearing about him. There is a report that he sent limos to the castmember parking lot to pick up the castmembers one morning. Then he greeted them as they were dropped off at the resort. I think he wants everyone to know that he is finally here and on the job.

                                    As long as he continues to support maintenance and improvements on the parks, I'll stay a supporter.

                                      I applaud what he did. I used to be in management and let me tell you it pissed me off to no end when some of my ex co-workers would just stand around doing nothing!

                                      Anyway, on a side note, hopefully those CMs were within their 90 day period. If any of them really wanted to they could take it to court for wrongfull termination. In CA a company pretty much has to give multiple talks about the same subject before they can fire someone, unless they're within their 90 day period.
