    In May and June of 2012 there was no ability for CM's not on the Cars Land Test & Adjust team to pick up a paid shift to test ride Racers.

    There was some sporadic ridership offered in May for Cars Land opening crew CM's from Foods and Stores - in addition to the usual daily test ridership of Cars Land Attractions CM's. And then in the last week or so before June 15th there were a few All-Calls placed for open ridership - but CM's had to come on their own time or be released by their area management. TDA arrived in huge numbers in the Timon parking lot - I worked a few of those days and rode Racers a few times during the All-Calls and remember specifically all the TDA people abandoning their desks.

    Never before has a system been put in place where any DLR CM can pick up a paid shift to test ride a new attraction. That's new for SW:GE and Rise.
    CM's are being paid for the RoTR previews because they are required to devote a whole day to riding it. It's not only the ride being tested but the boarding group system which will likely be implemented once it opens to the public. That system requires a lot of free time. I feel like you should know this?

    Yes, the threads are about all sorts of great topics. Yet somehow, Chapek somehow gets brought into ALL of them. I could spend about five minutes and find probably over 30 posts in the last week that mention his name. As for the poster, it was on this thread, I'm assuming she deleted that post when she deleted her account. I'm sure she didn't feel super great how people started responding that her positive experience meant NOTHING because Chapek is "Ruining the value and experience of the parks" and insinuating/joking that the hug she got from Chapek was sexual harassment.
    This is what MiceChat has become and this is why many have found greener pastures elsewhere. A few posters here with strong opinions dominate these boards and turn every single thread into a referendum on corporate management. It's boring and simplistic and it's why I rarely check in anymore. Cheers!

    They want a well-trained corporate minion who is not capable of independent thought but only does what they are told.
    Company does not want work as a Team.........
    and Why there so many Issue !

    Based on her background, it seems very confusing why Campbell was selected, as she has worked more in TV industry, while serving the company. While one could argue that that she was brought in for the 'experiences' part of the division, she seems more likely to run ABC or Disney+ in the future, than Parks head.

    It still feels like the company is blacklisting any park workers for the job.

    However this seems not to be true. The CM previews is going to be the ridership, as no one was scheduled a paid ridership shift.

    Maybe you should ask Grant? I am sure he is working with plenty of people that were there.
    I wouldn't know one way or another, and it's possible you are both right. Maybe the distinction is "any" CM?

    You make passive watching seem like a bad thing. I think Smugglers Run would be better if it were more passive.

    Also, sounds like the big PR push is a plan to schedule CM's to be test riders on Rise for the first two weeks of January. CM's would be paid to ride Rise for a 6 to 8 hour shift. That's the new version of soft openings to prevent the Guests from having too much access to it before official opening because it breaks down so often. They have to get more testing and training in so they'll use paid CM's to act as Guests.

Another $1000 bonus like we got in '18? Free admission to Skywalker for all CM's at the shuttered AMC? They're finally going thru with Josh's plan to boot SodexoMagic to the curb in 2020 and elevating the CM food beyond prison level catering?

    Rebecca might want to buy some raingear if she's gonna try and be in the park this week to roll out the announcement with a DLR Communications department photographer following her for fake-happy photos with bewildered CM's to put on The Hub. Josh was out there on busy holidays no matter the weather and he rarely had a mandatory photographer. Josh just did it cause it was his business - not for the PR.
    Soooo waiting on the doom and gloom analysis that they're letting us bring a friend or family member on Rise of the Resistance before it opens. I'm not fake happy about that, I'm genuinely excited.

    The Hub, you need to be a CM to access.
