    I was wondering if anyone could tell me what "TA" means, as in the job title: Statistical Specialist (TA)

    Thanks!

    Bumping this up.
    Is it possible to find full time employment with enough pay that you can survive on?

    I've been wondering the same thing. From what I've seen/heard it doesn't sound that way, but I'd love to figure out a way to continue working there after I finish my college program, I just don't want to be broke all the time. :lol: I know its not a job you do for the money, but realistically I do need money lol

    If you don't mind a fairly modest lifestyle, and can stick to a budget, then sure.

    On the audition schedule page, there is only auditions for character look alikes in Orlando, FL park for the month of May. Do they update the different audition dates every month? I want to audition to be a face character for the Florida location in July.

    I know that earlier tattoo grid was from 2006. Is there any new information on people hiring into Custodial/Attractions/Guest Services who have wrist tattoos. They both could be covered with some effort. Would I be able to do the work in a long sleeve undershirt or even makeup?

    I know people in both who have them. And for both roles, long sleeves are an option (makeup is probably an option for most locations, depending on where it is)

    And for who works at the Italian pavillion like Merchandise Host/Hostess for the Disney International programs, the rules are the same? I have a little tattoo on my left forearm.
    Can I cover it with makeup like Dermablend or...? Maybe with the long sleeves of the uniform...is it possible? But I don't know if the uniform for the Italian pavilion has long sleeves...
