I worked at Disney while I attended UCF.
kids coming from UVA, UT Austin or UW.
CPs seemed to be of two mindsets. Some were like me, just enjoying a semester or 2 working but really just living in a college dorm essentially and having fun. But for a lot of the kids, this was an opportunity to get out Nowheresville, USA
Certainly not ivy leagues either.
But yes, a lot get sucked in. A lot extend their program and then they realize they dont want to go back to University of Phoenix main campus and just work at Disney.
It can be summed up really easy. 'Are you working to change anything?' - If they can't outline what they are doing to change things - then sure, call it smug... because yes, as an adult I expect people to look out for themselves and their future. Not just complain about it.
Paying off loan debt faster? , go to a public university rather than private. Less loans to pay off. Feeling adventurous and want to serve your country? Go the ROTC route and free college. I worked through school, winter , summer break and didn't make excuses and put on my big boy pants. I'm glad I took investing classes in school and started early.
You really have no clue when it comes to contracts, labor law and labor relations. A company offering an extension doesn’t mean a union can’t strike.
Is there a way to get the TLDR on the main points of this post?
If Bob&Bob put on their best face in these uncertain times and convince Wall Street on a turnaround and restructuring plan then that is what Wall Street and company shareholders want to hear.The Q3 earnings call is tomorrow at 4:30 Eastern. Should be an interesting conference call / bloodbath.
Just looking around when I was there and even considering the limited park & resort operations, their cost center / profit center number have got to be scary.
DIS buying opportunity on tomorrow's drop for my son's account though...
Lol, thanks. What areas have layoffs been started?TL;DR/ Disney's in a bad position financially, layoffs already started, layoffs to continue, expect cuts in the parks, Iger's legacy is tarnished.
Also car buying advice, something about bootstraps, and avocados are good.
That's neat. I wouldn't mind working at UCF for a few years to be close to the parks, but they dont seem to ever need profs with my background. Looks like a fun school though.
Cold War and/or British history.
I'll look into Valencia, thanks for the tip.
