    2 questions

    1. I read somewhere online that a guy's granddaughter could not get hired at disney cause she had horrible credit. Just wondering if this is true?
    2. Anyone ever read The Dark Side of Disney. Im reading it right now on a website i found online. Now im not gonna do any of the stuff that's mentioned in the book but it definitely makes for an interesting read. What are your thoughts about the book if you've read it?

    1). Disney runs credit on new hires, like many (most) companies do. Poor credit can factor in a hiring choice, especially if the position allows access to cash and merchandise. However, if she wasn't hired, it is very unlikely she was given the reason why.

    2). Dark Side of Disney is interesting. As a note though, Adamthewoo has since been banned for life from Disneyworld...

    Im sure there was more to it than bad credit, like England said almost every company does a back round check that involves credit.. I know lots of folks dont have wonderful credit these days if that were the deciding factor Disney would have no employees as Florida in that area was one of the hardest hit for jobs and foreclosures so maybe they just didnt gel.

    A few months ago I read the Kindle sample of the book and found it to be crude, poorly written, juvenile, and a total waste of my time. The cover of the book is exploitation at its most cringe-worthy. And to top it all off, there is no useful information in it. AVOID, AVOID, AVOID!!!
