    I too, got really excited when I saw this thread! I am currently a cast member at WDW and am enjoying it.

    I was hoping to meet someone who is a nurse and, like letina's co-worker, works for Disney per diem - just want to see what their experience is. That is what I am possibly thinking of doing while I am going to nursing school.

    I remember on a visit speaking with the nurse at the clinic in the Magic Kingdom when my daughter needed a band-aid. She did not speak ill of WDW, but she said the pay was less than average-about on par for a Dr's office, which is about what she did-clinic work. I didn't sound interesting enough to make me want to work there, although.

    The hospital where I work seems to have the same philosophy about worker enlightenment. We have quarterly seminars that are mandatory. It seems the focus is not just service recovery, but employee retention as well. So if you don't attend, you are fired. So much for loyalty.:trout:

    One of my friends used to work at the Disney Store in Ontario. One day he was taken into the back room and questioned by his manager as to why he was not smiling all of the time. (no, really, that's what happened)

    She told him that if he could not smile all of the time, he would be sent home.

    I asked him if she offered to pump sunshine up his......to ensure a day-long smile!

    Any way, I also experienced a CEO who moved from the US to Canada with the Disney philosophy.....didn't fly. I'm sure it's great for companies whose only objective is to ensure that their customer is happy.....healthcare...we tend to go for alive over happy, wouldn't you say? Alive and happy...that's a bonus.

    That being said....I'm seriously considering the jazz hands at our next staff meeting.....
    This happened to my partner and I both when we worked the afternoon shift in Ambulatory Surgery - our supervisor called us both in, concerned because we weren't SMILING when we came to work.
    I was never unhappy when I came to work, but didn't feel the need to paste a stupid grin on my face when I walked in the door.
    So, for awhile, whenever we saw her, we would look at her with insane stupid grins on our faces - and anytime we saw her with a grimace on her face - we'd remind her to SMILE.:trout:

    I don't mind being friendly, but don't call it being "on stage." There comes a point where the customer service just crosses a line. This has crossed the line and gone so far that it can't even see the line anymore.
    May not get respect as a professional nurse, but hey, maybe now I can get respected as a professional actor!
    in one job we had to take a "customer service class" - required- the theme - "the patient is ALWAYS right - if pt is wrong refer to rule number one hahaha.

    It is a shame that people have to be taught this. I have had many jobs and was never disappointed to see people stroll in half an hour late, wearing ripped clothing, talking on their cell phones while doing their job, horse play in the hallways, etc. So, I think instead of offending people by having a program called how to act like a professional, they are watering it down with this Disney crap. Yes, you are always being watched by someone, you have someone's life in your hands, look like an adult, not a child.

    However, I think if management had realistic expectations from nurses: gave them time for lunch, time to chart etc, we would not be so offended by them trying to push this on us.
