Understanding this is a non-traditional and immersive hotel offering, am I the only one that finds it odd that nowhere in the job posting is anything listed related to knowledge of Star Wars being important or required for the successful applicant?

Knowledge of Star Wars is not required because Star Wars isn’t important to this hotel — or to Galaxy’s Edge.

I am excited to hear how much this hotel will cost. Also how many people will end up forking over that kind of money.

Availability to work any schedule, including evenings, weekends and holidays. Commitment to diversity and building an inclusive work environment that supports workforce diversity and diverse perspectives, ie hire people based on race, not ability. So you are expected to work like a slave with one hand tied behind your back. Wow, the job sucks. No wonder Disney is posting it on the internet rather than promoting from within its vast talent pool of hotel and cruise personnel. What’s wrong with the manager of Port Orleans? Let him/her do this, he’s got nothing to do for another year.
