Any tricky CP interview questions?
 
Tried searching but didn't turn up much.

Anyways, just wondering if there are any specific/tricky questions that CP interviewers usually ask? Haven't exactly been through many job interviews at all, but I understand most of the standard questions. Any Disney/CP specific to be prepared for? LMK. Thanks.

naw, they're really pretty typical.

i have read here that they ask you a space moutain question and if i am correct it goes something like this, "if a guest wants to go on space moutain but he is too short what do you do?" i don't know the answer because i did not get asked this

I never got that one but I would apologize, explain why it was unsafe and make some height-appropriate suggestions.

the specific CP questions relate to the role you decide to choose. so once you pick your first choice role, think about some probs that could arise and think about how you would deal with it.

Hmmm, let me see. When I interviewed, I actually interviewed for performer (since that was first choice). But if I had to guess, I would think:
*closing the line
*helping a guest find a specific character
*explaining why certain characters don't talk
*what would you do if a guest was being inappropriate towards a character?

If I can think of anymore I will post them. Good luck with your interview.

My top choices are Vacation Planning and Hospitality
 
what role-specific questions should i expect?

If they do ask you a question like that (the Space Mountain question), they would be looking more for attitude than a "correct" answer. You would be trained in how to deal with typical situations like that.

Part of your answer might be that you would EXPECT such training, and would not expect to be assigned to operate a ride without proper training. Your main answer might be that the rules are for the safety of guests and must be followed, but you would be as nice about it as possible.

As most everyone has said they are not looking for the correct type of answer just how would you handle certain situations. During my first interview for my first program they asked me questions such as what was my favorite ride, my favorite character and how was I like my favorite character, and a bunch of general "what would you do" questions. I personally found interviewing for my second program the hardest because all of the questions were geared more towards how did you handle this type of situation in your former work location and what did you want to get out of doing a second program.

Just thought I would bump this up again for Fall 08 CPs!

What kind of questions should you expect for Character Performer or Hospitality? (My top two)

When I auditioned, I had one question pertaining to performer. It was "if you were friends with Pooh, and there was a kid in line who had been waiting for a long time and was getting impatient, what would you do?".
