hey guys I have also applied for spring 2013, I had my phone interview this morning, wendi was great she made it feel like a chat not an interview. She said I would hear within 2 weeks but to check back everyday. My top choices are concierge, hospitality and merchandise. Has anybody worked these roles before.

I was an ICP back in 2008 as a vacation planner so if anyone has any questions, I would be happy to anwser. How did everybody else's interview go?

i just got an email that said i need to schedule my phone interview within 3 days. Does that mean I have to COMPLETE the phone interview in 3 days or that i just have to find a time to take the phone interview within 3 days even if the day that I schedule it for is, say, a week from today?

You just have to schedule within the next few days.

I had my phone interview on Tuesday night with Margie. She was nice but the interview went really quick compared to last year. I goofed and only selected three top hospitality roles which she commented that may hurt me by not choosing outside of hospitality (I chose Disney Desk, Front Desk and Guest Services. During the interview, she said she would add Attractions as the hospitality roles are limited (at least in Disneyland hotels).

Who else has applied for Disneyland College Program? I feel like I'm in the minority!

This time around I'm hoping for Character Attendant, Attractions, Merchandise, or Main Entrance Operations. I just want to get back to Disney!

Pixie dust and purple (happy) thoughts to all applicants!
Oh I have a question or two. You did custodial, how was it? From what I've read so far it isn't bad. I like the idea of the freedom to walk around the parks. I put it as a higher interest position on my application. Would you recommend it or no? What was the worst situation you found yourself in?

First Time

This is my first time applying for the DCP and i am so nervous. i got through the WBI and now i have one week until my phone interview. i am a naturally upbeat outgoing person but im afraid im going to choke up because i want to do this so bad. i have only ever been to disney once in my life and that was like 10 years ago. i was reading about possible questions and i saw a lot of people posting about how they were asked their favorite park and/or ride. im nervous that i wont be able to answer that well since i have only been the one time and i was like 11 years old. any pointers would be really appreciated. thanks! i hope to see all of y'all in the Spring!!!

Hey guys! My name is Kat, and I've applied for the 2013 Spring Advantage! My phone interview is on Tuesday, and my top roles are Vacation Planner, Concierge (not likely to get...haha), Photopass, and FSFB. Anyone ever done Vacation Planner before? I really want it... but I feel like it's one kinda like concierge, where there's not really that many spots to fill for it... but I'll be happy with anything of course!

This was my first time applying, but being pended is like being on a waiting list so its a longer wait and you could be waiting very long just to get rejected. I assume people would be pended because they still aren't sure if you fit in anywhere or they are going to see if something they know you would be good at would open up.

Phone Interview

Hiya guys and gals ! Just applied for the Spring 2013 CP :D
I was wondering, how long did you have to wait for your phone interviews? I went to schedule it, and the only one was 11 days away, 10 from today. I'm super nervous, and I really would love this oppertunity. Any tips for phone interviews?
I put different choices for the roles, but I really want:
1. Attractions
2. Full food service
3. Character attendant

Eep ! So excited

I got pended last time and waited about 6 weeks after I received the "pended" email (if I remember right) until I got rejected (I interviewed around January 24th and got the rejection email on April 18th). I applied for Disneyland in the hospitality roles (Disney Desk, Front Desk and Guest Services). What I was told was that they are still considering you strongly when you are placed on the wait list but haven't found the right spot. Does anyone else have more information?
