Well I just got off the phone with Becca, and my interview was 25 minutes long and it went really well I think! I asked her some questions and she was so nice, and I think I understand about smiling on the phone because I could definitely tell she was smiling the whole time!(:

Now for the two week wait. I think I'm gonna die!

Custodial really isn't that bad. I worked in Epcot WS, and loved it. I got to see Illuminations every night (as well as the various shows around the countries), and it was very laidback.

Hi! thank you! Right now I do ticket sales at my job, so they mostly asked me about how that relates. If I know how to up-sell and such. They also asked what I thought a Vacation Planner is, and what they do. I think it's important to mention how important of a role it is, and how they help explain the parks to confused guests!

It is a hard role to get. In my opinion, the hardest roles are BBB, Hospitality/concierge and Vacation Planner. Also Character Performer but that's an audition. I'm an alumni so I think that helped in my case.

Good luck!!!

Oh that's good to hear. It's not my very first choice but I think that if I were to get this role I would be happy with it. =)

I think most people I know that have done custodial, have ended up enjoying it.

Interviewed on the 10th and I'm still in progress. I'm definitely losing hope.

Everything I've read has been pretty positive about Custodial. It's like my 3rd/4th choice really. My top choice is Merchandise though.

I had my interview on the 19th! I think it went decently enough, but I'm sure I could have done better. I applied for quite a few roles because I really am willing to do anything Disney gives me, but my top three were Attractions, BBB, and Merch. Now it's just a waiting game to find out if I'm accepted!
