My DD who was just accepted and will be doing Quick service Food & Beverage has 2 friends who just applied. Both have just done their interviews. One yesterday and the other was the beginning of this week. Time will tell. They were both told 2 weeks to wait.

I've done some research on Disney. Learned about their exceptional customer service in my hospitality classes. I have been practicing with my mom this morning, making sure that I smile when answering questions. I'll have to remember to grab a notepad to jot things down on. I pride myself on remembering names and using them when on the phone when I talk to someone. What youtube videos did you watch?

Oh thats all really good! I don't remember the specific ones, I just searched phone interview tips dcp and a ton came up! More than I expected. They were really helpful because they gave example questions that they had been asked. When I had my interview none of the questions surprised me because of this!

Well I did some practicing this morning. I waited around for my interview and Bonnie called me at 12:14 because they were having some technical issue this morning. I think I did well with my interview, it lasted almost 25 minutes which shocked me. Bonnie did a great job making comfortable and I made her laugh a few times. I made sure to sell my strengths in customer service, and asked questions regarding the education program, and working overtime and made sure that I told he I would be willing to work any day of the week and anytime of the day. I'm taking the length of my interview to be a good sign, because if she really didn't care what I had to say or didn't think I was a good candidate she probably wouldn't have stayed on the phone with me for as long as she did.

Now all I have to do is anxiously wait for the next few weeks to pass by to see if I get an offer. Praying that this dream comes true!

I had quite a journey from application to acceptance! I applied on the 8th of February, had my phone interview on the 11th of February (didn't have to do WBI because I'd done it for Spring), and was told I was pending on February 15. I got my three week reminder on March 8th, and was finally accepted on March 13th for merchandise! :D

In Progress

Mine says in progress, I'm not exactly sure what that means other than playing the waiting game. Hopefully it all works out and I get my dream come true!

That's what my DD's says too. Keep in mind this was a holiday weekend and even though WDW was open some offices might have been closed. I'm thinking after Monday things will move along again. My DD had a long interview too and a classmate of hers who worked at WDW at one time told her if you have a long interview it is a good sign. Hope so.....good luck.

"In Progress" is what it will say until you're accepted/declined. If you're declined, it will say "No Longer In Consideration." If you're pended, it will also say "In Progress," but it will state in an email that you are pending (but a pending status will not be indicated on the dashboard). It took me 9 days to get accepted (no pending), and it said "In Progress" the entire time. In fact, if I remember correctly, after I got my acceptance email my dashboard still said "In Progress" because it took a little while to update.

Also, while a long interview may be a good sign, I've heard of people being accepted with a 9-10 minute interview. I think it really just depends on who the interviewer is. (Note: I have no idea if having a long interview is good - the only people who know that is Disney).

Good luck on getting accepted

Hello!
I had my interview Monday March 25th, my interview lasted around 36mins...
I don't know if that's bad or good, tho my interviewer was really nice and we shared a few giggles. Later that night I received a thank you for the phone interview you will hear back within 2 or 3 weeks.
On the 27th I received an "Document to Complete" Email to submit an
"WDW College Program Addendum Application"
Did that.... Now I haven't heard anything since then.

You won't hear anything else until about 1-2 months before you head down

Thank you luvmylatte. I almost forgot it was a holiday weekend in a way since we had spring break a few weeks ago for school it has kind of thrown me off and with no little kids in the family anymore we as a family don't make a big deal out of Easter like we used to lol! I'm hoping and praying that it's a good sign, I just keep telling myself it is.

Thank you for wishing me luck. I know a classmate of mine has been accepted for costuming, I had no clue that she applied until we were talking about class this afternoon, Lol! Unfortunately I haven't gotten any emails at all from the program, I applied on monday, was busy tuesday and had been checking my email but saw nothing and figured I would just give it a shot and look at my dashboard and saw that they wanted me to do a WBI and then as soon as I finished that it said to do a phone interview. My theory with the long interview was that must have liked what I said because if they weren't interested they would not keep asking questions, or maybe they just didn't want to be rude who knows all I know is that I'm staying positive about this whole process.

I lucked out and only had to wait four days from interview to acceptance. I interviewed on March 21st and was accepted on March 25th.

I did feel pretty good after my interview, even though I was definitely nervous beforehand! But I did my research and was prepared for pretty much all of the questions my interviewer, Ian, threw at me. I also had a lot of practice interviewing (face-to-face) for accounting internships last year, so in comparison a phone interview was a bit easier. Interviews are always somewhat nerve-wracking though!
