I hope it was a good answer lol I hadn't heard anyone on here get past the salon question either soooo ahh I don't know! I hope I just get accepted in general! But I really want BBB hahah
It sounds like a good answer to me! Good luck!

Although I'm not interviewing until January, this is a good thread and deserves a little *bump*

Good luck with interviews!

I'm not interviewing until January (*high fives for FA'10 hopefuls!*), but I just wanted to ask...

I went through this thread, and there's been a few people asking about Costuming questions, but only one person has responded. Costuming is my number one choice, so does anyone else have any tips abou possible questions?

I had been accepted in Costuming and declined (last fall I believe) and have a friend that did it in the spring. When they asked me questions, it was mainly do you think you can work/have no problem with no guest interaction, carry heavy things, wash things. That was pretty much it for me. So I really wasn't asked too much.

Bumping again!

So I was wondering how people who had character performer questions answered them... like what you would do if a child was kicking you, or getting impatient?

I don't know if it was just me, but i actually didn't get any performer related questions in my interview, even though it was my first choice. I just had general questions on why i want to work for disney, what I would look for in a cast member, and about my experiences at the disney parks. and very important: even though it's a phone interview: SMILE!! they will notice!!

I got "what would you do if a child had been waiting to meet you for a long time and was growing impatient in line?" and "what would you do if a child was scared of you?"

I didn't really know how to answer it haha. I think my theatre/dance experience carried me through so she said I could audition. Good luck!

Speaking as being friends with Chuck E at Chuck E Cheese, honestly the best way to get a kid to stop harassing and being rough with you is to ignore the abuse (still offer 'em high fives etc though) and go about hugging, high fiving etc with the rest of the public, and when the guest realizes he's not getting anywhere doing the abuse he stops. I *REALLY* don't know what would be a good answer for the interview, I myself got what would a child do if they were afraid of you. Again, speaking as a friend of Chuck E, BE SUBMISSIVE! Make yourself smaller, act like you're touched but bummed the child doesn't wanna see you, shyly wave at the child and see if you can get them to wave back (that's a big first step for them), hands over your heart, and the like. I explained all this to my recruiter and she seemed to like the response so that's what I said, if you wanna simplify it go right ahead

Edit: Oh! And as far as a guest getting in patient in line, I'd wave excitedly at them and make it clear your anxious and excited to meet them too, and make it big and funny so they're still entertained while waiting in line

Thanks so much! I had a much better idea of how to get scared children to approach you... I was Clifford once for storytime at B&N, haha. Closest thing I have to experience. But yeah, I was a little confused about impatient children because obviously they can't just cut everyone!

I've been looking for this thread. I think it's pretty informative, and since applications are coming out soon, I thought it would be a good time to bump it.

Hopefully some other alums will see this and could post what kind of questions they had for their 2nd (or other) CP interviews. I'm curious what questions they might ask, I'm assuming they'll ask me a general "how was it" type question and maybe why I'm not choosing that role again.

I mentioned this in another thread, but I'll put it here too. Last year I did a search on here for interview questions (including this thread!) and put them all together in a Word document for my DD that she could print out and 'study'. I'll be happy to send it to anyone who wants it - just PM me with your email address.

PS. I think it helped because she was accepted and is now a CP in Costuming at DHS!
