College Program Questions Thread, Pt 3

Hey everyone. It looks like now is a good time to start up a new thread. I can't believe how fast the other one went (it almost tripled the first one). This is a good place to ask questions, share concerns, and talk about your experiences.

A little bit about myself: I've done the CP 4 times. They are Spring 2005 (Fantasyland merchandise), Fall Advantage 2006 (character attendant), Summer 2007 (Epcot WS custodial), and Summer 2008 (QSFB-Casey's Corner/character attendant). I've been a Campus Rep for 3 seasons, and I will be applying for Fall 2009.

Let the new thread begin!

Wow, they check your nailpolish? That seems a bit extreme

Not all do. But some managers do (especially in food roles).

I'm still in the "it's all so surreal" mode. I check in 3 weeks from today for Spring Merchandise. I'm the 3rd member of my family to do a merch CP, following in my 2 daughters' footsteps, which makes it even WEIRDER!

Thank you, Joanna, for all you do for CP hopefuls. You have been a real help to me making the decision to apply and answering all the silly little questions that haunt me late at night.

I wonder who the oldest CPer ever was???

I couldn't say, but I know we had a couple Canadian Cultural Cast members working in Food and Bev that were mid 40s!

I talked to a woman at Epcot doing research who told me she was 57 when she did her CP....she then went full time.

You're welcome. It's no problem at all (and is why I became a campus rep).

Hey guys, just thought I'd say thanks to everyone who gave me their congratulations on the previous thread

I'm gonna be doing QSFB which I understand you've done before, Joanna?

I've read the role description etc, but what do you ACTUALLY do?

Thanks!
