I just checked in this morning and I'm at the DTD location. Guess I'll see you there!

The F/T and P/T FGITS are typically great, but really the other CPs are what makes the experience the best. Be sure to take the time to realize how lucky you are and how wonderful it is to be working at the Boutique. Also if you need some tips for good stories to tell to entertain your princesses. PM me. Good luck & have fun!!
I'm about to start at DTD, I really wanted MK though. DTD doesn't seem as busy. Did you have a lot of down time? I like to have a lot to do!

AWESOME! I'm at the DTD location too. I just started there last week. Do you know if you're doing hair or cash wrap. I'm cash wrap, which means I work at the register & help out the hair girls when needed.

They didn't say which, but I talked to my interviewer about having some hair experience from my grandmother's salon and I'm a certified make-up artist. I hope I can do hair. Maybe they'll start you on hair eventually. What's your name? I have my "our town" training at DTD on Saturday then I get fitted for the FGIT costume I think.

It really depends on the season, how much down time you will have. It definitely is less busy than MK, but I absolutely loved it and I loved the other CPs when I was there. A lot of the F/T FGITs were awesome as well. I wanted MK initially too, but I was glad in the end that I got DTD. With the Halloween and Christmas parties, it will be busier as well as when it is busy at the parks in general. The down time can get a little frustrating, but then you can go out and Pixie Dust and sometimes even play with the kids etc. Have fun, relax with training, and definitely ask for help you have any questions or problems (you can ask the FGITs who have been there awhile or me if you don't feel comfortable asking them). I hope you enjoy it and that the other CPs are as awesome as they were for me. PM me if you need anything!

I was hair, sorry I can't help too much, but I think if you talk to a BBB manager you might be able to ask if you can get trained as a FGIT to do hair. Good luck!

Haha that's funny. We most likely saw each other or at least passed each other on a regular basis. I mostly stuck to the BBB and FGITs/cashwrap, but I'm ure we came across each other at some point.

This is so funny looking back on now that I've been in the program for almost 5 months. Especially since now I know a lot of the girls who've posted on here.

If any girls that are planning to apply for a CP soon and have any questions, I'm currently at the BBB in MK and can answer some for you. But it sounds like things haven't changed too much since these other girls were there :- ) Except maybe some management and hair rules

Hi everyone. I'm going to be applying for Fall 2011, and I was wondering if anyone who was in BBB could remember any of the interview questions for this position. I'm guessing there will be questions about customer service, working with children, and hair and makeup, but any other tips about what to think about before the interview would be great. I just want to feel as confident and prepared as I can be.

Hey crystalbtrfly07,

I'm at BBB for Spring Advantage 2011 (I arrive 2/21) and I know that during my interview they asked me about my experiences in hair and make up (I do theatrical/SFX makeup, pageant hair and makeup [as needed], and I do my makeup for dance and figure skating along with hair. I was also on makeup crew during theatre in high school) but they also gave me a scenario if I had a timid princess who wasn't as open to having her hair and makeup done what would I do. It wasn't too hard and I just had to think about all of my experiences working at Build a Bear, in childcare, and with my pageant girls that I coach that are reluctant to getting their hair done. That's the one thing that really stood out in my mind about my interview for the CP and BBB if I think of any I'll be sure to post em!! Good luck on your interview!!

Meredith
