Last program took me about 3 weeks to find out. This time I heard back in 1 week! I think answers are coming out a lot faster this time.

Good luck on your interview! I'm sure you'll do wonderfully. Focus on how much you want to do the Program, not the possibility of rejection (believe me, I know how difficult that can be). Just think happy thoughts and remember to SMILE.
Thank you. I just had my interview, it was about 20 minutes. I was nervous so I totally tripped over my words. I think her name was Karen ( I was nervous and I have trouble understanding people sometimes on cell phones). I feel like I didn't do my best. Now I have to wait, and I am more nervous now than before the interview.

Me too! I decided I'm just gonna ignore it for like a week because now everything is out of my hands. But I don't feel very confident because I feel like my phone interview could have gone so much better.

And my interview was yesterday, but I've checked the dashboard like 30 times since then...lol even I can't follow my own advice to avoid this stuff.

His managers never seemed to mind thankfully, as long as he did his job and we didn't "push" guests away with our presence.
Awesome! I'm excited with whatever I get, and couldn't be happier that I was at least accepted. If you're waiting guys, just keep your head up!

I felt confident on some parts of my interview. Some parts I wish were better. I need to focus on my math test tomorrow morning because it's not my strongest subject.

I asked this in the parent's thread .. but I'll ask here, in case someone knows

My son's application is "in progress". He did his phone interview yesterday. Today, he got a message that he has paperwork to fill out and return within 24 hours.

What does that mean? Is it a good sign?

I concluded my phone interview yesterday at 1:30pm, my interviewers' name was Brandon. I believe I started of weak but finished quite strong, I utilized 30mins of the time I had. I spoke a tad bit fast at first. Make sure you guys prepare questions for the end, it always shows your interested. I am so nervous and hope I get to attend Spring Advantage 2013. Never been to any of the Disney theme parks and think this will be an awesome opportunity.

Question A question for you all!

I've posted this on a few threads, but my interview is in 2 hours so I'm just wanting to know what's going on!

But I actually have a question for you guys! Have any of you looked recently at the "Role Descriptions" page on the DCP website? When I applied (2 Wednesdays ago) all the roles were one way, and today they're all different! For example, there is now a "Disney Desk" option under lodging for WDW. That wasn't there when I applied, nor was it even an option to rate my interest on the application... Also, little things like how FSFB got moved to the "Recreation" section instead of the "Food & Beverage" section...? Maybe it's just my computer and it's changing all of the placement of things? Is anyone else confused about this?

The only reason why I'm even concerned about it is because, like I said, some of the roles that are on there now weren't even an option on my application, so I didn't get to mark my interest for any of those, and I am wondering if it shows up as "no interest" to the interviewer/people who choose if I make it in! I'd be willing do do any of those roles, they just weren't on there!

I can't answer your question but am rooting for your son! It sounds like a good sign. Does anybody know? I'm curious as well

Red face The Waiting Game

Had my interview Tuesday night at 9 pm... and I have probably checked my email/ Disney Dashboard maybe...hmm...I don't know... 5 MILLION TIMES!? haha I'm definitely going a little crazy. It took me 4 hours to write an English paper because I literally stopped every 7 minutes to check. It's just so hard to focus on schoolwork when you have such a DISNEY opportunity staring you in the face! Anyone else finding it impossible to focus on anything else besides DCP?

15 days today for my daughter. Her top 3 were attractions, merchandise and recreation. They also talked about front desk. She is getting discouraged seeing people get accepted after 2 days...
