Congrats by the way.
Yeah, I had 1 second interview, which happens to be the PI I'm in IS for. The other 7 I applied to are still stuck in IP. I guess we just got to have faith that they call in the next week and a half.

I know someone on this thread said that when they had applied for a CP Alumni Only PI they didn't hear back until after the deadline that they didn't get it, but maybe this year is different.

I know that none of us have any insight into the methodology of when and why Disney lets people know that they got a PI, but this year they seem to be putting people in NLIC status, even for the Alumni Only PIs on a daily basis.

I have a friend that yesterday got NLIC for his Alumni Only PI. I told him I was still in interview stage and he joked and said "At least you made it through today's cut."

I honestly don't know how they're doing this whole NLIC/offers thing, but I just wanted to post this to encourage people that maybe we all have a chance up until 12/7. We only have a week left of waiting. Good luck to everyone

You should probably make your own thread for that question as it is kind of irrelevant to our topic. We also are trying to get a PI, most of us haven't done one before, so we can't analyze what's a good plan or not.

I have no idea if this is a good plan or not but a portion of the MI's that have posted their info have not done a CP. I think a CP is the 'foot in the door' for things like operations, any type of guest service PI but again that depends on how much experience you've gained during your college years in other jobs and internships.

Your best bet for any career path is to get local internships in the field you desire during your college years and work to apply those experiences to the PI/MI that you want to apply for with Disney.

People change a whole lot during college. What you are interested in now, may have nothing to do with what you end up doing after graduation.

I also expressed interested in the Epcot one primarily because I thought that would involve a lot of interaction with international CMs and I love people from all over. I know that every area in WDW has Cast from all over the globe, but Epcot especially so I studied abroad in Europe over the summer too so I'm just like I love foreign cultures and stuff.

I'm really not picky though with the PIs. The CP recruitment one or other CP related ones are great too. I loved my CP and am currently a campus rep so I'm all about being an info resource for CP potentials/participants.

Sorry I know y'all don't care. I am just so ready to find out. It's unbelievable to me that it takes them so long to make decisions.
It actually doesn't take the departments long to make decisions. I think from first look to making our decision took less than two weeks. It's all the other parts of the process. I mean, you can't even start looking at applicants until interviews are done, right?

Yeah, but even interviews ended long long long ago. At least for me and I think for most others as well. So I guess we'll see.

Apparently, the deadline has been moved to 12/14. If you call casting that's what they're saying now.

You're kidding?! Why would they do that? Had my heart set on knowing one way or the other within the week.

Sorry if this has been covered before earlier in the thread, but there are a lot of pages to go through!

Does anyone know the pay range for the professional internships? My brother is applying to a PI at the Walt Disney Studios in California. The position is open to graduate school students. It asks him to put like an expected salary range or something like that on his application, and he doesn't want to over or under estimate too much.

Thanks in advance!

What type of role is he applying for? Example, production, animation, accounting/finance, marketing, etc...

This will play into the salary range

I noticed that the DCP deadline is 12/14 so I am not sure if casting was referring to that or the PI's.

Honestly that would make more sense to me, personally. If all the offers for a PI go out by 12/7 then they have a week to figure out who is moving from the DCP to accept a PI, which then frees up space for those pending DCP people that can hear back by 12/14. Oh goodness gracious. This process will be the death of me.
