Just got an e-mail today (2 days after phone interview) stating that my status is pending a final decision. wahhhh

This really makes me nervous! Does this mean my chances are low of getting in or I'll have to wait a really long time to find out? It says I will be contacted with an update by April 19th, but that's so far away! I might die..

Congratulations to those accepted! To those of you still waiting to hear back, hang in there!

1. the differences between hospitality and concierge is the difference in work that the roles entail. The Concierge role will be interacting with VIP and Concierge level guests during their stay. The Hospitality role can have you working (or switching around) the Front Desk, Luggage Service, Dispatch, and Telephone room while checking and assisting guests.

2. Yes, it will. You're the character's assistant, helping communicate to the guests what they're trying to say. There's always the opportunity at the end of each day to let the guests know that "Pooh needs to go get some hunny because he has a rumbly tummy".

3. I'd try and be decisive about which roles you are interested, and make your points as to why you chose those roles. Try to have things orderly so they can tell where you'd enjoy being!

There's always the possibility.

You have to keep in mind, those that are pended could be waiting anywhere from tomorrow to the end of the application process. I know several CP's that have been accepted near the deadline, so it's possible.

I'd try checking it in a bit if you're still having the issue with your dashboard. Mine did the same a bit ago, you just need to refresh it. Technology isn't guaranteed sometimes as we've seen.

Have a Magical Day!

I have been accepted for Fall '13 (Merchandise). I accepted and paid my fees. Then I received an e-mail requesting more information (my birthday). I have not received a welcome e-mail that I keep seeing on tumblr that others have received. So I called recruiting and they confirmed my acceptance and dates, but had no answer about the e-mail. What else is on that e-mail besides the cool picture of Mickey Mouse? Thanks for any responses.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

You should receive the Additional Information email, and then about an hour later the "Welcome to the Team" email. I'd try checking your spam folder, or see if it is on your Dashboard yet. The system may be backed up.

The message contains your arrival/departure dates, links to the onboarding website, and links to the DCP facebook/twitter/youtube sites.

It doesn't, not one bit. Just Keep Calm and Carry On! April will be here before you know it.

Gerry gave an excellent example on the last page:

Pending is neither a bad thing nor a good thing. Your chances of getting in are the same as before you got that email. You may have to wait until April to hear back. There are also people who have been pended who have been accepted the following day or a week later, though it's more common to wait much longer than that. Don't be discouraged! It's a long wait but SO worth it.

Ahh thanks guys! I was so worried when I got that e-mail because I associated the pending with a negative, but you guys made me feel better! Guess I'll just play the waiting game now

You'll be fine as long as you remember to sell yourself when answering the questions. Don't just solve the problem the interviewer gives you, explain why the skills you've learned from a previous job/at school lead you to your answer. Oh and smile. Disney loves smilers. Good Luck!!

I think all of the pended emails have the same date (April 19) but hopefully we'll hear some good news before then! I haven't heard yet of anyone who has been pended that has been accepted yet though - I agree it's hard to wait. Last year I got pended a month after the interview and during the final week got NLIC I'm sure you will get accepted!! Think good thoughts

Cool Hello! ^_^

I did this on one other thread, but since this one is for the people for the Fall 2013 CM's / hopefuls, I'll go ahead and make myself known here, too. Hi! My name is Matt, and I applied for the Fall 2013 program at WDW as either a Photopass Photographer or a Character Attendant. First things first, though - I am a sophomore at the Savannah College of Art and Design, majoring in Animation, and I am an Army veteran of 6 years, having served a tour in Iraq.

My phone interview was about 2 Mondays ago, and I'm fairly confident that I did alright :> the lady that interviewed me was really nice, but when I told her that I didn't have any tattoos, she sounded legitimately shocked (something about being a service member, apparently she was getting ready to write a laundry list of tattoos :B). All-in-all, though, it went pretty swimmingly. I still have another week and 1/2 before I'm supposed to hear something back, so I'm just waiting for the time to go by, I guess xD

Anyways... if I do get accepted, I hope to be able to make friends with a few of you guys before I go down to Disney, so as to not feel like a complete stranger :3 also, I started a vlog on YouTube under TheGreatMazzu, so I can highlight my experiences with the program :> so please support that, if you can! If anything else, feel free to message me on here! Looking forward to chatting with you guys!

I had my interview... I don't know what to think. It was only 9 minutes. She seemed pretty happy when I said all I wanted to do after graduating is go back to Disney and I think she was pleased with most of my answers..
but she also asked about my experience outside of my last CP.. which is basically just a paper route. she asked about a challenge and I couldn't think of a thing to say because there weren't any.. I was also taken by surprise when she asked about transportation because I put low interest. Otherwise I was asked about merchandise (I assume, with the repetitive job question), character attendant, photopass, bbb and vacation planner. as well if I put low interest on custodial, which I had last time, because I wanted something new.
I don't know I'm so nervous haha. I know other people had short interviews but is 9 minutes too short??
