Well I've had experience as a ride operator for two coasters at my local Six Flags park, so that probably helped a bit. I emphasized my love for spieling and such, which was my favorite part of operating, along with the fact that many guests at the park enjoyed it as well.

I was actually a bit surprised that I landed the role as my main was Attractions, but looking back I did emphasize spieling quite a bit which is prevalent in Transportation (I have no experience with a radio, but the mic at Six Flags isn't much different).

Looks like it's a pending party! I just interviewed yesterday, and got that email tonight. I said my top three were merchandise, attractions, and custodial. It took me almost the whole two weeks before my interview to decide those, lol.

Congrats!! Everyone I talked to loved custodial so I think you'll have a great time. And it's great to see someone else from NJ get fall adv. For a while I thought I was the only one!

I hope we all get good news in the end! Maybe our party will make the wait more bearable

I started upbeat (saying I was fantastic, and asking her how she was which she responded with something like fine or good), I think i stopped smiling as much towards the middle cause I was so nervous and focusing on my answer but finished smiling. It lasted 19mins, 51 secs (checked my cell phone timer), so Im not really sure what I did wrong or w.e, I thought I had good answers and all.
I got accepted as quick service food and beverage

Does anybody know what time-frame acceptances usually get sent out?

I interviewed yesterday morning and had Kim. She was super nice, and like others have said, she didn't give me much feedback. (I guess that's a thing this semester?) It lasted 25 minutes, which I hope is good! A LOT of my questions were pertaining to my last CP (or maybe I just brought it up a lot?) so I kind of expected that. Had one or two that I wasn't planning for, but I think it went pretty well! The only thing I regret not mentioning was my experience as being a trainer on my last CP, but hopefully that'll be okay. We also spent a good amount of time talking about my current job, which is working as a ticket seller/greeter/Guest Relations person/turnstile person at a local Aquarium, and I did select MEO as my number one choice, so I guess we'll see!

Now it's time to wait! I feel like I check my dash every 5 minutes but I know it won't change that much.
