    So is anyone doing the new Summer first-time CP? I signed up for that one since it was all my schedule could handle.

    Anyway, just had my interview on Monday.

    I have to go in a week and a half. I am really nervous. Besides trying to stay relaxed and being yourself, is there anything I should know? Are there any really tough questions that I should know about beforehand?

    Man!!! Its been a week since i sent in my application...Please just send a letter telling me yes or no, I just cant wait anymore...:)

    I have worked my self in a frenzy to go now, I am standing at the door waiting for the mail man for the past 3-4 days....

    But I do have a quick question...

    I marked Lifeguard/operations/hopper/recreation and quick food bev, do you think this helps or hurts i didnt mark more? Looking back , i wish i had marked merchandise just to make sure i covered most of the bases to just make sure i am accepted anywhere.

    It's been exactly 2 weeks and 2 days from my interview and I have received my acceptance packet! I am going for the summer program and I'm going to be doing the custodial role! The only thing I'm nervous about is cleaning bathrooms.... but I'm excited about all the "guest interaction" they say you get. Hopefully I'll be in one of the 4 major parks. I'm so pumped! Anyone else going for the summer?? :sunny:

    Hi Janet,
    I hope to be there in the summer too! Just about a week until I should hear. I requested QSFB but we will see where Casting thinks I belong I guess!

    I had my interview on the 4th, and I'm still waiting to hear. I hate this waiting game!! lol So much depends on this decision: my schedule for next semester...housing for next semester...if I'll be in marching band...and on top of all that- my school goes on easter break next Thursday. So I won't get mail after Wednesday, until Monday!! That's going to be awful!

    Just a quick question though: those of you who did the e-presentation- did you get an e-mail confermation that they had received your application? I got an e-mail thanking me for interviewing, but I never heard anything about my application.

    I received nothing acknowledging the receipt of my application materials... I mailed them off this past Tuesday, so it is feasable that they have not yet gotten them... I just figure that they don't send a notice.

    I am applying for the 1st Time Summer CP this coming week through the e-presentation. Is anyone else doing the 3-month? And what kinds of questions are asked during the phone interview? Thanks for the help.

    I am doing the 3 month! I haven't looked at the date window thingies yet. I didn't do the e-presentation but the phone interview was not bad. They asked me why I wanted to work there, what I had to offer, what my best Disney experience was, general questions like that...also what qualities I would look for in an applicant if I was the recruiter, and then I had to discuss whether or not I had these qualities myself. Before the interview I wrote a few keywords and stuff down about why I wanted to work there and what I had to offer...just to make sure I had my thoughts arranged before they called. I think it helped a lot. Good luck!!! Let us know how it goes :)

    My presentation is on the 20th, I am wondering if I have to sign up to go to the presentation or if I can just show up. Thanks for your help.

    Hi... I'm new here... and i have a lot of questions about the cp... and they weren't really answered at the website or in the e-mail they sent me back...

    so I was just wondering if someone would be willing to possibly answer some, but like not on the board,... id on't wanna appear stupid

    btw... i'm still in high school, so i'm not really close to actually being able to apply

    thank you

    Adya

    :) Anyone who has done the CP know if you can request which apartment complex you want to be in, as well as room type?

    At check-in you can request what complex and the number of rooms, 1-2 and 3-4.

    Okay...I'm only 14, but I'm really interested in the CP...but I have a couple questions
    1. What is the difference between the regular program and the advantage program?
    2. Do you have to take any classes while you are in Florida?
    3. Do CMs get into the theme parks for free when they aren't working?
    4. Do you miss the holidays while you are down there? (Christmas, Thanksgiving?)
