    Congrats to your son!

    If either you or your son is on Facebook there is a group that someone just started for those accepted to custodial for Fall 2013.

    Search this on Facebook:
    Disney College Program Custodial Fall/Fall Advantage 2013

    Hopefully there will be people in that group that can help answers his questions :thumbsup2

    I sadly can't help jobro, but if you don't mind me asking, was that one of his top choices? For what its worth, I've heard its not as bad as people make it out to be.

    touchthesky...it wasn't one of his top choices, however he did indicate interest on his ap, and during his interview. He does have a CM "Job Scout" and he said it is also a great role for networking...have also heard other good things about the role as well. :)

    I had custodial. It was actually great because you have TONS of freedom. It's not hard to deal with trash and most of the time you get to walk around and sweep. and restrooms are easy too especially for guys hah. I wasn't excited for it either but then I ended up staying for a second program.

    In my interview they brought up BBB which I put high interest on but not as a top 2 (which I regret) I'm a bit upset I forgot to mention that I danced so I have lots of experience with make up but I said I had experience with kids and always did my niece's hair. I sort of want this more than my top choice now haha so I hope I have a chance.
    It was weird that they asked me only one question about 6 roles. I also hope 9 minutes wasn't too short if no one saw what I said before haha.

    Does anyone know how many are accepted for each role mostly for the Disneyland CP? I see on the Facebook page that several have been accepted for roles such as attractions, photo pass, and retail but only one each so far for hospitality roles (Disney Desk, Front Desk or Guest Services). My top 2 roles were Disney Desk and Guest Services and so far I've only seen one person who was accepted for Disney Desk.

    Hey everyone! My name is Kevin. I am graduating this year from the University of Virginia, and this will be my first CP! I had my phone interview on the 19th and found out today (technically yesterday) that I got accepted for main entrance operations!!!

    If anyone has previous experience in this role, I would love to hear about it!

    Good luck to everyone that is still waiting!!

    So I had my interview about a little over 5 hours ago and I think it went pretty well. Interviewer was very nice and it lasted a little over 20 minutes. I just feel like because I was nervous I talked a bit too fast, hopefully that doesn't ruin my chances of getting in though : /.

    Congrats! It's so good to see acceptances going out so quickly after interviews (I've been pended since Feb 16th). I moved to So Cal from Virginia a few months ago and love it here! You are going to WDW, correct? Hope you have an awesome time :)

    Don't worry too much about it. I was really nervous and stumbled over my words at times during my interview, but I was still accepted. I also got a question that I had no idea how to answer, and could not think of a good answer either. :confused3

    Good Luck!

    Thanks! Yes, I am doing the program at WDW. I'm glad that you are liking it in So Cal. What part of Virginia did you live in before you moved?

    Also, good luck to you! I know having to wait must be really difficult. I hope you get accepted soon!

    had my interview today, and it lasted about 20 minutes. I think I did okay but I was still so nervous. I know if I hadn't had questions to practice beforehand I'd have been lost, though, and I'm so thankful that I had those. Of course I have stuff I wish I'd have said, but it's all up to them now. Hopefully I get to hear back as quickly as some others.

    Hi everyone! I had my phone interview on Friday and am so anxious to find out if I am accepted. I think my interview went well, had a good answer (I thought) for each question but the person didn't give any emotional clues (changes in voice or anything) to re-assure myself. Anyways I realized after I hung up that I forgot to mention that I applied for 2 professional internships, so I'm hoping if I'm accepted I get a chance to ask them how it works if I also get accepted by a PI. Anyways, *crosses fingers* I hope I get accepted at least by the CP :)

    I lived in Fredericksburg (which is about 45 mins north of Richmond). I hope to hear something soon - the waiting is the hardest part! I haven't heard of any acceptances so far this week so curious to see how the week ends!

    Hey everyone! I interviewed on February 20th and just received a pending email today around 12:00. Have you heard of anyone getting accepted that has had the pending status?

    I just wanted to congratulate all of the people that have already gotten accepted, and to wish luck for all of those that are still waiting!

    Thank you!

    Hey everyone, I literally just signed up for the forum moments ago, but it's because I just got accepted to the DCP for this fall! I had my interview this past Thursday (Feb 21st) so I was a bit surprised that I already heard back, but I'll be in Transportation at WDW.
