    I got NLIC'd a few hours ago, 9 weeks after my phone interview.

    My dashboard says "No Longer in Consideration" but I didn't get an email and the last notification notice on my dashboard is that I'm still pending........

    DS has been pending since March 1. Just got NLIC. If he hadn't been strung along so long he wouldn't have been as devastated.

    My Daughter got her Arrival date as May 20th and the email to complete the preboard documents which are all done.

    Now the Dashboard has a link in the communications titled WDWCP Food Service QSR H/H which says: The job posting you are looking for has expired or the position has already been filled. If you are interested in one of our other opportunities, please visit our career site.

    Is this normal after you are locked in or should she call and checkup on this?

    So I heard some people are being switched to arrive Sept 9. If I asked them to switch from my date to that would I be able to?

    That's normal.
    I believe that means they've already placed her somewhere.

    One of my roommates got her date changed :(

    I know if Disney goes and changes my date I'd get right on the phone and complain. My family's vacation is scheduled around my arrival date!(spend 5 days in Florida with family and last day is my check in day) and we already got our hotels booked! Plane tickets are also non refundable!!

    Congratulations to all of those that accepted!

    There's the error with the system that it doesn't send an email out, especially with the close of applications. Don't give up! :)

    The reason why the posting has "expired" as you are seeing is because applications for the College Program close, and the posting is removed from the database. So in the meantime the dashboard system is requesting the position listings that have been applied for, and it's essentially being rejected.

    All in all, nothing to worry about as she's still in the same status. It's perfectly normal as applications closed.

    Have a Magical Day! :smickey:

    Thanks for the reassurance - with reservations booked at Disney and a nonrefundable Airline ticket for Mom meeting us there we were a little concerned.:confused3

    Daughter got the DORMS access email and completed all of that. Have the Housing Boarding Pass and the other 3 support documents all printed for check-in.

    Is there any more steps after this before we show up on the 20th so we know what to expect next?

    Sorry to ask a stupid question but does anyone do internships in the Imagineering or computer science departments at WDW? Or are they all more parks (merchandise, custodial) oriented? DS is going to Georgia Tech next year and has been to WDW at least 20 times. He has talked to many interns about the program but only those meeting the guests. He did meet a great girl from Cornell flipping burgers at Beaches and Cream who was very helpful and actually really enjoyed working there.

    At the freshman/sophomore level, you're mostly limited to the College program which is the merch/custodial/attractions roles that you mentioned. However, at the junior/senior/graduate levels the Professional Internships start to become available to him like IT positions, engineering positions, finance, marketing, managerial etc... Most of the professional internships require the student to be at least junior level before applying.

    Great! Thank you for the information. Makes sense. And what is the WBI everyone seems to mention? Some type of phone interview?

    Its short for Web Based Interview. Its actually the screening interview that needs to be completed prior to the phone interview. I don't actually remember much of what was asked, so if anyone else wants to fill in there, feel free.

    One of my friends is saying he got a form in his email about consenting to a drug test and he has to hand it in when he checks in on Monday. Anyone know what kind of test it is? Like, is it a pee test or a hair test or a blood test?

    I'm pretty sure that's normal. I was accepted at the beginning of March and I've only gotten the same emails as you. I believe you start to get more emails as you get closer to your arrival date.

    Ok. I need the personnel number and the pernr number and leader name.
    Where do i find this info.
    I have what I believe is the pernr # but not the rest.
    My daughter is at wdw started last week but they need her doctors medical accomodation forms turned in and she has no idea what her personnel number is or her leader name. She has only trained 2 days, and now is off for 2 days.
    Any suggestions?
