    I got my phone interview schedule for Monday @ 1:15, I was soo nervous through the entire process of the WBI...and it took sooo long to get the emails.

    Last night I stayed up with some people practicing interview questions. If anyone wants to practice with me, feel free to message me!

    I would put yes and put the date you applied for the the internship. They are looking to see if you have applied in the past 6 months, so it sounds like either way you should be okay.

    Okay, thank you very much! :) I would rather explain that the apps were closed if they can't see the proof I applied, than to explain why they see that I have previously applied and didn't list it.

    I do not know about edititng but I know the last time I applied they asked me about my application and as I was going she suggested I changed a few things (housing stuff in DLR application before they changed how it works) So i know it is possible during the interview for them to change your info.

    My computer kind of spazzed when the page after you submit the initial application was loading...could someone kindly tell me what it says?

    I read "Thank you for your interest..." and read "What is the next step?" or something like that, but then it closed the page for some reason. (I got a new tablet with Windows 8, and unfortunately it's been kind of touchy. lol)

    So I think I'm going to put 3 high interest, 5 moderate, 5 low, and 7 no interest. the only one on high or moderate interest that is easy to get I believe is merchandise. I have already done 2 CPs if that counts, I just wonder if that's ok?!? I feel like I shouldn't have 12 for low or no interest haha.

    ok I changed 2 from moderate to high. I over think everything.

    Congrats to everyone that has already passed their WBI's! :cool1:

    I applied late last night (finished the app around 12:45 am), got my "thank you for applying" email almost exactly 1 hour later, and then got my WBI invitation email almost exactly 1 hour after that.

    Took my WBI this afternoon and passed! Phone interview scheduled for 2/20 :banana:

    I have to say I was SO nervous for the WBI, but it was really a piece of cake. So, good luck to anyone who still has to take theirs and good luck to everyone on their phone interviews! :thumbsup2

    :rotfl: I totally did the same thing. I was over-thinking everything. Some of the roles I really had between a moderate to high level of interest, but I obviously ended up having to pick one or the other.

    Son submitted his application around 8PM Central last night, and had his interview scheduled around 1AM. LOL....I got the text at 1:15...sleep is good. His high interest are mainly Entertainment and Attractions...I'm sure some others, but he tends to be elusive with me at times. He has also heard good things about custodial, so it may be up there on the list.

    So to the experienced folks here...if all goes well he is going to Character Auditions in Austin on March 23...does that mean he will be automatically pended until then, or could he be offered a position, then if he got through the audition have it changed? I've heard both, so was wondering.

    Thanks.

    You should get another email offering you to take the Web based interview.

    I had about the same breakdown, no worries.

    He will most likely be offered another role which he can accept, then he attends the character audition and if selected is changed to that role instead. The only time he would be immediately pended is if he said he was only interested in Character Performer.

    Hello everyone! My name is Christine and I am going to a community college in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am a freshman majoring in elementary education and minoring in sociology.

    When I filled out my application I put High interest for almost all of the jobs because I'm willing to do anything they need me to do but my top 3 are hopper, attractions and full service food and beverage.

    Was that a bad idea to put high interest for most of the jobs?

    Ah! Everybody else is hearing back from Disney within a few hours to take the WBI or at least a Thank You email, and I haven't heard anything. Am I worrying too much and are they really just double-checking my rehire status like I think they are, or should I be mildly concerned about things? :confused3 (I triple-checked that I had entered the right email--it's the same one I used 3 years ago.) I've never heard of getting a response after submitting an application for the CP that they'll review the application first and let me know within 5 days. Is this common and am I just freaking out over nothing? (Which I'm honestly hoping is just the case.)

    Either way, good luck to everybody's that has phone interviews scheduled! This is so exciting! :yay:

    Ok glad I'm not the only crazy person! The low/moderate/high interest really bothered me haha.
    I passed the WBI thankfully!!!! because it said I didn't answer the question SEVEN times! I have no idea why but after the 7th time I just let it go for 20 seconds so it would definitely work. I was about to cry.

    Try checking your dashboard, it will tell you if they have received/reviewed it yet. That's how I initially found out. I applied around 3 and got an email around 5:30...don't worry yourself too much! Think happy thoughts!!:thumbsup2

    I didn't even think about the Dashboard! Thanks so much for pointing it out to me! :) I saw that I got the "Thank you..." email that everyone else seems to be mentioning, so I take that as a good sign! And I double-checked and I guess I didn't check my email enough because I missed one letter in my email address, but at least I got to catch it to fix it really quickly.
