One more week!

SO I've made it through week one of waiting please let this next week go by super fast. However I do have a question. I'm signed up for Spring advantage second session but I won't get out of school til May does that mean I'm ineligible? Im just doing an internship spring tri and an online class so i may be allowed to get away with leaving early but i'm worried

My interview lasted 13 minutes.. I didn't know if that was a good sign or a bad one, so I was nervous all week until I heard back from DCP.

At least in my interview, I didn't get asked any tough questions. Mostly about my work experience and how I would handle situations, and also where I preferred to work (inside or outside). Other than that she just asked why I wanted to do the program, and in my opinion, it's better to have a lame reason why that is honest, than saying something about the parks as a whole. I talked about how when I went I was always trading pins with CMs, and I wanted to be able to be on the other end of the stick and make someone as happy as I remember feeling when I got mine. She liked that answer and said it was a good example.

Just be honest in your interview, because if you're not and they think you are, you could be placed somewhere that they think you would be good in based on what you said, which really was a lie, so you could end up really unhappy.

Can we talk for a minute about how Fall 2013 applications open in less than two months?

I'm already so nervous and excited; I've been waiting for this for years and it finally feels so close. This thread has been really helpful in calming my nerves, so thanks everyone for that!

Do you know the exact date they open it up? I know it is vaguely Jan, but has the specific date been announced?

So I just scheduled my phone interview! Feb 24, so I've got a while to prepare and be unnecessarily nervous about it, haha. I've applied twice before for DCP but never got this far before. I'm really excited! Last night I was up really late reading through this thread and writing down practice answers for some of the questions. I'm so so so thankful that others have been willing to share and help with this, because otherwise I don't think I'd be as prepared as I should be. I have the answers in me, I just don't always think of a way to articulate them the way I'd want on the spot.

This is definitely my favourite thread by far! I've found that reading through the questions and answering them as they apply to me make things a bit more focused.

Anna, if the concern is articulating the answers on the spot you could always write a few notes, just not to the point that you would be scripting them. I made my key points relevant on my notes, and that's what I emphasize upon.

If in doubt, you could always just reply "That's a really, good question! I'd like a moment to consider it completely."

You've got it in you! *high five*

I'd also highly recommend checking out Kate's Phone Interview Tips!

Let me know if you need any more advice!

Have a Magical Day!

Oh, I will definitely have some notes to look at. Thanks for all the tips! I don't even think I could write a script if i wanted to, haha. "That's a really good question, could I have a moment to think about it?" I'll start practicing that line right now. :P

I will also be checking out Kate's tips ASAP!

Everyone's so helpful and it's just so lovely. ^__^

I have my interview tomorrow for my second DCP! I am so incredibly nervous because this is my LAST CHANCE to do it again (I am graduating in May). It was the best experience of my life and I hope I get in! Has anyone here applied before and is going for it again?



So excited/nervous/anxious for tomorrow!

I'm in the same exact situation, only I did my CP a year earlier than you. Graduating in April and it's my last chance, so I'm so nervous! I'm so glad this thread is here so I can prepare as much as possible since it has been 3 years since I applied last and I've forgotten some of the questions I was asked. (And I put emphasis on wanting different roles this time around since I ended up meeting people who really enjoyed roles that I thought I didn't want last time, like Character Attendant.)

Good luck on your interview!
