Hello all,

I'm brand new and I thank you all for all of this advice and input!

I have my phone interview tomorrow at 9:15 AM and I have read all 14 pages of this topic twice, so again thank you all!!!

I'm a tad bit nervous because it's been a while since being interviewed at all, so this phone call should be interesting. AHH

just had my phone interview yesterday and I was in a sweat for nothing. My roles I picked were BBB hostess, character attendant, and attractions. My interviewer asked alot about my experience in dealing with makeup (I'm a theatre geek and LOVE using any sort of stage makeup) and what not. So nervous about what the results are going to be!!!

hey guys
I just came across this topic and it is great so far! I can't wait to interview. I want to do
1. Attractions
2. Concierge
3. Character Attendant
4. Merchandise

I was wondering if anybody knew of any questions they might ask, specifically about the concierge one? No one has really said anything about that one on this board. And do you know if they ask if you can request which area you would like to work in or do you need to bring it up yourself?

Thanks

A question that they could ask for both concierge and merchandise is if you've ever handled money before. Specifically, if you've ever sold anything and hence collected money from other people, and if you've ever counted back someone's change to them. Another concierge question would be if you've ever made reservations for something. They are general questions around what concierges do and if you've ever done anything along those lines.

Concierge is essentially reserved for hospitality majors. If you're not a hospitality major, regardless of previous hospitality experience there is an enormous chance that they will not cast you as concierge. Non hospitality majors have a higher chance (though still a somewhat low chance) of being cast in the general hospitality role than being cast as concierge.

Now here is an educated guess...they might make an exception if your previous hospitality experience is working as a concierge or front desk agent at another hotel because I would think that if they have proof that you've already done this specific job they may trust you more with it. This is just a hunch.

All of the people who have been cast for CP as concierge that I have spoken to said that they are hospitality majors. All of them have also already done the college program before so if your major is hospitality and you've already done the CP they essentially have all of the concierge spots reserved for you.

You can make a request to work at a specific area either at the end of the phone interview or via e-mail after you've been accepted. You bring it up, they never ask you "oh so where do you want to work?" They can't be that accommodating because they have to put you where you fit and where there is space. When it comes to requests they let you make them but you're not guaranteed to get them. They make sure to remind you that no area you request is guaranteed anytime you make a request. Some people are lucky and get their requests while others aren't.

I think the biggest part of the interview is sounding happy and excited. The trickyest question for me was why do you want to work at disney, which i completely messed up my answer, the interview only lasted 15 minutes. But 3 weeks later i got my folder!

I assure you that you will not need a cheat sheet... the CP interview is the most ridiculously easy interview you will ever have in your entire life...

You will do the interview and then immediately wish you had not wasted your time worrying, because it really is a joke of an interview... its more of a screening to see if you are a weirdo and sociable or not...
