Question with 1 note

Anonymous said: Hey I just applied for DCP spring semester on the morning of the 22nd. I was wondering (on average?) how long will it take for them to review my application and advance me to a WBI and/or phone interview? Love this blog, very helpful! Thank you!

Things have changed from when we applied to now. We got the WBI right away and the phone interview right after that. Now there might be a waiting period in between these three things. I would give it about a week or two.

If anyone knows specifically how this is happening, please let us know! I might just have to go apply ;)

Anonymous said: Do they ask questions about school? I transferred to another city college and so I put down two colleges and I feel like it would be weird if they asked me about it right? Idk I feel like a question like that would throw me off, ya know?

They never asked me anything about the schools I attended but I just wouldn’t rule anything out. You want to be prepared for the question even though I don’t think it will happen.

Anonymous said: If I did the WBI and didn't get a Next Step Phone Interview right after... but the message right after told me "Thank you for applying" along with "check out our website for interview advice" blah blah blah and now it says I'm pending on my dashboard. Does that mean they don't know if they want me or not? ):

You should have gotten a next step phone interview. Since you are pending, I would just check up on that. Maybe they will send you the phone interview later but from what I know, you should have gotten that right after your WBI. Why not apply for the program in California (if you applied for WDW) or vice versa?

If anyone knows anything about a waiting period in between the WBI and the phone interview set up, please let us know :)

Anonymous said: Hi! I applied yesterday and i got a web based interview a couple hours after and right after it said it would let me know in 24 hours if i got in! But on the actual website portal it says that im in progress, but the e-mail says I'm pending so I'm confused as to what my status is... HELP!

Go by what your dashboard says. Emails can come early or come late but your dashboard will always say your right status.

Anonymous said: So I just started an easy store and have sold two items so far, is this something I should talk about in my phone interview when discussing job experience I have or maybe somewhere else or not at all? Thanks :)

I’m not too sure if they’ll look at you having your etsy store as job experience. Maybe you can mention it as a hobby if a question asking for hobbies comes up.

Anonymous said: This might sound silly, but I'm super afraid if I get accepted I'll have to work attractions on a ride I would never go on in a million years, and then I won't really personally know about it. I know for sure I'd have a serious anxiety attack on rides like Tower of Terror or the more intense roller coasters. I've heard of people asking to work certain rides during the phone interview, but can I ask to NOT be placed at a certain ride?

I’m sure you can request not to be placed at certain attractions if it may give you an anxiety attack.

Anonymous said: Hi lovelies! First off, thank you for taking the time to run this blog; it's so useful! My question is: I'm applying for my 2nd CP, and I'm really interested in the Recreation role, especially Children's Activities. Do y'all know any blog that can give me some sample phone interview questions, or tell me more about the role? Thanks <3

So sorry, anon, we don’t. Hopefully a follower here has done the recreation role and can give some information and insight about it.

Help out if you can =)

I believe that the people in navy Anon was asking about are known as PAC (parade audience control.) :)

Thanks! If that’s a role choice, then that’s the one you would rate. If it’s not there under all of the Roles then that means it’s under another Role and, sorry, I do not know what Role that would be.
