Question

Anonymous said: If you start working at DCP (I had my interview and I'm going crazy waiting though I know I have to) and you have a pin trading collection prior to starting work, are you allowed to trade your own pins?

I think on your own time you can go pin trading. While you are Onstage, it’s better to use their pins because Guests can take them away unless you have your pins in your pocket and trade them out for the ones you want.

They go through the apartment and make sure everything is clean and there are no further damages to the furniture, walls, and appliances. I don’t remember what the reprimands were for failing an inspection but I do remember we got a note saying to needed to vacuum. That was it.

Our store ended up closing (we knew before we went to Disney World that it was going to) while we were doing the Program. Had it stayed opened, all we had to do was transfer back to Disney Store because our manager would have kept our positions for us.

I don't know if you answered this or not, but i am not going to dorm at WDW CP if that helps, cause i dorm at my college already, What would happen with my classes here and over at the WDW CP?

From my understanding, unless you have special circumstances, you are supposed to stay in Disney Housing during your Program. You will have to talk to the DCP again about your class schedule and see if they would be able to accommodate you and to see if you would not have to stay in Disney Housing.

Question with 1 note

Anonymous said: Is it true that you have to pay, even though, when I went to the website, it said that we didn't?

I know you have to pay fees to do the Program. Back in 2009, it was around $300 for Disney World and over $800 for Disneyland. I don’t know if they have gone up though.

Question

Anonymous said: Can a rejected DCP applicant apply again to the program? I've notice on the DCP Facebook page they keep advertising that if you are interested in housekeeping, apply to the DCP. Dose this mean they are only accepting people who are qualified for housekeeping?

Once rejected, you have to wait at least 6 months before reapplying again, which would be for the next Program.

No, it means they need more people to choose the Housekeeping Role. Not a lot of people want to do Housekeeping and Disney needs spots filled.

Anonymous said: Hi. My interview process went pretty quick, no issues at all. But now it's been 3 weeks since my phone interview, and when I check my dashboard it says "In Progress" but the date next to it is 20-Aug-2014, and my phone interview was August 26, 2014. Do you know why my dashboard is like that? Or what it could mean?

They’re are still deciding whether to accept you or not. All you can do is wait. Good luck!

Question

Anonymous said: I have a really weird question. If while your at DCP and there is a family emergency back where you live, are you permitted to leave on such short notice, so you can go home for a few days (no more than 5) to be with your family? Or will you have to take your things with you? Thanks!

It depends. This is a question you’ll have to ask your managers. If they can work with you, you don’t have to take all your things with you. However, if they can’t work with you, you’re only option would probably have to be to self-terminate and leave the DCP. However, I have not heard of the latter ever happening.
