The Phone Interview!!

OK... So the day of my phone interview had to be the most nerve racking day of my life!! :)
I called Disney on March 13th to schedule it, and was really surprised at how soon I could interview!! I ended up picking a time early Sunday afternoon. I believe it was for.. 12:40? When I scheduled my interview, the woman said my interview was named Mauli (pronounced Molly I was told..).. Well, although she was a few minutes late to call me, she was very nice. We joked around a lot, which definitely made the whole process much easier. Honestly, as nerve racking as the whole process was, it had to be the easiest interview I have ever had.

I don't really want to go into specifics about the interview process, because honestly I don't know how much Disney would want me to disclose, and I don't want them to try and shut the blog down, because honestly I feel they would have that power... It might just be because I am a spaz!! haha

Well first, they go through the application, and make sure everything you wrote down is all right, and then they ask about if you would/could comply with the Disney look...

One of the first questions they ask is "Why do you want to do the College Program?" Obviously, telling the interviewer how bad you want to do the CP is encouraged here... :)
They also ask if it is OK to work up to 50 hours a week, and if you are comfortable living in an apartment with 7 other people.

After that, you and your interviewer go over the role checklist. My interviewer asked me to pick a top three. After you pick your top three, the interviewer asks questions based on what you pick. Obviously, based on what you answer, they try and place you accordingly.

And then after that, the interviewer will tell you that you should hear something within four to six weeks, if you don't you should call them, blah blah blah!! :) My interviewer told me to have a MAGICAL DAY - :) - and that was it, my interview was over! It was nice, but also nerve racking to know it was now all out of my hands!

I got a pending letter on March 26th, which was dated March 20th, postmarked the 23rd. Just to warn anybody, every body's wait times are different, some find out they got in after a week (LUCKY!!) and others wait weeks... and weeks... and weeks! I found out 30 days after my interview.

To anyone who will interview for the CP in the future, I wish you the best of luck!! I am certainly excited for what the future holds for me and the opportunities this will open up to me in the future!

Thank for reading... and HAVE A MAGICAL DAY!! :) I had to do it!!
