    Relax. It's not an inquisition.

    Read everything carefully and fill things out accurately. Ask if you don't understand.

    When taking the psychological (online) test, don't try and create an image or impress. They only look at the overall scores, not the individual questions. Don't be extreme in either direction, these tests also measure validity in that they look for cases where people are trying to fake it for a purpose.

    Same thing for the personal interview (actually done in small group usually). Think about the questions asked and don't try and show off. They're looking for steady, reliable people.

    You may not get offered what you want job or park-wise. Decide beforehand what your preferences and limits are and be prepared to say no if you're not going to be satisfied with the offerings. Note that refusing may prevent you from reapplying for a period of time.

          Not sure how much that applies.

          Definitely so when filling out the application.

          But with the psych test there's limited time per question - plenty but not long or indefinite - and there are no right or wrong answers as such, they look for inclinations and attitudes.

            I was giving a slight tease there, the title of the thread had Disneyland spelled wrong... it seems like one of those ironic kinda mistakes.

                          My advice comes from the first time I applied (and got rejected) -

                          pay attention to the other people in the group interview. They are looking to see if you genuinely listen to others VS. if you're sitting there thinking up your next answer in your head and tuning the others out. Armed with this info, I nailed it the 2nd time. You'll do fine!

                          OH! And DON'T WEAR JEANS! WAY too many people wear inappropriate clothing to job applications/interviews and - straight from the tour guide handbook - "your appearance is 85% of your first impression." You can make or break yourself by fitting or not fitting the "Disney Look" at the interview.

                          Good luck! We'll see ya real soon!
