      Welcome to MiceChat!

      Don't worry, the phone interview really isn't too bad. The recruiters are very nice. They ask a variety of questions ranging from personal questions (like why do you want to do the CP?) to questions about the roles you picked. The interviews usually run around 20-30 minutes long. Good luck! Hopefully I will see you in FL (I applied for Fall 09 too).

      OT- which roles did you select?

        One thing to make sure of... don't go all Disney-geekoid during the interview. They want Disney fans to be part of the college program, but not people that my be a little too much for them. Let them know of your love of Disney, but don't go over the top. I'm sure you'll be fine. Be sure to let us know how it goes.

            Well, I am 23. I am due to graduate this summer, so I am hoping to go FT after this CP. I am hoping for character attendant, but I also picked attractions and photopass. I want to get Chatham, a 3 bedroom apartment, again (this would be my 5th CP).

                      Um, wrong. I am not brainwashed. I've been in entertainment for almost 3 years now, and there is nowhere else I would rather be. What did the department ever do to you?

                        Oh... what hasn't that department done to me... and every other department that isn't Entertainment. I'm not going to stereotype here, but 9 out of 10 Entertainment people that I have met have major chips on their shoulders. Maybe I'm just meeting the wrong ones, who knows. There is one MK Attendant that I get along with pretty well and I get along with most Furs but most Attendants, Face Characters and Parade Performers generally have this "better than you" attitude. Again, perhaps I'm meeting the wrong ones, but then again, maybe not.

                              Maybe some people act that way, but not all of them. And I definitely don't!! I don't feel that I am better then anybody else. And for the record, I have also worked in other areas, so I have friends in different roles.

                              Good choices!

                              Although, custodial wasn't that bad (for me anyway). It was really laid back at Epcot, where I worked.
