Students will click the apply button and fill out the application, much like a regular job. First you will have to create a login which will end up being your dashboard. This is where Disney will communicate with you on your progress (they also send emails). For the application they ask for your general personal information, which park you are applying for, job/volunteer experience (up to 4), and what roles you are interested in. The application is very easy and takes about 20 minutes. At some point in the application, a page will come up where students can mark either no, low, moderate, or high interest in the specific roles. For my application, I marked low for Main Gate Operations, full service food and beverage, moderate for merchandise, and high for photopass and attractions.
Within a few hours applicants will receive a thank-you for applying email and an email inviting them to take the web-based interview. This email will include a link to begin the interview. I submitted my application at 1PM and by 4PM had received both my emails. I got home at 6PM and sat down to do my web-based interview. This typically lasts about 20 minutes, depending on how fast you move through it. It’s important to find a quiet place where you can concentrate. The web interview is not too bad it’s very similar to personality quizzes. You answer questions on how much you relate to specific statements based on a numbers scale and then you move onto questions that make you answer with strongly agree/disagree, agree/disagree, and neutral.
This is where many people get tripped up. You can be denied after the web-based interview. So deep breath, stay focused, and you’ll do fine! I will be honest and say that I was most nervous about this, but it really was not a big deal at all. Don’t let it go to your head! I asked a few of my DCP hopeful friends to share their advice on the process so far!
