    Good luck! Which roles did you pick?

    The wait time varies for everyone. It says on the website it can take up to 4-6 weeks. But I feel on average, it takes around 3 weeks. I really hope it is 3 weeks (or less). I interviewed a week ago, and I'm already going crazy!

    I signed up for Attraction, Character attendant, FSFB, Hopper, entrance, merchandise, photo pass, QSFB, Recreation, and transportation. So pretty much everything. How do they let yo know if you get the part? Is it mail or email or what?

    My roommate and I have this great idea that we are going to find out on the same day if I get hired in and if he got into optometry school then we are probably going to miss the next day of class due to a bit to much celebration.

    You get a BIG letter if you are accepted. You find out which role you got in the letter.

    Hopefully it comes before spring break, that would make break even better (or worse). Thanks for the information.

    Has anybody on here been excepted yet? And in what roles?

    Nobody has been accepted yet for Fall 09 yet, that I know of (it's only been around 10 days or so for the first people who interviewed). Hopefully letters will start arriving next week (I hope so anyway- Sat is my 11-day mark since faxing my info).

    And I hope to get either character attendant, attractions, or photopass (in that order).

    So tomorrow is the big interview day. Should I have the role checklist or anything else in front of me? How long does the interview usually take?

    Yes, have your role checklist and application in front of you. Also have a notepad and pen, so that you can right down any thoughts you have while your interviewer is talking, and then ask them at the end.

    Also, make sure you've picked your "top 3" roles, that'll help speed it up.

    My interview was 20-30 minutes, I forget exactly how long.

    Goodluck!

    I would have your role checklist and application in front of you (the interviewer goes over the information on them).

    The time usually runs around 20-30 minutes. Mine was 20 minutes exactly. Good luck!

    Thanks guys, I will try and check in after I finish tomorrow. I'm kinda getting nervous now and thats weird cause I don't really get nervous about stuff. I think I will probably be this way until I find out for sure what is going to happen.

    It went really well, I talked with the interviewer for about 30 min. All the questions that I was asked were ones that I had already prepared from the questions I found online. The interviewer was very nice and I was able to keep her laughing throughout most of the conversation. She was very impressed by a lot of the answers I gave which made me feel better at the end. I highly recommend looking up some questions before hand.
    I will post as many as I can remember tomorrow. I have to go fix a sump pump at my rental house for the rest of the night. YIPPY!!! not
