    How important is the phone interview?

    does anyone know how important the phone interview is?

    i applied and did the online interviews and had my phone interview all within a week of each other so i was very excited that happened so fast but then i just had my phone interview and i think i messed up big time

    the first question they asked was why i wanted to work at disney and i honestly dont even remember what i said because i was SO nervous. i thought i could feel my voice shaking (although later my roommate who was in the room said i sounded fine...perhaps she is just being nice though) anyways i answered that awfully. then all they asked was things like do i have tattoos/piercings, do i mind living with other people, what is my past work experience, do i have a license, have i ever been criminally charged, what role would i like to be, do i mind working outside, would i like to work alone or with others, basically it just seemed like they were re asking or confirming things from the application (i think i messed up so badly on the first question they just felt bad or something) and then they had me ask then questions and i think i messed that up as well. i asked about transportation, and the learning experience, and family visiting, and i asked if the girl interviewing me had been a college program graduate and i think i asked more but i dont remember.

    i was super nervous at first but then i became more relaxed and more friendly but the beginning part threw me off and i had a really good application and everything

    i dont know. i could just be freaking out, but if anyone with experience in this could help that would be FANTASTIC

    thank you

    Good luck and fingers crossed for you. My son had the sames fears several years ago. You are not alone with being nervous. The interviewers are accustomed to the nerves.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
