My DCP Journey: You've Been Pended


On March 4th, I received the email that I had been dreading all along: You've been pended. I was a little bit relieved, but scared at the same time. What if I didn't get it? What if I did get it, but got a role I didn't really want? But what if I didn't get it? When I hopped onto the Disney Facebook page, I saw that a wave of pending had gone out, and a ton of people had been pended. 

Someone had emailed recruitment asking about what was going on, and basically what they said was that they had so many people applying, they had to pend people because they didn't want to make a rash decision. This kind of comforted me, but at the same time it didn't. Basically the only reason that they pended people was because they were nearing the 3 week deadline, and they had to do something. 

While I didn't want them to make a rash decision, I really wanted to just know. I've heard horror stories of people being pended up until the final date and then being NLICd (no longer in consideration). I didn't want to be one of those people, I wanted to know damnit! In my mind, I just blew it off and tried to concentrate on my homework and studies...though that didn't really work. 

I ended up checking the Facebook page obsessively, and seeing different waves of people getting their acceptances. Lifeguards, Merchandise, Quick Service, Full Service, Vacation Planners, and Main Operations were some of the first people to get their acceptances. I can't say that I was too jealous, because those roles weren't the roles that I wanted. But at the same time, I was jealous of people already knowing. But then, I just waited some more...
