I bet it's the "strongly agree" issue.

Maybe coach her to understand that this isn't like being on a jury where you have to be able to see it from all sides. Disney just wants someone who knows stealing is wrong (for example.) Not only because they want a CM who would be watching for theft by the guests, but also --and maybe more importantly-- a CM who would never consider stealing from Disney.

When answering those sorts of questions, they want the applicant to be on their highest moral horse, so to speak. No gray areas.

I'm so sorry she didn't make it this round. There's always next time, right?

Thanks for posting this, Teresa. The same thing just happened to my DD. She had no idea what she answered that she knew would be wrong. My DD is very shy, and she knows that, and said she tried to answer questions in a way that non-shy people would answer.

I'm sorry your DD didn't get in. It's tough when you can't pinpoint it. I do know that most of those on-line question things ask the same question in many different forms, so if you're trying to pretend to be someone you're not (outgoing when you're shy), the program will pick up on it.
DD Kathryn called the number they're given to ask questions, and she got an answer: "We don't know, we don't see those. Better luck next time."

So frustrating.

They can reapply essentially every 6 months - apply in the spring for fall semester, in the fall for spring semester.

She did tell me she is on a FB page for applicants, etc. and some people there offered some light to the issue: The questions on the on-line application are opinion questions. The answers are pre-chosen and are something like "Strongly Agree, Agree, Neutral, Disagree, Strongly Disagree." Well, Kathryn doesn't like to 'hurt' other people's feelings, and always feels there are exceptions to everything. So, nothing is a strongly agree or a strongly disagree. ie: If the question were: Stealing is wrong and should be punished, Kathryn would answer "Agree". She would not "Strongly Agree" because, what if the person caught stealing were stealing food for his/her children? What if it was a person stealing clothes so they could go on a job interview and then be able to pay for their clothes?
Evidently, there is a number she can call and find out more. She plans to do that later in the week (the times the 'office' is open are not convenient to her).
I think the two positions she left out are reasonable (and may not be compatible with her personality) and leaves her many roles open and this may be important. I feel Disney Culture is very strict about what is legal and right so you may be on the right track there about those questions. However, as I filled out the web interview and answered questions like 'the most important thing to me is keeping my workspace clean' I didn't strongly agree, because to me people are most important, if little Jonny skinned his knee and wanted to sit on the counter to get a band-aid, I don't think I would make him sit on the concrete and cry in order to keep my workspace clean, if being up on the counter (Safely) while being held he could see the Mickey Statue and it would make him happy. But after I answered the question this way, I wonder if it sends you into different tracks or different roles. For example, in my role, I really didn't have a 'workspace' to keep clean as if I had been in merchandising or food service, I was working only with people. That worked well for me.
My advice would be to be sure to take notes about which roles you selected (which I did) or why you answered questions certain ways (which I did after I had completed the entire online interview) because I was asked some things during the telephone interview. Has she never gotten to the telephone interview?
Please keep us posted.

Sorry it didn't work out for your dd. I don't know her personally but from what I know of her from on here she sounds like a perfect candidate. I hope she finds out more info and is accepted next time.
