I'm getting rather anxious, so I thought I might ask a few of you guys for your insight. I'm moving down to the Orange County area this fall as a transfer student to the University of California, Irvine. I would love to work part-time at the Disneyland Resort while down there, and have been watching disneyland.jobs like a hawk over the summer. I was ecstatic when they finally put up a listing for a Quick-Service Food & Beverage opening, as I figured I would be a good candidate, since I did a QSFB role for my Spring 2013 WDW College Program with no points on my record, and I have worked a few fast food jobs. Needless to say, it's been a month since I submitted my application and I've yet to receive any correspondence. My hope dwindles every day that I am still considered as I hear about people on Twitter/Tumblr/forums who have interviewed/accepted job offers for this role.
A few notes about my application: my availability is somewhat restricted; I go to school Monday to Thursday in the morning, but apart from that i'm free. I know your availability plays a big role (which goes for all jobs), but then again I know a few people with a similar schedule and got hired recently. I also think the date I put I could start was a deterrent. I put 9/21 as the first day I could start since I move down to Irvine on the 20th. Keep in mind that I submitted my application on the 31st of July, which meant I couldn't work for another two months. Do they only interview applicants who ready to start in the very near future?
Anyway, what do you guys think? I hope I don't come off as complaining, it's just I've had this plan for awhile and want to work for the Mouse again. Also, does the fact that I've worked for the company in the last few months relevant? Like, does a certain amount of time have to pass before I can work for Disney again?
edit: Perhaps I'm just a little paranoid now, but I just checked my missed calls and I received a call from Anaheim area code 714 on August 1st, one day after I submitted my application. At first I thought nothing of it since I assumed they would e-mail me not call but now, I just don't know.
edit 2: I had my interview two days ago and was offered an Attractions position! Thank you everyone for your help!
