    this is for all those of us tht just went through 7 weeks of hell to find there were no visas! i think would be a shame after that long of us talking on 'anxiously waiting' united in our anguish to now not know what others are doing - so post away

    - what the ppl of anxiously waiting did next - (dont forget pen pen)

    Hey Kim,
    I going to the Toronto Interviews, and I was a bit worried too, so I e-mailed Eric, and I have yet to hear back from him (understandable, since he is obviously away from his comp for the week). Maybe bring that question along with you at the interview? that's my plan...my thoughts are that if they know that there are no visa's then they would probably not be interviewing (or maybe they would, who knows?) and the program that it affects, as far as I know, is not even offered in Canada...so we are all fair game for open positions! GOOD luck in Halifax! let us all know how it goes!

    Well Hannah, gd idea lol.

    I had an Email from Jason today as I had said I was interested in the Cult Rep Program. He did say however that they would be 'inviting me for an interview'. I don't think I will be going, I think it's ridiculous we have to go for another interview - we were good enough to get the job but we need to be interviewed again? (Sorry I'm in a slightly bad mood today, back to work after long weekend off lol) I spent over £300 to get to the last interview and there wasn't even a job there? Unbelievable.

    I would like to say a huge thanks to all u guys that have been posting on here. It really did help to hear that other ppl were going through the same. I'm just so sad that this had to happen, we were all so excited!

    Anyways, no doubt I will be on here just as much, I'm officially addicted lol, whether I'm going to Disney or not!!

    I think the reason why they need ro interview you again is because they ask you different kinda questions. Like at the cultural rep interviews they ask you things like 'how would you describe your country?. 'if someone asked you about your town, what would you say?'. Its for representing your country as well as working for disney. It might also be a rule of the Q1 visa.

    Info from this site http://www.us-immigration-attorney.com/culturalexchange.htm tells you about the visa a bit more.

    (a) The cultural component of the program is designed to give an overview of the attitude, customs, history, heritage, philosophy, tradition and/or other cultural attributes of the participant's home country, and;

    (b) The program activities take place in a public setting where the sharing of culture can be achieved through direct interaction with the American public or a segment thereof.

    I think the cultural rep program was the only one you needed an interview for again..

    I don't think you needed one again for the others...

    Might be because as well that there is most likely alot less places on that program..

    Same here, yet another waiting game. I'm still in shock about the whole thing. I understand about having to ask different questions in the interviews for cultural reps, but I'm still with Claire, I spent an absolute fortune going for an interview in Feb, and it feels as if it's all just been forgotten about. I'm sure it'll all be worth it in the end.

    U are so right Charlotte!! I feel like we were just so let down!!

    I won't be goin to the interviews, I'm not risking all that money again!! I wouldn't have minded if they said I didn't get the job due to whatever reason. I'm just annoyed at spending all that money when there wasn't even a job there! If I'd known that, I wouldn't have went!

    I know, it's like the last 9 months of applying/tel interview/f2f interview didn't happen. And the fact that it doesn't count for ANYTHING makes it even worse. I asked Michele about compensation for the costs of the interview in Feb but she's just ignored my email so that says a lot really. It's such a waste of everybody's time; I hope they've learned from this and will make sure they have the visas sorted before interviewing applicants.

    Maybe you should try emailing her again about the compensation...
    Maybe she did ignore you, but it's also possible she never even received your email. The past 2 weeks some of my emails never made it into their inbox, my placement coordinator emailed yummy and his email never made it to Yummy Jobs, and I'm sure I read a post somewhere else from someone who's email never made it to Yummy Jobs.
    So yeah, like I said, maybe she just ignored your email, but I'd say it's worth trying again.

    I think we should def do it! Better if there are a few of us aswell. Seriously tho, how can they get away with that? A job interview for a non existant job? No way would I have wasted my money on that if I'd known!!

    I know, none of us would. We were never told that there was a chance their visa application could fall through, not in an email or during the interview itself. If we'd thought there might be no visas we might have waited and spent out money on a different program that actually exists. Who do we email, Jason or Michele?
