- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (Glendale, CA) in November 2013.
I met with a number of key stakeholders in one day at several campuses. The process seemed lengthy and the structure that wove these corporate officers together was unwieldy. It didn't seem like a few of the interviewers knew exactly what they needed from the position of why the position was important, just that they needed help. I found one gentleman to be downright arrogant. He immediately asked me to solve a problem with no background on the "why" or "how" of the situation. It was a sort of "gotcha" moment that was intended to put people on the spot but it made him seem desperate. In the end, DCP seems to have the financial backing of actual goods being sold, as opposed to Disney Interactive. I enjoyed speaking with Margita, however.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (Glendale, CA) in June 2012.
1. Phone Interview: General questions and afterwards asked if I was still interested in the position. 2. In-Person Interview with a Manager: Very friendly, interview lasted almost an hour. Wrote her a thank you email and she responded back. I was never informed that I didn't get the position, or heard from anyone after that. I have been told from people that work there that they tend to hire internally or people who have interned for them before.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (Glendale, CA) in June 2011.
Interviewed for a position with DCP as a financial analyst. Went through 5 challenging interviews and enjoyed meeting the individuals within the organization. Didn't end up getting the position but I enjoyed experience and that I was "runner up" in the decision. I thought I was the right candidate and 90% sure I would receive an offer. DCP attracts the right talent IMO.

I applied in-person. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2010.
Very extensive, tedious interview process. Interviewed with 4 different people on 4 different days, often with only a days' notice. After the 2nd interview, I had already decided that the position wasn't what I wanted, but I continued on for the interview practice. After the whole, drawn-out process, no one had the courtesy to call and say I didn't get the job. Shocking since I was told that it was down to 2 candidates. Not very respectful overall.

The process took 1 day – interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (Glendale, CA) in March 2010.
First, they screen you on the phone. If you pass that process they schedule in person with about 4 to 5 people. Then, they lead you on that you are a finalist and then they almost hire internally.
