    Retail Sales Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Anaheim, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Anaheim, CA).

    Interview

    I filled out the online application, then got an email back a day or so later asking me to complete an online interview questionnaire, which upon completion, immediately qualified me to continue with Disney's interviewing process by selecting a date and time for a formal "in person" interview at the Casting center. I made my interview date later for early the next week and went in and had a wonderful experience interviewing with my recruiter. I felt very comfortable talking candidly with him and I felt great about how it went. I got the feedback from him about where he felt I would be a good fit, and what my options were. I agreed to do a second interview for another position in a different department requiring one, and did that a few days later and did fine. I was advised a couple of weeks later, that I did not get that particular position, but that I had done very well in the interview itself. After email contact from my recruiter, I was told I was being placed on a waitlist for a Retail/Merchandising position when one opened up, and was told they open up fairly regularly. I was told to watch my email carefully on a daily basis for an offer, and that I had a short period of time to respond to it, and then could proceed with the hiring process. I feel confident that I will eventually be hired and look forward to working for Disneyland! I am still looking for other employment in the meantime, but unless I am offered something else with much better pay, hours and benefits, and that also interests me a great deal, I am still planning on just waiting for my chance to work for the happiest place on earth!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Lake Buena Vista, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. As soon as I arrived, I checked-in with the front desk at the Casting Center and waited until my recruiter came out. We greeted each other and as we were walking back to his office, he asked me why I wanted to be a monorail attendant.

    Pricing Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Orlando, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a phone screen with a recruiter about 2 weeks after applying. I was rather unimpressed with the recruiter and the questions that were asked, but it seems she was impressed with me as I was contacted about a week later for a video interview. This interview was about 30 minutes with 2 managers in Pricing. It was a lot of the basic questions you expect from an interview and I was asked 1 situational question. It took about 30 minutes total. About another week later I was contacted for an onsite interview. I was asked to be there from 9am - 4:30pm. It was a full day of interviews with various departments, as they all work together. There was also a brief case study, that was pretty simple if you know anything about the role you apply for and the company. Everyone there was nice to speak with and seemed happy working for Disney.

    Stage Technician Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in June 2015.

    Interview

    I received an email asking me to schedule an interview nearly 4 weeks after I applied. I opted for a phone interview and it lasted for roughly 20 minutes or so. It was pretty straight forward. The interviewer wasted little time getting to the questions and made no small talk. The questions were easy. I failed by not fitting the "Disney Look". Disney has a very traditional standard when it comes to physical appearance and dress code. I have the 3 things men cannot have: long hair, piercings (my ears), and visible tattoos (hardly). I understand that Disney wants to maintain a clean, conservative image, but this is the entertainment industry for crying out loud! It'd be one thing if I were a cast member or someone whose job deals directly with the public, but I'd be an A/V tech working behind the scenes. One of the reasons I enjoy the entertainment industry is because there is typically a lack of judgement for having a non-traditional appearance. Needless to say, I was pretty upset that my chance at getting an awesome job was thwarted because of a VERY conservative dress code.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a little bit about yourself? Why do you want to work for Disney? What's your career goal/ what do you want to get out of this? If you're running audio from FOH and you hear a buzz coming from the stage: How would you determine the source of the problem? If you had to mic up a standard rock drum kit, what mics would you use? What is phantom power?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Orlando, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was extremely brief, cold, upward, discriminated, not veteran friendly. The job posting was completely different. My overall experience was the worst ever! . This suppose to be a happy land, but was not fun to come here. I would not recommended to any of my veteran's fellows.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Anaheim, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very specific and technical. I was caught off guard often because the questions they asked were not typical questions that I'm used to answering in an interview. They asked a lot of situational questions that were semi out of the box.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

    Interview

    First interview is fairly standard questions about job and educational experience. The subsequent technical interview was aimed at trying to assess your knowledge level on different analytical techniques. Rather than ask critical thinking questions or puzzles, this process was based on asking theoretical questions about your areas of expertise (define theorems, outline algorithms, etc.). The job is definitely for purely quantitative people who are interested in developing their own algorithms, software, and analytical methods.

    Interview Questions

    • Define 'x' theorem that relates to your course of study.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

    Interview

    Tough but fair. Good interview process all around but make sure you know your stuff before going in there. Interviewers seemed like very nice people and helpful in the whole process. If there's one piece of advice I could give you it is to prepare extensively to give yourself the best shot.
