    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Disney College Program.

    Interview Details

    First step is a phone interview with an HR recruiter. Your basic questions: Why do you want to work at disney? (I mentioned that I was a fan of the CEO and some of the acquisitions he had made - she seemed to like that) What makes you a good fit here? What are some career goals?

    The next step is an interview with an actual finance manager. I have not heard back yet but will update when I do.

    The Process can take a while. They told me up to 12 weeks from the time an application is received.

    Interview Questions
    • Not to many super hard questions yet. Those will probably come later when I interview with the actual finance manager.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Disney College Program.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through the Disney College Program site. After about 2 months, I got an email from Disney saying that I was a good candidate for the position, so they wanted me to take an online personality quiz. After taking the quiz, I was told (immediately after) that I was still eligible and to set up a phone interview. I selected a time that I was free and they called during the window. The representative was so sweet and fun to talk to, which made the interview overall pretty easy and stress-free.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me what three jobs I wanted at each park (since they have different opportunities), why I wanted them, and why I was qualified for each of them.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Disney College Program.

    Interview Details

    You have small presentation on the website, then you fill out the application, after you will be sent an e-mail to do a web based interview to talk about the type of person you are (BE VERY HONEST) questions like: On a scale of 1-5 do you consider yourself a positive person? After that if you pass that stage they will invite you to have a phone interview. The phone interview depends on the area you want to work in. Since I wanted to work at attractions all my questions were related to that.

    Disney College Program Fall/Fall Advantage 2014 Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Disney College Program in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on Sunday, February 23rd . I received the Web Based Interview that night, completed it and was immediately asked to schedule a phone interview. The interviewer asked questions about my work history, situational questions, and a couple of role based questions. I was not asked any questions about the role I was eventually offered (Attractions Cast Member).

    Interview Questions
    • What would you do in the event of an emergency   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation is NOT permitted. Additionally, make sure you make any preferences you have vis a vis ALL ROLES you indicate interest in at the time of the interview. It is not possible to make a request after you are given an offer. I fell into this trap, as I was offered a role I was not asked about during my interview and therefore did not have the opportunity/foresight to request a particular attraction.
