    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Disney Internet Group in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter contacted me after I submitted an online application to a Visual Design position. The process took about 3 weeks total, I heard back from the Recruiter within 2 weeks, we scheduled a phone interview which lasted for about 45 minutes. We went over my portfolio and my past work experiences. They then connected me to speak with one person on my team. Both of them were incredibly nice and well spoken, we talked a lot about design, inspiration, and business of design. After this, my recruiter then scheduled me to speak with all my other team members back to back. Everyone asked very different questions and were very insightful in letting me know the work culture.

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Disney Internet Group in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Agency recruiter contacted me and set up initial conversation with hiring manager. Subsequently had technical phone screen with a developer. Called in for onsite technical interview consisting of 3-4 rounds, including deva and hiring manager (also technical). Called back to meet with another manager.

    Interview atmosphere was mostly friendly and cooperative, rather than adversarial or trying to show you how dumb you are. Interviewer questions seemed well thought out (good preparation).

    • Don'recall any especially difficult or unexpected, but was asked typical questions about reversing strings, sorting structures, etc. Also got asked about data caching concepts, and probably basic SQL (don't recall).   Answer Question

    Negotiation Details
    Salary offered was acceptable; benefits were exceptional.

    Since I was joining the company mid-year, it would be 18 months before I'd be eligible for a Short Term Incentive Program (STIP) bonus. I was able to negotiate a signing bonus based on a pro-rated amount of the estimated STIP bonus.

    Production Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  North Hollywood, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Hollywood, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Disney Internet Group in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    The HR recruiter reached out to me regarding this role that I had applied for. She provided more detail about the role and asked I was still interested. I answered that I was interested and she set up an in-person interview for me.

    The in-person interview consisted of meeting 4 team members in addition to talking to the HR recruiter at the beginning of the interview. The team members were very enjoyable to chat with, they just wanted to gauge how well I would fit into the team and the role. There were a few questions about my skills set and other questions about how I would handle certain situations.

    After the in-person interview, I received a call that evening with a verbal offer. The offer letter was sent to me the following week and I officially accepted. They were able to run my background check throughout the next 2 weeks which coincided well with me giving my 2 weeks notice to my previous employer and wrapping up my previous role.

    Overall I found the process standard and the interviews relatively easy.

    Negotiation Details
    Disney offered me $5K less than my previous position. When I tried to counter, they said they were at the limit to what they could offer me. IMHO this might be true; I am highly paid at what I do.

    Senior Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Disney Internet Group in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Getting an interview at Disney is the hard part. They often fill posted positions internally and rely greatly on references. Try to track someone down at Disney to refer you when you apply for a job. The interview process starts with a phone interview from HR, then they bring you in if it seems like a fit. The whole process from the HR call to an offer can take a long time - probably 4 to 8 weeks.

    My interview was fairly long. I met with 4 different people, 30 minutes each. Questions were standard. They like to make sure you're a fan of the Disney brand and that you've had experience working on brands with strict guidelines. There are a lot of people at Disney who live and breathe the brand, so try to be excited, upbeat, and positive. They might ask questions like "What's your favorite Disney character?" Culture is very important to them. Make sure you don't dress overly formal. The people who work there tend to be friendly, confident and warm.

    Interview Questions
    • Have you worked with Disney IP before? Or have you worked with any brands with strict guidelines?   Answer Question
    • What is your favorite Disney brand or character?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    For every position there is a range of roughly 10k. Definitely negotiate to make sure you're coming in on the higher end of the spectrum. But ask for anything outside of that 10k range they are going to be totally inflexible.
