    Application Details

    The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burbank, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burbank, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Disney Internet Group in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    The recruiting process was a mystery for me.

    I applied online for a web/html developer position.
    Initially, a recruiter called me for a position for a position in international software
    development. It was a casual talk about my general background and exp.

    Then I never heard back from her.
    Seems that these contract recruiters, though they only hire for Disney, work like freelance
    placement agents. They simply work to make commissions, it seems. Nothing was clear,
    whether the position is open, or what skill sets they are looking for.

    Production Coordinator Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.

    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.
