Real Estate Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Burbank, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Disney in March 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online through their job board and once was contacted via email by someone in HR wanting to set up a phone appointment. After the phone appointment (screening) I was invited to the lot in Burbank for an interview. I thought I would be interviewing with one person but I actually had three back to back interviews with the different supervisors in the department.

Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Seattle, WA

I applied in-person and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Disney in February 2014.

Interview Details – Phone interview with Disney recruiter then two rounds of interviews with more than two weeks between the interviews. After the first set of interviews (6 interviews lasting 30 minutes each) it took Disney two weeks to gather feedback information and decide on next steps. Feedback was that I was the lead candidate. 2nd round consisted of two 30 minute interviews that lasted more than an hour each. After two weeks, I tried to contact the hiring manager and recruiter via email and by phone. No response from either...

Difficult Interview

Attractions Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Lake Buena Vista, FL

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Disney.

Interview Details – You apply online and then go through a thorough personality quiz, then if you pass you go to Downtown Disney (in a tough to find building) and take the interview. However, if your resume isn't perfect in every way (they make no concessions for how the economy's been) with a lot of recent experience in a related position, they'll make a big deal out of it and nicely but firmly berate you for it as if it's all your fault. They don't bother looking at anything until the interview so you have to go to the interview to know their feelings about your resume. Also if you don't answer questions exactly the way they want, they'll count it as wrong even if it's a usually good answer to the question. After they feel the screening is done, they immediately tell you if you've moved on to the next interview or not. They obviously get a lot of candidates for each position. Since most jobs listed online (which is where all listings are) are college internships, that really cuts down the # of non-intern jobs. So they're as picky as possible. Only apply if you're really confident you can get in.

Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at Disney

Interview Details – Process was fairly straight forward, recruiter call, followed by a management call, and then an onsite. The difficult part was it was somewhat disorganized and had the hurry up and wait feeling. Everyone was very friendly and open, easy to converse with. Company has a very open culture and encourages moving around/meeting others.

Interview Question – None really, a few basic case questions, just stop and think and you'll be fine. They did want samples of previous work.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Mobile Connected Devices Graduate Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Disney in March 2014.

Interview Details – Receiving an email to schedule for a phone screen, I search on glass door and found out that the first phone screen would be surround by behavioral questions.

And it is actually in this way! The recruiter called me and told me that this is not going to be a code interview, and probably could not be called an interview since she is going to tell me more about the position. Then she explain about the position, check my availability, let me know where I would work, and how long I am expected to work a week.

She did read through my resume really carefully, so ask about what's my primary coding language, and what's the second. She also ask me about my game development which I don't have, I told her that I only have experience on develop systems.

She asked about the project I listed in the resume, wanted to know how it goes, and whether it is a self-project or school project.

Overall the experience is just great! The recruiter is so nice and friendly and eager to know more about you!

Interview Question – Probably talking about my game dev experience which I don't have   Answer Question
