    Quick Service Food and Beverage Cashier Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

    Interview Details

    I applied online about 2 months ago and finally received an invite to complete their web-based interview. It was really easy just be honest and consistent with your answers and use the "strongly" options as opposed to neutral options. I immediately received an invite to schedule an in-person interview next week. UPDATE: My interview was the easiest thing. However the position I applied for was waitlisted and given how close it was to the holidays my job options were limited to store merch or outdoor vendor. I chose store merch. Scheduled for onboarding a week later which was simple.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

    Interview Details

    It was a lenghy process. First we were interviewed as a group. they asked us questions according to how we filled out the questionaire. Then they called out the names of the ones they were interested in. The rest left, never to be seen again. After that we were given a date for a second interview. The interview itself was pretty straight forward. The big thing that they were looking for was a positive or chipper attitude and honesty but it wasnt too difficult.

    Guest Services Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 9+ monthsinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    My entire process took about 9 months. From applying to actually getting hired. I applied in Early June and heard nothing from them until October. I went in to Disneyland casting for a 1-1 interview and they informed me there were no positions available. I was put on the wait list for about 3 more months until I got called for a second interview. This interview was with the manager at the front desk. It was a group/panel interview. About a week later I was offered a position as Guest Services Host. Scheduled my on boarding appointment and got scheduled for Traditions and on the job training in mid February.

    Interview Questions
    • Be prepared to answer questions about the resort in general. Brush up on all your Disney knowledge for this position. Some questions I got asked were "How many hotels are there in the resort?" "Where can I go for a romantic dinner?" "What is character dining and where is it offered?" "Where can I go for a quick bite to eat?" "Name the two parks on property" Make sure you always use "proper" names for all locations. i.e. Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa instead of just the Grand Californian.   Answer Question

    Operating Participants Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Anaheim, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Anaheim, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    This hiring process contained an online application and a phone interview. There were no preliminary questions, which could have eliminated most of the questions in the phone interview.

    All of my phone interviews have been approx. 10-30 min late, this one was no different. It seemed as if the interviewer never even read my resume.

    The interviewer gave me a return call deadline of one week, and I didn't receive a return call until more than a business days after the deadline. The entire process seemed as if the recruiter already knew who they were going to hire before the phone interview.
