Attractions Cast Member Interview

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

I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in September 2014.

Interview Details

I applied online for an Attractions position with Disneyland in Anaheim. I applied on 8/29. I submitted the application and 5 minutes later, was prompted to take the web-based interview. Once I passed that, they sent me an e-mail to set up an in-person interview for a week later. I had my in-person interview on 9/4 and the interviewer (Rita) said I passed and would be placed on a waiting list for up to six (6) months, at which time I would have to reapply.

I think this is very kisleading because why would they advertise on job sites that there is an open position if there really are none.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was rather easy. I applied, they set up an interview through email communication. I went to a website and clicked on my preferred day and time. They did a phone interview. They asked a few questions such as "Why do you want to work for Disney", "Why should we hire you". They sent an email out after the interview thanking me for interviewing. They then contact you by phone if you get the job and by email if you do not.

    Interview Questions
    • "Are you creative?" I'm assuming they asked this to gauge how easily I could bring the "show" to life.   View Answer

    Not really able to negotiate. Just expected to move down, get a place and start on a certain day.

    Interview Details

    The process may have changed since my time there, it is a one-on-one interview that assesses your values and abilities. After about 30 minutes, the interviewer will give several options on what your initial position will be.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Filled out online paperwork and never got a call or email. Waited 6 months on the dot and applied again. Was emailed within the hour about an online interview(really easy basic personality questionnaire). 20 minutes after that emailed to schedule a face to face interview within the the 7 next days. Showed up 20 minutes early, waited for an hour and finally got in. Really basic tell me about yourself, why do you want to work for Disney?. After interview I was told the initial job I applied for would require a 2nd interview and the next available date for it was in June and it isn't guaranteed I would be hired for it. Or I could take an attractions job and start immediately, so I took the guaranteed money.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

    Interview Details

    Hired in 2002. Use to be nothing but in-person, 3 person group interviews, but my understanding is that this has since changed. Walked in to casting office, and was offered an interview later in the same week. Interview was easy and fairly casual. Was offered a job on the same day as interview. Dressed professionally... however many I see going for interviews now are dressed inappropriately and still get jobs.

    Interview Questions
    • Normal generic job questions, such as explain a time where you were in a group setting that not everyone agreed on an answer/solution for something.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They had me come in for a one on one in which I was offered a job in a specific department based on what I had indicated interest in. Not all departments are available all the time, so something you will be offered something in a location you might not be interested in with the opportunity to transfer 6 months into your employment.
