Attractions Cast Member Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Orlando, FL) in June 2015.

Interview

I originally applied for F&B Hostess Part-Time. I got an e-mail a week later for a web based interview (basically a personality test). After finishing the WBI, they'll tell you right away if you get a second interview or not. I scheduled my appointment for the following week (basically today). I was nervous because I was afraid that my past experience in food service and current job (a retail store) won't help. The recruiter asked if I was interested in other positions and the first thing I said was attractions. Then retail because I'm more experienced in that. He asked me a lot of questions pertaining to attractions, such as scenarios, safety, etc. He offered me a position as an attractions cast member and I gladly accepted the offer! I have to set up my own appointment for the drug test. Background check is required.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    I put in a online application. Immediately got a response to set up a interview. At interview the position I originally applied for I did not meet requirements. So they put me under attractions instead. After interview i got a call 3 weeks later about information for the job and what shoes, socks, and makeup (to cover my tattoos) i needed. Then they sent me to a drug test. 3 weeks later I had to go in and copy paperwork for them, and a week from then I started my first day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Anaheim, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    This was my first job interview so i did not know what to expect. I went in the cast member building, then signed in, then waited about 30 minutes to get called in for my interview. The interviewer was very nice and friendly. She asked me a couple of questions then told me that i had no job experience and they wanted experience for the attractions position. However, She gave me two other options such as quick service and hostess in restaurants and told me that whenever a position opened up they would schedule a phone interview. So i took the quick service and then she said that we will be in touch within 6 months. So i applied in February and am scheduled for my phone interview April.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Orlando, FL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online on September 18th. I didn't hear back until around November 18th, including a visit to the casting center to see if I could speed up the process. When I did hear back, they asked to set up a web based interview. I want to start a job very soon, so I scheduled it immediately. It asked personality questions and many " What would you do if .. " type questions. The interview had me answer those questions within 20 seconds or it would move on. It wasn't hard though. After that, on the same day, I received another email stating they would like to set up an in person interview. It was a Friday and I scheduled it for the following Tuesday. So, I went to the casting center and sat down in the lounge area for about 15 minutes before my designated recruiter came out and introduced himself. He led me into a small office hallway and then into a small room. He asked me a few questions, told me about the position I applied for, and asked me about my previous work experience. He hired me on the spot. I am put on a waiting list until a position opens up :) He also said that when an attractions position does open up, I will have to set up a time for him to call me and explain in further detail about the job and training.
