Application

I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

Interview

Submitted an application online for an hourly position and received an invitation to take a personality test a few days later. Immediately after the test I was informed that I passed and got to schedule my in-person interview. During the interview we went over my resume and job descriptions, and a few questions about why I wanted to work for the company and why I think I'd be a good fit. We took a break and then my recruiter gave me job descriptions for two positions that I might do well in, and to pick a preference. I was waitlisted for up to six months because there weren't any spots available, but contacted a week later for my second interview.

    I applied online – interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

    Interview

    Overall a pretty easy interview. Make sure to go in looking clean cut because they expect their workers to have the "Disney look" so leave a good impression!

    Interview

    It's a very difficult interview process. They want you to be as clean cut as possible and as flexible with your time as possible. If you ask questions about scheduling they see it as a red flag, even if you're a student. Worry about that after you're hired. Discuss those things with the scheduling dept.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I first had to take a character test online as part of the pre-screening before the interview. Once that was done, I scheduled a time for an over the phone interview. The phone interview wasn't too bad. The interviewer tries to get a feel of your personality and whether you're a good match for any job openings. They give a scenario and ask you how you would act in that given scenario. After my phone interview, the interviewer said that they will get back to me in 2-3 weeks.

    Interview

    I applied online and was given a contact number to schedule a phone interview according to my convenience. The interviewer was very nice and chatty; he asked me general interview questions like my work experience, challenges I overcame, my personal qualities, etc. It was my first job interview outside college and I was very nervous, but online advice I read about being perky and enthusiastic definitely helped mitigate what could have been a very awkward interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Very long process, you begin by submitting an online application form sometime in September. Get contacted around December for additional information if you've made it through the first screening process. After that you are offered an in-person interview either in Toronto or Montreal within the next two weeks. The day of the interview you must attend a presentation that morning where they review the positions available. They will do about 50 interviews a day so you sit in the waiting room until you are called in. The interviewers themselves are really friendly and outgoing so it's a fairly simple interview to go through- its the process itself that is long and tedious.

    Interview Questions

    • Wasn't really asked any difficult questions- just the basic "Why do you want to work for Disney" and "How will your university degree apply to this position"   1 Answer
