    The process took a day - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    After applying online and taking a pre-screening test, I signed up for an interview with the Disney College Program. You only have one phone interview and it lasts a maximum of 30 minutes. Just be honest and open in your interview...The questions are pretty standard, ranging from why you want to work for Disney to your previous experiences in the hospitality industry. They will ask you about a time when you had guest interaction and how you feel about interaction with guests from different cultures, as well as a few questions about situations that you might encounter, depending on the jobs that you selected to apply for. They will also ask if you would consider custodial or quick service, but usually if you say you will, that's what they will give you. So if you don't want to do that, just say no. They will also ask if you have ever been to Disney, or what you associate with Disney World. After the interview, they will contact you within a given period of time (they will tell you in the interview) with whether or not you were accepted, and for what position. You will receive this by mail. It's pretty easy to get this job, not a lot of people are rejected. Just make sure you know what you're getting yourself into before you apply because it is not for everyone.

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Relatively painless process. I applied online and got contacted for a phone interview about a month later. They asked basic questions like "tell me about yourself" and "why do you want to work for Disney?". A few days later I got an e-mail invitng me to an in-person interview.

    There was a large group at the interview, and we watched a presentation. The recruiters were watching us to see if we smiled and were warm with the other interviewees. Then we were called into a room in groups of 2 or 3 and asked very simple questions about our resume. From that point it was pretty obvious you either had it, or you didn't.

    I think almost everyone at the interview was offered a position in the College Program.
