Initial interview which involved an Excel test, case study, and speaking with three of the Director, Manager of Finance, Finance Manager, and previous position holder.

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

Interview Details – Initial recruiting interview conducted over the phone. Second interview brought in for a 2 hour panel interview with 3 different panels.
