Application Details

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

Interview Details

Campus recruiting email was sent out for in person interviews. Sat down and had a 30 minute interview which was enjoyable. They mentioned that they traditionally offer invitations to interview at Orlando 2 weeks after the first round. Received an email 2 weeks later informing me that, though I was a strong candidate, I would not be receiving a second round interview. Still a pleasant process.

    Interview Details

    3 month long process. Disorganized communication with HR. 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. Second round interview was much more informal. Received notice of offer three months after I had applied or 2 months after the initial interview.
