Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in July 2014.

Interview Details – First, I filled out the online application, found on the Disney careers website. I was then given the opportunity to take the web-based interview, which was more of a personality test. Since I passed the web-based interview, I was offered an in-person interview, which I scheduled for the next day. All the staff was very nice.

Monorail - General Interview

Monorail - General

I applied online and interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

Interview Details – Checked in at the reception area, sat and waited about 15-20 minutes along with other applicants for a variety of jobs. Not too many questions asked about requirements, mainly were interested in if I was able to work nights, weekends, etc. Specifics about the job duties were few, but safety was stressed as the most important aspect.

Interview Question – Did I have any visible tattoos   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Job is minimum wage, part-time, and needed to be available for any shift at any time. Not worth it for me.

Monorail Pilot Interview

Monorail Pilot
Lake Buena Vista, FL

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in February 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and got a request to schedule an interview via email and on the Dashboard on Disney Careers website. I scheduled the interview on their website and had the initial interview. It was very general, looking at my willingness to work anytime including holidays and weekends. Made it to the second interview which was more direct. He wanted to know how technical I was, how focused on safety, and my ability to multi-task. I got the job!

Interview Question – Nothing too difficult. The most important question for this job was "How well do you multi-task?"   Answer Question
