    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an application, and in 2-3 business days, was given an invite for a web based interview. Passed that stage, and now onto the in-person interview. As long as your resume has what they're asking in the job description, you should get an invite for the online interview just as fast. The best advice for the online interview, is be consistent and always be strong in your decisions. Try not to be in between or neutral. We'll have to see how I do for the person to person interview....to be continued.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I decided to apply for Disney world after recently moving to Florida, I applied for Merchandise. About 2 days later i was invited for a Web based interview. After that a day later i received an invite for a in person interview. I scheduled it, Walked in the casting Center, confused where to go at first but there's a ramp you go up to. Told the receptionist i had an interview, she told me who was going to be interviewing me, I sat down and waited for about 30 minutes. I was really nervous and i kept looking around waiting for my name to be called. My interviewer called my name, and immediately was extremely nice and smiley. I felt so comfortable so quick, that my nervousness went away. He asked me about my past job experiences (which was only one short job) and duties. If i had any volunteer work, asked me if i would be willing to work outside (i said yes, but i do not want to stand outside this hot humid weather). He told me that i would have be put on the wait list for merch, but Food and beverage was open. I accepted. And he gave me a couple of places i could chose to work at. I chose a cafe in the magic kingdom (indoors! Thank god!). After that he asked me which Disney character would describe me. And He gave me a paper to sign, agreeing i would not talk about any Disney secrets will learn about in the next few weeks. After that he just congratulated me,shook my hand, and welcomed me to the Disney family. He was very nice and happy! I waited for the receptionist to call me up to schedule the on boarding appointment and Traditions. I just got fingerprinted, background checked, and got my cast member i.d taken yesterday for onboarding! Excited for traditions in a week and a half!

    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.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - 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.
