    Business Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

    Interview Details

    I applied online to a few positions. I got a pre-screen call 2 weeks later? Not sure about exact time, but quickly. It was easy- as long as you're not too awkward. Then I had my first interviewers for my second choice position call and interview me. It was technical, and I messed up a tiny bit, but they were SUPER SUPER SWEET, and I found out a week later that I got the job. After 3 weeks, I found out that my first position wanted to interview me. I ended up having a panel interview with them, and it went great. Got the call with an offer the very next day. I had asked my first team permission before interviewing with the second team, and they were so nice that they said they would hold the position if i didn't get the second offer. I felt terrible, but they assured me it was fine. I still feel bad about such a situation and would try to avoid something like that in the future. Both pay rates were similar and very low...but it was my first internship so I definitely couldn't complain.

    The interviews were mostly behavioral, if you do well there you move on to some technical questions. Not too difficult, but will depend on the job. Really great people, great interviewers. Don't lie and be honest. Loved my time with Disney, and might go back one day. Pay will probably also depend on qualifications.

    All interviews were on the phone for me.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

    Interview Details

    It was a lenghy process. First we were interviewed as a group. they asked us questions according to how we filled out the questionaire. Then they called out the names of the ones they were interested in. The rest left, never to be seen again. After that we were given a date for a second interview. The interview itself was pretty straight forward. The big thing that they were looking for was a positive or chipper attitude and honesty but it wasnt too difficult.
