    Retail Sales Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Anaheim, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Anaheim, CA).

    Interview

    I filled out the online application, then got an email back a day or so later asking me to complete an online interview questionnaire, which upon completion, immediately qualified me to continue with Disney's interviewing process by selecting a date and time for a formal "in person" interview at the Casting center. I made my interview date later for early the next week and went in and had a wonderful experience interviewing with my recruiter. I felt very comfortable talking candidly with him and I felt great about how it went. I got the feedback from him about where he felt I would be a good fit, and what my options were. I agreed to do a second interview for another position in a different department requiring one, and did that a few days later and did fine. I was advised a couple of weeks later, that I did not get that particular position, but that I had done very well in the interview itself. After email contact from my recruiter, I was told I was being placed on a waitlist for a Retail/Merchandising position when one opened up, and was told they open up fairly regularly. I was told to watch my email carefully on a daily basis for an offer, and that I had a short period of time to respond to it, and then could proceed with the hiring process. I feel confident that I will eventually be hired and look forward to working for Disneyland! I am still looking for other employment in the meantime, but unless I am offered something else with much better pay, hours and benefits, and that also interests me a great deal, I am still planning on just waiting for my chance to work for the happiest place on earth!

    Stage Technician Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in June 2015.

    Interview

    I received an email asking me to schedule an interview nearly 4 weeks after I applied. I opted for a phone interview and it lasted for roughly 20 minutes or so. It was pretty straight forward. The interviewer wasted little time getting to the questions and made no small talk. The questions were easy. I failed by not fitting the "Disney Look". Disney has a very traditional standard when it comes to physical appearance and dress code. I have the 3 things men cannot have: long hair, piercings (my ears), and visible tattoos (hardly). I understand that Disney wants to maintain a clean, conservative image, but this is the entertainment industry for crying out loud! It'd be one thing if I were a cast member or someone whose job deals directly with the public, but I'd be an A/V tech working behind the scenes. One of the reasons I enjoy the entertainment industry is because there is typically a lack of judgement for having a non-traditional appearance. Needless to say, I was pretty upset that my chance at getting an awesome job was thwarted because of a VERY conservative dress code.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a little bit about yourself?

    Retail Sales Clerk Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Norwalk, CA).

    Interview

    Phone interview at the college i was attending. The interview was right after a represtative from Disney gave a huge speech about how amazing the advantages was being part of the program and how it can benefit you...what they forgot to mention is that it can destroy your career as well and all dreams of ever working in any company owned by Disney...which today is pretty much everything.....Im writing this to help warn students about the program. They are not flexible, and will have you commit to more that 40 hrs of week all, night shift while going to school full time.. I regret doing the program. The classes taught there were also horrible...Not really professional. We gave a presentation and out teacher was falling asleep...way to go Disney...
