Summer Professional Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

Interview Details – It was an HR interview. The HR was really nice and her voice was positive, which helped me to calm down since I was really nervous at the beginning. She asked why I chose Disney for the intern and what I expect to get from the intern. I was also asked to explain how my previous intern and experience prepared me for the intern. She also asked about some difficulty I had faced and how I solved it.

Guest Service Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

Interview Details – Promoted from within. Extensive application and interview process. Three levels of management approval required just to apply for management internship. Panel interview of multiple high-level managers. Then there is a very long waiting game before you finally hear anything, and I mean months. Talk about pin and needles... Also, they make it clear that during your 4-5 month internship you are not able to take any time off at all for essentially any reason.

Interview Question – If we asked your subordinates to describe you, what would they say?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation at all. They inform you of placement and pay, but do not allow for any counter-offers or discussion.

Disney College Program Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in January 2013.

Interview Details – I submitted an application and heard back within 24 hours that I needed to do a web-based interview, which was a series of questions about my personality and work habits. Then I was invited to schedule a phone interview. My phone interview lasted about 20 minutes. I was asked to list my top three role choices, tell a bit about my work experience, and answer situational questions for different roles. I was also asked if I would be willing to meet the Disney Look. Then I was asked if I had any questions. Two weeks later, I got an email offering me an College Program position in Attractions.

Interview Question – The most difficult question is "Why do you want to work for Disney?" They have a couple of different ways they ask this question. Another hard one was "If a child is too short but wants to go on Space Mountain, what would you tell them and their family?"   Answer Question

Disney College Program Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

Interview Details – Filled out application on DCP website. The application takes a while to complete and ensures that Disney knows everything about your schooling, work history, roles you'd like, etc. Once you fill out the application, you may or may not receive a web-based interview, if you do you move on to the next portion of the interview. If not you are pending and will be NLIC'd (no longer in consideration) or pended until they send you one or applications close and then you receive a NLIC email. The web-based interview asks questions regarding how you respond in certain situations and basically analyzes your work ethic. If you pass that you receive a phone interview. You schedule your phone interview within the dates and times they have available. Once they call you for your interview they go over mandatory questions regarding disney look, schooling, work experience, etc. Then they ask you questions specific to roles you put interest in and other aspects regarding the DCP. When finished with the phone interview, you will receive an email thanking you for interviewing and it will give you a timeline on when to expect a decision by. Within that timeline you will be accepted, pended, or NLIC'd.

Interview Question – Are you a team player or do you prefer to work alone?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiating.

Space and Occupancy Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in April 2014.

Interview Details – I applied for the position through my university career website. I was contacted within 24 hours to schedule an initial phone interview with a member of their HR staff. A few days later I was asked to schedule another phone interview with the department manager who would be my supervisor. That interview occurred about a week later. Then after a three week wait I was contacted to schedule an in-person interview. The questions were all very straightforward and based on my resume. The in-person interviewers inquired a little more about my personality, but no technical questions.

Interview Question – How do you deal with a high stress environment that comes with deadline based projects?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Received a more appealing offer.
