Disney College Program Interview

Disney College Program

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

Disney College Program

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.

Space and Occupancy Intern Interview

Space and Occupancy Intern
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
