    Overall a pretty easy interview. Make sure to go in looking clean cut because they expect their workers to have the "Disney look" so leave a good impression!

    Interview Details

    I applied at disney online and received a web interview 30 mins later. It is basically a personality test. Once you pass that, they will send you an email to schedule an in person interview. I was able to schedule an interview in 3 days. When I interviews they asked me why I wanted to work here, their priority, and availability. Then they took me to the fingerprint and picture room.

    It's a very difficult interview process. They want you to be as clean cut as possible and as flexible with your time as possible. If you ask questions about scheduling they see it as a red flag, even if you're a student. Worry about that after you're hired. Discuss those things with the scheduling dept.

    Interview Details

    Everyone has an initial phone screen and then a second interview (typically panel - you can choose in person, phone, or Skype). Everyone is super nice, but the process is incredibly long and pretty ambiguous.

    Pricing Analytics Professional Internship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    When applying for professional internships you must first input your info online (resume, cover letters, transcript). From there you may be asked to take part in a phone screening interview. The screening questions are very easy and basically about your skills, an overview of your work history, strengths and weaknesses, and whether or not you meet their basic requirements (legal resident, can provide your own transportation, etc.). It's a very simple interview, but make sure to show lots of enthusiasm and go into great detail about how awesome you are. Also, make sure to elaborate on the professional internships you are specifically interested in. If you don't do these things you are very unlikely to stand out from the hundreds (if not thousands) of other candidates. The notes taken in your screening interview are what the recruiters from all the different PIs look at when deciding which candidates to interview.

    I was only given one second interview (I applied for 6 separate PIs). This interview was for their pricing analytics internship. I studied and prepared, but I was not prepared for the types of questions they would ask. They primarily asked complex situational questions (some 4-5 parts). For example: "If we wanted to build a fifth park, where should we build it? Why there? What should the theme be? Why? What would you do to determine these things? Etc." I'm not sure if they were actually looking for good and complex answers or if they were mostly looking for how I handled the questions. I was not able to keep up with the rapid fire questions, and I know I failed to answer certain parts. Instead, I did my best to keep a cool head and think my answers out.

    You should also keep in mind that their preferred qualifications are for MBA and masters students. It might be a good idea to take this into account when choosing which PIs to apply for. In other words, spread out your applications.

    I hope you have better luck than I! I was not offered a position.
