For me, a friend-of-a-friend let me know there was a job available at Disney. I exchanged emails with my Disney contact, which I was referred to the DisneyCareers website. I applied for 4 positions and got a single rejection email saying I wasn't qualified for the position. After I had started working at another job, I was contacted again by my internal contact at Disney wondering if I had submitted my resume since he didn't see it during the interview process on his side. I told him what happened, which prompted him to forward my resume to his manager for review. They decided to move forward with me and find a way to bypass the online system. I was assigned an internal recruiter to help me along the hiring process. Disney invited me down for a one-night stay at a deluxe resort and all day interview the next day. My all day interview went well and a few weeks later I had my offer. The rest of the process was smooth -- standard pre-employment stuff -- most of which I was able to do online.
I've been here about 1.5 years now.
Interview Question – I had several technical interviews with different people. I was asked several questions I didn't readily know the answers to. View Answer
Negotiation Details – During the inquiry phase, I told my internal recruiter what my current salary was and what I've made in the past . I also told him I knew Orlando was slightly more expensive than my current location and I really didn't want to slide backwards in my standard of living.
