    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very lengthy. After I applied, I received a screening interview from a recruiter (Late August). She asked me what my interests were and more basic interview questions. About a month or two later I started to receive requests for interviews with various departments that I applied for. I received an offer mid December.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call from the recruiter 2 weeks later. I had a brief discussion about my past work experience. 5 days later I got an email to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. This took about 30 minutes and we discussed more in details about my previous work experience. The next day Disney invited me in for a formal in person interview and was going to fly me in. At this time, I was promoted at my current job and decided to decline the in person interview.

    PhotoPass Photographer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lake Buena Vista, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lake Buena Vista, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The initial application and first part of the interview process are all completely online. They even tell you to go online if you walk straight into the Casting Center (they have computers right there that you can use if you want).

    It took only a few hours after submitting my initial application to be invited to Part One of the interview process, which is a multiple-choice questionnaire about yourself, your personality and work ethic. Immediately after you submit the last answer, they'll tell you if you'll be advancing to the next part - an in-person interview at the Casting Center, and they give you a window of about ten days to schedule the interview.

    My interview was somewhat disappointing, only because she seemed to have already decided to hire me, and I'd been expecting to make my case and explain why I want to work for Disney or other standard interview questions. The position I wanted hadn't been available when I initially applied, but I had applied to it in the past, so when I sat down with the recruiter and she pulled up my profile on the computer, she saw that I'd applied to PhotoPass previously and told me there was a new opening and asked if I wanted it. Of course I said yes!

    Interview Questions
    • We only really discussed available openings to determine which would be the best fit for me; she seemed to have already decided to hire me for SOMETHING, so I didn't really have to answer any typical interview questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Deciding when to start. I'm moving from out of state and needed to give the two-week notice to my current employer and find a place to live. Pay didn't seem to be at all negotiable.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received an email from human resources for Animal Kingdom about two weeks later wanting to set up a date and time for two separate phone interviews. The first interview was with the hiring manager for Animal Kingdom's Facilities department and the second interview was with the hiring manager for Animal Kingdom's attractions department. Both interviews consisted of the typical behavioral questions. The attractions interview asked a couple of technical questions regarding hydraulics and other areas. Overall not a bad experience at all.

    Interview Questions
    • The attractions engineering manager specifically asked me if I wanted to do facilities or attractions. Didn't know what to say since I didn't want to burn any bridges. Tried to beat my way around the bush but he kept pushing.   View Answer
