    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online with simple questions and work history information. Received an email a few hours later asking me for more information and questions about myself and work situations. Immediately after, I was offered to schedule an interview. I picked the very next day to go in. Went in to the Casting Center 10 mins for my scheduled time. I had to wait about an hour to be interviewed (it was sorta like waiting in a doctor's office - they call your name in order of when you came). The process was really easy. The interviewer just asked about my past and current part time job and experiences. It is a simple job so not a lot to really ask since I have worked retail before. I have a lot of visible arm tattoos so I was a bit worried this would hurt me. I'm required to wear long sleeves and the interviewer even made sure I'd be put in a spot that's always indoors and has a/c! Overall it was a very good experience.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question was how I'd try and explain merchandise to people of different languages. Not really THAT unexpected since people come all over the world to visit.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation on pay. I was allowed some freedom to choose where I work and which days.

Make sure you are smiling through out the whole phone interview, even if they can't see you. They could hear your smile through your voice.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process is simple and fast. Most likely if you have an interview you already have the position. they give you all instruction and destinations to where you need to be.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult or unexpected question asked might be, Why do you want to work for Disney, because you think that if you answer wrong you might not get the position. Again you most likely already got the position, unless it is a position that needs more qualifications.   Answer Question
