Senior QA Analyst Interview

Senior QA Analyst
Glendale, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Disney Studios in June 2014.

Interview Details – There was a quick phone interview for about 20 mins followed by a face to face the very next day which was for two hours with three people one by one. The questions were related to QA and very generic.

Interview Question – Difficulty is subjective. There were a couple of questions related to writing Selenium code for filling and submitting a form which was pretty simple. Couple of java questions can take a QA by surprise. Reversing a string and adding strings to a list. These are very simple but in this google age everyone googles and gets the work done :) so sometimes you might miss out on very simple things.   View Answer

Project Coordinator Interview

Project Coordinator
Burbank, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Disney Studios.

Interview Details – I had three interviews: One screening phone-interview with a recruiter, another phone-interview with the manager of the team I would work with, and a third in-person interview with two people from my department-to-be. The phone interviews were basic questions: why do you want the job, relevant experience, etc. The in-person interview was very casual at the coffee shop on the studio lot. The questions were a little more interesting, with them wanting more examples of specific instances that could relate to the job and sussing out what I knew about the company. Overall very straightforward, just do your research about the company and all of its different holdings before you get there, and don't overdo the "I love Disney" fanaticism, because they get that A LOT.

Interview Question – The most unexpected question was: What is your dream job? It was unexpected because this interview was for what I thought was a short-term consulting position, so that seemed like an odd question, but they wanted to see if you were intent on staying within the entertainment world.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was there for a short-term consulting position, so my negotiation would likely be very different than that of a full-time potential employee. But they were pretty flexible about rates, so I'd say it never hurts to ask for what you want!

Security Supervisor Interview

Security Supervisor

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Disney Studios.
