    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Walt Disney Company.

    Interview Details

    Strangest interviews I've ever experienced. First interviewed via phone with dept head who talked most of the hour-long "interview." Before the call ended he said they would call me for the next step. Went to Burbank for in-person interview. The surroundings are very quiet, hot, no one walking around, not friendly - not like one would expect for this particular company.

    During the next interview, the same person said all of the same stuff he said in the first interview. He had NO questions for me. It was up to me to interject why I was a fit, ask questions. When the interview ended I asked if he had any concerns about my ability to do the job and he said no. Then I didn't get the job. I wasn't even the slightest bit disappointed because it was so strange.

    Interview Questions
    • They never asked me any questions. They do use a bicycle analogy to explain how their team is set up and they use this analogy over and over and over.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Walt Disney Company.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for a position in the Disney ABC Group. I applied on the Careers site and heard back from a recruiter the next day. A recruiter scheduled an interview with me and it was a short interview on the phone. He asked questions about my resume, work experience and fit with the company.

    A different recruiter contacted me after my first interview to schedule a video interview (was not in the area) with the director of the department. I believe there was not a manager at the time. The interviewer was 15 minutes late because he did not realize the interview was via video. He was very outgoing, and asked a few questions about myself. He kind of came out as a little stuck up, as he hardly asked me any questions. He mostly asked me to ask him questions and I didn't get very much information about the job. During my interview some one in his office also interrupted the interview and he actually made me wait while he talked to the person who came in. It was a bit unprofessional in that regards. The interview overall was okay though, I wasn't sure if I got the position or not. I did not find out how I did on my interview/no feedback. I found out on Disney careers that I did not get the position.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walt Disney Company in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was pretty basic. they called me and talked to me on the phone for a while. not many relevant questions. then after about a week i got a call that they wanted to schedule a bunch of interviews in one day. they asked me if the time was ok and i asked if we could move it earlier but they said no. so they really just wanted me to come in when they said to come in.

    Professional Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Walt Disney Company in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went through several rounds of interviews in Burbank and everything was seemingly going very well. My last interview was MONTHS ago and no one bothered to respond to my follow ups. It's heartbreaking to interview with your dream company and then to wait around for months hoping someone will call. We put a significant amount of time into interviews and risk our current jobs only to be ignored in the end. The least Disney could do is provide applicants with the closure they deserve.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walt Disney Company.

    Interview Details

    I found out about the position by a friend. This is one of those companies where it is extremely hard to get your foot thru the door. So if you know someone have them help you submit your resume. For the interview I had a phone interview and then an in person interview with a team of three (all one on ones). I was offered the position the next day.

    Senior Project Manager - Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burbank, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burbank, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Walt Disney Company.

    Interview Details

    Culture here is corporate to the extreme. Very little in the way of compassion or understanding from senior management, which can be a good thing if you are a stock holder, but bad if you are a permanent employee. Very disorganized and processless work environment, good for contractors who get paid hourly. No accountability for permanent employees who make mistakes, but contracts come and go like the wind. Typical overgrown corporate experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about some of the projects you worked on.
      Tell me about how you handled a difficult situation

    First, a recruiter reached out and expressed interest in hiring me for an internship position. Shortly after, my would-be team had a series of phone calls with me, all taking place over the course of 2 days. They extended me an offer same day, and I followed up with the recruiter.

    Interview Questions
