Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Walt Disney Company in August 2013.

Interview Details

The first time I applied to Disneyland, I had applied for a Quick Service Restaurant position, and about a month later, I received an email basically saying that they did not need me for that position. And then about a month after receiving that email, I got another email asking me to do an online interview. So I jumped online to complete it, and it just essentially asked questions about what I would do in certain situations, etc. Then it prompted me to schedule an interview where I'd go in and meet with someone. They asked me normal interview questions such as, "Why do you want to work here?" and "Tell me about your last Disney experience!" Just basic stuff.

Interview Questions
  • One of the most difficult questions my interviewer asked me was "Why do you want to work for Disneyland?" And it was difficult because I didn't want to give a "typical" or "cliche" answer. Coming up with a unique answer was probably the most difficult, to me at least.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
When I was given the job offer, I was told I could CHOOSE which field I wanted to be in, such as Merchandising, Hotels, Lifeguard, Custodial, etc. And if your resume fits in with what you chose, you will more than likely be put into the field you ask for.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walt Disney Company in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    I initially walked into the store looking for a part-time job. I obtained an application, turned it in later that day, and about two weeks later I got a call from the store offering me a chance to come in for an interview. I said I would, and showed up to the store. The manager took me outside into the mall with a group of about four other people, and started chatting with us. He was very friendly, and obviously quite enamored with "Disney" and what it stood for. He asked us all the same question in a Round Robin kind of style. The question that seemed to matter the most to him was, "If you were a Disney character, which would you be and why?"

    Although he was very friendly, it seemed like the typical Disney "act." He wanted you to buy into what he was selling, to want to become a part of the Disney culture. We were still being treated like "guests," in a way, but also being analyzed for our ability to thrive under pressure, have the Disney attitude, work with others, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • Which Disney character would you be, and why?   Answer Question
    • If you had an angry customer, how would you handle the situation using your Disney attitude?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation phase. As it was a part-time mall job, I was offered minimum wage.
