    Getting a job at Disney World was super easy and painless. You got to choose which job you'd like, and then boom - it's yours. After you're hired you go through a long orientation and training stage, which was really helpful in learning all of the Disney standards. I really enjoyed the process, it made the transition easy.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Walt Disney Company (Orlando, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First was a phone interview, then an in person interview. There was little question in my mind that they were looking for a cheerful personality, this seems to be the best thing to do. Smile.
    Also, during the interview, they will discuss whether you can be available at all times, and wanted to know if you had any physical problems that they should accommodate you for, for instance, hearing. This is a perfect job for either retirees or college kids. They are really professional and made me feel at ease.

    Interview

    It was smooth. Wasn't bad! Very standard. I had a two hour an interview, which was split into four interviews. Each interviewer was nice and it went pretty smoothly. I did not have a phone screening like most people so it was different.
