    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Walt Disney Company (Anaheim, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It is a long process because you need to wait until everyone has applied to be given an answer. I really enjoyed seeing how my application was progressing. I want to work for Disney and knowing that I had the chance was really important to me. I would recommend the Professional Internships to everyone who qualifies.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walt Disney Company (Anaheim, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email to complete a web-based interview. The interview took roughly 25-30 minutes. Soon after I received another email to set up an interview at Disneyland. I scheduled it for the week after the web interview. I was always taught to dress like you want a CEO job, so that's what I did. I showed up roughly 25 minutes prior to my interview, just so I could calm down a bit. (I was very nervous, I've wanted to work at Disneyland for a LONG TIME.) I waited in a lobby with other interviewees, and watched Tangled, since it was playing on the TV. My recruiter got me at 1:00, exactly the time of my interview. I sat in a very small room and my interview only took 30 minutes. Great Interview and my recruiter was very nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Walt Disney Company (Burbank, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First round phone screening form a recruiter. She asked general questions about my background and interest in Disney. About 5 days later I got an email to schedule an in office interview. There were three rounds of interviews on the first day in the office. After that, I interviewed via webcam with three different people the next day. Offer came two days later. Be sure to have questions prepared for your interview. They spent at least 50% of the time asking me what questions I had to gauge my interest and insight. Be familiar with Excel functions (VLOOKUPS, pivot tables, financial functions) and have examples of when you have used them. No hard technical questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walt Disney Company (Lake Buena Vista, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    1 phone screen + 1 panel interview. Very standard stuff, nothing out of the ordinary. I pretty much fit the mold that they were looking for, so I got to skip a few steps. If you have more interviews than that, chances are you won't be getting the position, as if there's any question regarding your ability to perform, you won't be hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Walt Disney Company.

    Interview

    Arrived to the cast center, waited about 20 minutes and was greeted by a nice lady. Asked the usual employer questions. She had a problem with me apparently no smiling enough though, but it is Disney. Eventually there were no openings in attractions (thats what she said but I think I didn't get that position because of the smiling situation) so she instead offered me a position in Food and Beverage which I took.
