    Cook for International Food & Wine Festival Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Walt Disney Company in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Disney visited the campus of my Orlando culinary college on a recruiting mission for the upcoming International Food & Wine Festival being held at Epcot. It was suggested by the chef instructors this would not only be excellent experience, but would look very good on our resume or portfolio. I applied online and was called the next day for an interview. The culinary human resources person was very professional, accommodating and eager to hear what my career goals were in this field.

    Difficult - the interviewer's response was a simple yes-no to the figure you proposed.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Walt Disney Company.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position months ago and didn't hear anything for a while. Fortunately, I was asked to have a phone interview for the position. I had a single phone interview with a Disney HR person. Questions that were asked me included: "Why are you interested in a Disney Professional Internship" "Talk about a difficult interaction you had with a coworker and how was it resolved" and "What are important qualities of a leader" I was then able to ask questions to the HR representative. The interview took about 25 minutes.

    Professional Intern - Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Walt Disney Company.

    Interview Details

    Got a call a few days after applying asking to set up a phone interview for a few days later. The interviewer was with HR, no one directly involved in the position. Asked general, non-technical, behavioral questions. "Why Disney?", "Tell me about a time you had to lead.", etc. About six of those questions in total. Then ended with logistical confirmations such as whether you could transport yourself to the job location if hired, etc. Let me know that she wasn't sure if the hiring manager was going to do further interviews or if they would hire based on these interviews, which seemed odd to me as this is different than what others have said on here. Said someone would let me know in 2-3 weeks, it's been 4 and haven't heard anything, so who knows?
