    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company.

    Interview

    The interview was quite laid back in style . I had a basic maths test and then a one to one interview with two members of staff from the teamI was applying for. General interview questions, nothing unexpected.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Hammersmith, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I saw the process from both sides - I was recruited and then recruited the next intern to replace me. At first we went over the CV and cover letters, specifically looking for courses which had Project Management units. These CVs were then shortlisted and we set up Skype interviews. From these candidates we selected a further 3 to come in for face-to-face interviews before offering one successful candidate the role.
