    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Walt Disney Imagineering in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Sent in my resume through the posting on their website. Had a phone interview later on. It took me four weeks and two emails to finally have them tell me that they were going to hire someone with more experience. That's fine for a normal job, but internships are for learning. Hiring someone with more experience is not the point.

    Senior Project Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walt Disney Imagineering in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I learned via newspaper advertising of a very specific position for which I believed I was uniquely qualified. I was very familiär with the organization, justifiably famous for its highly regarded and innovative world class projects. I knew an individual of some influence at the firm so rather than submit to HR I called him directly to ascertain the chances of succeeding to sucure the position. He researched the climate and upon a return call, agreed I was ideal for the position, had made an arrangement for me to be interviewed by the department head who would make the hiring decision. I was strongly cautioned not to submit anything to HR and to be very wary of the personality of my Interviewer.

    Interview Questions
    • I was advised in advance that I would be interviewed by an individual with a completely self-congratulatory and outsized Ego, and that i would best serve my chances by listening to this person catalog his personal excellence and position in the company. I am very talkative and wanted to explain my abundant portfolio of work but spoke very little. My interviewer flipped through my portfolio criticizing odd aspects of the work, as if he were a city plan-checker or high school teacher and expressed incredulity that I could have produced such a volume of good work so early in my career (he imagined me to be in my early twenties and I was more than a decade older). I was hired but only temporarily which continues as a hiring practice at this company.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was glad to secure the job. However, the employment offer that was submitted was under-represented as to the seniority of the position and after accepting employment I found myself at nearly the bottom of the career ladder. The open position required in excess of ten year's experience in a very specific specialization of my Profession, which experience I amply demonstrated. However, I was to be employed only at a substantially reduced compensation and job classification. There was absolutely no room for negotiation. The only commentary when questioning the offer, in comparison to the HR-listed opening was :"this is a company where you have to pay dues first." So, I accepted employment ostensibly to get my foot in the door and strived for advancement once a füll time employee.
