    Senior Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (Glendale, CA).

    Interview

    HR contacted me for a phone interview, then I came in the next day for an in-person interview with the person I would be working for. Talk with HR during the in-person interview was pleasant and mostly centered around work culture and benefits, as we had already spoken about my experience. The senior editorial person I spoke with did not seem to be especially interested in talking with me. She kept her attention on her computer while I answered her questions. I was surprised that she was so disengaged from the interview, especially as I had been asked to come in immediately so she could meet me before she went on a trip.
    The editorial area is dark and cluttered with books. No one smiles or seems to be enjoying themselves. Also, from what I saw there was no diversity in the staff. Diversity is a particular issue in publishing right now and I was struck by the fact that these are the people creating Disney's more "diverse" content, like the Moana books. After the interview I wrote thank-yous to both the HR person and the senior editorial person. I never heard back, not even a form email telling me the position had been filled. Compensation is far below industry standard, but I knew that going on. A side note: A few months after I interviewed I saw that they were trying to fill the position of the person I had interviewed with.

    Consumer Products Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interviews were over all very pleasant. I enjoyed speaking with everyone I met and didn't feel uncomfortable or intimated. They all treated me kindly and respectfully and were ver interested in my work experiences.

    However the process was long. I had a total of 6 interviews (both in person and phone) over the course of 4 weeks. I emailed them immediately after the 6th interview to inquire about the timeline and when they expected to have a decision. I went 1 week without receiving any response to my email. Finally after a 5 week long process I was rejected with a very generic, copy/paste email.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Disney Consumer Products.

    Interview

    I received an email from recruiting requesting a phone interview, which I answered and didn't hear back, so I wrote again after 4 days. The recruiter said she never got my email, and made an appointment for the phone interview. She didn't call at the allotted time, so I sent another email with no reply. The next day I reached out again and she wrote back saying she had called me several times, but I didn't answer. We made another appointment for a phone call, and she called (15 minutes late) and asked me 3 questions. She wrote the next day asking if I could go on site for an interview the next day, I accepted and she changed the schedule a couple hours later to the end of the week. I showed up for the interview, waited in the lobby for half an hour. The actual interview was great, wonderful people and a beautiful office.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (London, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I attended an assessment event with Disney in London. I took part in some ice breaker activities with other 15 students. After that I took a numeric test which was quite easy. Then I was interviewed by 2 people from the Audit department. The interview questions were quite easy. There was no competency-based questions which made me surprised. The most difficult part was the Excel test. They gave me 8 questions to answer within 30 mins. The first 3 questions were for beginner and very easy but the rest were very difficult and time pressuring.
