    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (Glendale, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online to a job posting in mid-November 2017 for a Spring 2018 internship. A recruiter reached out to me a week later via email asking if I was still interested. A few days after responding yes, we talked on the phone informally and he told me he had passed my information on to the department. He mentioned that this is unusual, as he typically does a phone screen before passing applicants' info on but because this was a more technical/art-related role and my application materials showed promise, he bypassed the phone screen and we scheduled an interview. I interviewed in early December 2017 with 2 people from the team I would be working with. They asked about my work, my experience, and what excites me about work in this field. It was relaxed and enjoyable. I was contacted by the same recruiter 3 days after the interview and offered the position over the phone.

    Director of Retail Sales and Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (Glendale, CA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    The process was long with a few discussions with a outside recruiter and then Disney HR contact. The interview questions were standard and many about general requirements of the role and my past experience. Understanding the company from outside is difficult due to the size and matrix organization. There were a few hiring managers interviews first by phone and then in person. Questions were more specific to the role and category and more of a discussion versus a list of questions from a HR person. There were also a few interviews with other people in the organization which helped the decision process. Overall a solid process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (Glendale, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I had 9 interviews for this role over the course of a month. The recruiter kept in contact with me for the next four months, telling me to hold tight and gave me multiple timelines for a decision, none of which were met. Role was finally reposted without anyone notifying me. Extremely drawn out, unprofessional and disappointing experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Disney Consumer Products (San Jose, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the senior QA coordinator who was very responsive by email and was willing to accommodate my schedule to set up the interview. The interview was setup very quickly and directions were given. I was able to find the office and the person I needed to find with ease. The coordinator facilitated the interview so that I could come to their local office in my city. The interviewers were efficient and professional and asked about my background and interest in the industry. It was a pleasure describing my passion and telling them about my experience working on projects related to the job.

    Senior Editor 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.

    Negative Experience
    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.
