    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Disney Cruise Vacations.

    Interview

    I interviewed inside of the Disney casting office (which is a magical place in and of itself). The building is full of whimsy and is a lot of fun. It's almost like walking into a park, but with a little more suited people.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about my experience. It was a fairly straight forward interview.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There really was no negotiation. They offered me the job starting the following week. It was a take it or leave it kind of deal, since I was simply a person who took reservations. I was a cog in the wheel and they really don't let you forget it.
