    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Disney Interactive Studios (Glendale, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter approached our college placement department. Had two telephonic interviews - one with the recruiter and another with the vice president of the team I was recruited in. My interview was for a specialist position in HR so questions centered around that. Both interviews were conversational and consisted of discussion about the skills acquired from my previous experiences, background and few informal behavioral questions.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Disney Interactive Studios (Glendale, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    First talked to several different recruiters. The recruiters based out of Seattle are AWESOME. This was the best part. Then, I had a phone screen with the manager which went well. After that, I had a almost 3 hour highly technical phone screen. This was HORRIBLE and the worst way to do it. i mentioned multiple times that I lived close and could come in for a long technical interview but they wanted to do it over the phone. I answered the questions well and followed up on anything I could not answer. After 2 hours though, my brain was fried and I had trouble continuing to answer. Bad interview process. They did not continue with the process. I feel if I had been brought in, I would have done much better (which I did awesome on other interviews and got multiple job offers).
