    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online for Software Engineer Co-Op role. Got rejected for the first position but my application was passed around management and I got a second interview based on my qualifications. The first interview was a video conference for a front-end position, it was very technical and consisted from 10-12 technical questions and a brief overview of my resume. The second interview for the other position was alot more relaxed, was a phone interview. Went over my resume and prior experience and since it was catered to the position it was relatively simple and straightforward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts.

    Interview

    My interview process was very smooth and quick experience. There is nothing to be afraid and to be nervous about. The casting center felt like it was part of a Disneyland Resort rather than an ordinary recruitment center. It doesn't give you that "office" vibe. When you first walk into the casting center you will be welcomed by a very friendly front desk worker to check you in for the interview. After you are checked in, they will ask you to be seated in the waiting room where you can watch Disney movies. The young lady who interviewed me was very welcoming and nice. Interviewing with her felt very casual, yet professional. Her questions were typical interview questions like why I want to work for Disney, why this position, etc. The interview only took 20-30 mins. Again, there's nothing to be nervous about! Just go there with excitement as if you're going to the park. Brush up on the interview questions. Dress professional, dress shirt, tie, and slack. Good luck!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Anaheim, CA).

    Interview

    Welcome-ing, filled with MAGIC. The Casting Department actually tries to help you find your place at Disney if you fit. They sit you in a waiting hall with Disney movies playing and Magical stuff on the wall so you really get the Disney feel when you walk in. The Cast department though are all very kind people, and make you feel as though they genuinely care about where you want to be in the Disney Company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Orlando, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was roughly 25 minutes. I had a gentleman, he was extremely kind and easy to talk to, first he discussed what he called the easiest part of the interview which was, "appearance," like tattoos, piercings, and others in such nature. Then, we discussed the working conditions like the heat/weather and if I could withstand some of those conditions. Then we went into the more personal aspects of the interview which were the types of roles that I had wanted which was Character Performer, #1 and Costuming, #2. After, we discussed my past jobs and things that I have had to deal with such as, customer service and working in a team. Overall, the experience was pleasant.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Downey, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I think that the hiring process takes time. Because it takes time for the hiring manager to determine who is ready for the interview process. The hiring manager usually gives the applicant an answer.

    Interview Questions

    • The Interview is the final step for the hiring manager to decide whether or not that the applicant gets hired or not. Because the interview is for getting hired on   1 Answer
    • Do you have reliable transportation   1 Answer
