    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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!

    Bell Services Interview

    Average Interview

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    It was a phone interview for the Guest Relations Professional Internship. I was already a cast member at the time, so my leaders who had previously been in GR gave me some pointers about what the interviewers like to hear. The call lasted about 15 minutes.

    Housekeeper Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Orlando, FL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    All interviews happen at the Casting Center, show up 10-15 minutes earlier just to be safe. The interviewer has already looked over your app slightly but still asks you questions about your answers. If not offered the job you applied for, they will talk to you about other positions whether they are currently open or not. Unfortunately, my interviewer was very condescending and mysogynistic. I'm sure other ones are not like him because I've heard only great things from others about their own interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in August 2017.

    Interview

    A phone screen lasting about fifteen minutes in which the resume is discussed, followed by a thirty minute video interview in which scripted questions are asked. Technical questions are not asked, only nebulous hypotheticals and boilerplate human resource arcana.

    Assistant Restaurant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Anaheim, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied and was called in to interview for the Assistant Restaurant Manager. After the lengthy interview process I was informed that position had been filled and was offered a food server position so I could get my foot in the door and then move into the Restaurant Manager position. It seems as though many HR staff get you in the door with an interview and then placed you in another position they need filled. Many other new employees shared the same experience.
