    Anonymous Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Lake Buena Vista, FL).

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email the next day to set up in-person interview, went to in-person interview, checked in at front desk and waited to be called in. Recruiter shook my hand and introduced herself, then immediately began walking us to the interview room asking me how many times I had worked for Disney (I answered once because I worked seasonal and then got hired part time and then had to leave the company for a while due to nearly becoming homeless). She hardly looked away from her computer, asked very few questions, then told me that because I didn't have more work history (due to school mostly causing me to only have seasonal or temporary jobs) that she couldn't hire me because she didn't feel I had proven my ability to hold a job. I told her that I worked hard in school, volunteered, and graduated with a 3.87 GPA because of my hard work and determination in school and I was currently working on my MBA. She shook her head and said school didn't matter and that she could not offer me any positions until I had six to twelve months experience with another company to prove my work stability... Wow... my loyalty to the company and hard work in school was completely shrugged off as she walked me out the doors...

    I can't even begin to express to you how nervous I was! I mean... who wouldn't be nervous!? IT'S DISNEY! It was such an easy process. The interviewer made me feel so calm. She was extremely friendly. It didn't even feel like an interview! Do not stress it! Just be yourself, that's all that matters!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very easy. I chose a phone interview. My recruiter was really nice and kept the flow of the interview going very smoothly. It was like talking to a friend in a way. Got the position on the spot. Just be happy, smile while you talk, and be honest. Most questions were centered around the "Disney Look" and where I'd like to work around WDW. Nothing too complicated.
