    It was very relaxed, it just seemed more of a discussion to see where to put you in WDW. There was still the typical interview questions though. Walked out of it knowing where I was gonna work and orientation all set up.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online. Received email 2 weeks later to schedule phone screening, which I chose a slot for a couple days following. Received prompt call from HR Recruiter based in Florida, who wanted to verify some application information and the only general interview question she asked was why I wanted to work for the company.
    Received an email 1 week later to confirm I "passed" the screening, and to schedule an in-person interview. Chose the very next day, first slot.
    This is a DVC position, so was handled not at the usual location (Staff Services? HR HQ?) but inside the actual DVC location next to the Disneyland Hotel. Questions were professional, and nothing out of the ordinary of a typical non-entry level position. No questions at all related to Disney as a company or the parks. Afterwards, spent a while getting a tour of the facilities and talking to over 15 current cast members. Left on a positive note, and was told I would definitely receive a call within a week either way.
    Received that polite but short rejection call 2 months later, oh well.
    The Hiring Status is not reliable so if you apply, do no rely too heavily on what those rare updates say.
    Overall a very positive interview experience, even though I did not get the position. Does take a very long time to get anything processed, but it's Disney and they are a very large company, so don't be surprised by how long it takes.
