    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Burbank, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to a posting on my MBA program's careers website. I was notified by e-mail that I would be invited to interview and a week after that had two phone interviews. A couple days after that I was told I would go on to the final round, a "super day" in Burbank. There were 5 other candidates there, all from top MBA programs. We were each interviewed by 6 people. 2 directors, 1 VP, 2 SVPs and the Chief Strategy Officer. These were typically 20-30m in length and almost invariably contained the "walk me through your résumé" and "why Disney" portions. I was notified that I did not receive the offer a couple days later. The process itself was very smooth and the entire team was very pleasant throughout. It was a great experience and I was definitely looking forward to working there.
    We also had lunch with some of the analysts and associates, which was a nice touch in getting to know the team.

    Employee Relations Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Burbank, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It felt like a high school break up that lasted 3 months. The interviews themselves were great, but they say wonderful things to you to your face, but then don't call or return your calls or emails for weeks...then tell you how interested they are in you and how they want you to meet the VPs...then don't contact you or respond to your follow up email for weeks on end. I finally got a voice message from the recruiter that the manager who I met with had decided to change the qualifications for the job. I expected more out of this company. It left a bad taste in my mouth and it makes me want to avoid all things Disney when it comes to entertaining my 11 month old daughter.

    Professional Staffing Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Burbank, CA).

    Interview

    It started as an exploratory interview. I didn't apply to a specific job...just in my resume blindly. It was a very comfortable atmosphere and the reception area people were very nice...making sure i was comfortable. When i started my interview, the recruiter had a way of making me feel very relaxed. Not going in for a specific position, I really had no idea what possible questions I might be asked. But, it felt more like a conversation. At some point she did say that they were interested in finding someone to support one of the recruiters. I apparently did well, as the recruiter walked me around the entire department and introduced me to everyone. I was pretty sure I was going to get an offer...and I did, a few hours later after I got home.

    Interview Questions

    • I honestly don't remember any exact questions. But, being fairly new to the interview process, I wasn't "seasoned" as to what might be asked. I went in just feeling excited about the possibility of working for the company and just decided to be me.   Answer Question
