Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2017.

Interview

My Disney interview was barely an interview at all. It was more like, a meet and greet with the super awesome managers. I started by applying online, and within a couple days, actually, they called me back to proceed with an interview. About a week later, I interviewed, but didn't get a call back until 3-4 weeks later. The manager was super sweet and told me that they had encountered some problems, and that's what caused the delay. A week after that call, I received the employment offer via email.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Lake Buena Vista, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Thorough, friendly, and cheerful interview process. Three step process. Made aware that hiring is seasonal only right now and eventually there will be part time positions opening. Full time hires seem to be few and far between. Appearance matters, no outrageous piercings, tattoos must be covered, hair must be neat.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Lake Buena Vista, FL).

    Interview

    Getting a job at Disney World was super easy and painless. You got to choose which job you'd like, and then boom - it's yours. After you're hired you go through a long orientation and training stage, which was really helpful in learning all of the Disney standards. I really enjoyed the process, it made the transition easy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Anaheim, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Online interview questionnaire, then an in-person interview. Went to the office, had to sit and wait within the office to be called to one of the seven hiring offices. Interviewed, and the job preferences were discussed, and overall the job that they thought that you fit best for would be offered to you if they wanted to hire you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company in August 2013.

    Interview

    The first time I applied to Disneyland, I had applied for a Quick Service Restaurant position, and about a month later, I received an email basically saying that they did not need me for that position. And then about a month after receiving that email, I got another email asking me to do an online interview. So I jumped online to complete it, and it just essentially asked questions about what I would do in certain situations, etc. Then it prompted me to schedule an interview where I'd go in and meet with someone. They asked me normal interview questions such as, "Why do you want to work here?" and "Tell me about your last Disney experience!" Just basic stuff.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the most difficult questions my interviewer asked me was "Why do you want to work for Disneyland?" And it was difficult because I didn't want to give a "typical" or "cliche" answer. Coming up with a unique answer was probably the most difficult, to me at least.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    When I was given the job offer, I was told I could CHOOSE which field I wanted to be in, such as Merchandising, Hotels, Lifeguard, Custodial, etc. And if your resume fits in with what you chose, you will more than likely be put into the field you ask for.
