Interview

It began with a typical (30 minute) telephone screening from HR. Second, there was an interview with hiring manager and HR director. Third, I was brought in for a series of one-on-one and two-on-one interviews. Lastly, there was a final panel interview that included some repeats of those I had already met.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Seattle, WA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with Disney recruiter then two rounds of interviews with more than two weeks between the interviews. After the first set of interviews (6 interviews lasting 30 minutes each) it took Disney two weeks to gather feedback information and decide on next steps. Feedback was that I was the lead candidate. 2nd round consisted of two 30 minute interviews that lasted more than an hour each. After two weeks, I tried to contact the hiring manager and recruiter via email and by phone. No response from either...

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (New York, NY) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I was recruited by a former manager. I met her for lunch to discuss the job. Then we both had lunch with the woman who would be my supervisor. After that HR took over, negotiating the salary. I did not get exactly the base salary that I had asked for, but they threw in additional vacation time and a sign on bonus (sign on bonuses come out of a different budget, so they are often amenable). In addition, the executive health benefit was incredible. Each year I worked I was reimbursed for a bike or other piece of exercise equipment.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Burbank, CA) in March 2008.

    Interview

    Detailed and extensive. Serial interviews with both peers and supervisors. The corporate culture is consensus based--the ability to network across, between, and internal to business lines is critical. The company likes a diversity of experience. Integrity and personal standards are also paramount. The process is extremely competitive --the company can basically hire who they want. Be prepared to find ways in which your experience goes above and beyond what they are looking for.
