    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Orlando, FL) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process is very smooth & efficient, like all procedures in this company, because they have already narrowed their candidates down to the final considerations. The interviewers make you feel very comfortable by properly introducing themselves, and some may even ask a little about you that is not work related to relate on a more personal level.

    Very Simple. Common interview questions. First step is over the internet, then a follow up phone conversation. Lastly, you go in for an interview. This is a simple process but a little long.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Orlando, FL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The initial interview was on the web, and the second was in person. They only gave a week to schedule the in-person interview, so if you are a few states away it could be a time crunch. Questions were fairly basic, and interviewer mainly went over what the job description entailed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Burbank, CA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Pretty standard process. One interview at school followed by a "Super Saturday" type day at their offices. 4 people interviewed, I am the only one who received an offer to my knowledge. Some technical questions about portfolio theory etc. but nothing too complicated. Met with about 8 people including the Pension Fund Head and the Head of Corporate Treasury.

    Attractions Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Lake Buena Vista, FL).

    Interview

    You apply online and then go through a thorough personality quiz, then if you pass you go to Downtown Disney (in a tough to find building) and take the interview. However, if your resume isn't perfect in every way (they make no concessions for how the economy's been) with a lot of recent experience in a related position, they'll make a big deal out of it and nicely but firmly berate you for it as if it's all your fault. They don't bother looking at anything until the interview so you have to go to the interview to know their feelings about your resume. Also if you don't answer questions exactly the way they want, they'll count it as wrong even if it's a usually good answer to the question. After they feel the screening is done, they immediately tell you if you've moved on to the next interview or not. They obviously get a lot of candidates for each position. Since most jobs listed online (which is where all listings are) are college internships, that really cuts down the # of non-intern jobs. So they're as picky as possible. Only apply if you're really confident you can get in.
