    Security Cast Member Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company.

    Interview

    Several steps to get an interview. One was a web based assessment test. Once you pass, you can set up a phone interview. Hiring out of state is tricky. I was not offered a position since I did not possess a Florida drivers license (even though job posting said it could be accepted after employment offer). Was told I could apply again once I had a Florida license. I know some people had an offer before getting a FL DL. I guess it depends on your interviewer.

    Hostess Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Orlando, FL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The process was smooth and didn't take as long as I was expecting. I applied for the opening online. About a week later, I was sent an invitation for the Web-Based Interview, which was very easy. It has two parts, the first is like a personality test where you rank the sentence on a scale of "strongly disagree" or "strongly agree." It asks things such as "I am always on time." Part two just asks you situational questions, and these typically had clear answers. You find out immediately after whether you qualify for the phone interview. Since I passed, I proceeded to schedule my phone interview in the closest slot, which was a week later. The phone interview took about 15 minutes and asked many questions relating to the role I had applied for. When complete, the woman kindly told me I sounded like I'd be amazing for this role, and asked if I was free the following day for an in-person interview at casting, since that role required a secondary interview. Thankfully I was, and the next day I went in for that. Many questions were similar, though these were less role-specific and more about who I was and my experience. I was then asked to interact with a mannequin head as if she were a guest at the Boutique, and style her hair into a ponytail. It was a little awkward but I just embraced it and talked as if I already worked there. She loved it, and I was then told more about the role and to expect follow up contact soon. A few days later I received a call telling me I'd got the job, and to expect an email soon with additional details and the official job offer! Overall, it was quick, fun, and Disney made it smooth and painless. Both women who interviewed me were as kind as could be and made me feel relaxed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Orlando, FL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    You will go through 3 to 4 interviews just to be a contractor. Phone screen then with recruiter. Phone screen with recruiter from Disney then a conference phone interview with about 4 people including technical questions. If you make it past that then a face to face with about 5 people. Bombarded with technical questions which I did elaborate on all in depth. The recruiter stated that I would know the same evening. I emailed him and called leaving messages but no response. A week and a half later I finally got ahold of him. I did not get the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    One phone interview with the HR representative. In-person interview with the manager and the director. HR only gave me five business days to schedule an interview and once the in-person interview was over, no follow up was given by HR. Terrible.

    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.
