    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company in November 2016.

    Interview

    I have 7 interviews in total. 1st was a phone screen with a recruiter. 2nd was with the person who would be my supervisor. The next 4 were with different people on the team. Final interview was a brief Skype call with the same supervisor from the 2nd interview. Had a final follow-up call with recruiter who then gave me the offer. I was told that this position had a lot of interviews because it was a brand new internship within a new team. Most I believe have 2.

    There were no curve-ball questions, all related to my experience. A few personality questions. Nothing too tough, just be prepared to answer any questions about your experience and what was on the application.

    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.

    Interview

    I received a web-based interview a couple hours after applying, which was relatively easy. Try to avoid giving neutral answers; it looks better to answer strongly whether you agree or disagree. A couple days later, I had a phone interview. They asked about my resume and general behavioral questions. There were a few role-specific questions as well, but nothing too challenging. My interviewer was friendly, and the phone call lasted about 20 minutes in total.

    Mobile Quality Assurance Tester Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Glendale, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was easy. I went to their Glendale location and was welcomed by Senior QA coordinator. Did not have to wait long. I was told to bring a self-signed non-disclosure agreement form and hand it to her before interview She asked me "When can you start?". Then I was taken to Senior QA engineer for the technical interview. He was very friendly. First he told me about the position, asked me if I could do overtime(more than 40hrs/wk) and whether i accept the hourly rate or not. I was expecting some serious QA questions but overall questions were fairly basic. First he asked me "Tell me about yourself"?, and some other easy questions related to my experience in QA like "have you found any bugs before. Describe it"? and "What tool you used to test mobile apps". Then he asked me "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?". After interview process is terrible. After sending 5 follow-up emails i am still waiting for their answer. At this point I know I am not selected. But if you can send one email describing that. It would not hurt.
