    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company in March 2017.

    Interview

    I took a personality quiz the first time I applied for the Disney College Program, it was saved to my profile so I didn't have to take it again. This made the process move a bit faster. I waited for about 4 weeks until they requested a phone interview. Then I waited another 6 weeks after the interview for my job status to change from In Progress to No Longer in Consideration.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I applied, got a call 3 weeks later and got a scheduled interview a week later. I went in and was surprised how laid back my interview was. It was mostly about my personal hobby. The interviewers were nice and friendly, they seemed so cheery. It was refreshing. I would recommend everyone to just relax and be yourself. Some things just aren't too much about qualifications so don't just focus on that. I think its mainly about them getting to know a bit about you rather than your skills. Remember skills can be taught, attitude can't.

      What can you tell me about yourself?
      What was the worst part of your past internship?
