    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Disney Parks (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    Meeting up with Chief engineer as well as 2 other engineers (forgot their positions). Went to a small conference room, all 3 facing in front of me. I was allowed a calculator, paper and pencil. They gave me about 15min for 10 questions. After this, I had to explain how I got to the answer, why, and do the results make sense, but also why I was not to able a question, what I needed to answer it, etc... They were nice, easy talking so it made it easier to release the stress.
