Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Seattle, WA (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Disney in February 2014.

Interview Details Phone interview with Disney recruiter then two rounds of interviews with more than two weeks between the interviews. After the first set of interviews (6 interviews lasting 30 minutes each) it took Disney two weeks to gather feedback information and decide on next steps. Feedback was that I was the lead candidate. 2nd round consisted of two 30 minute interviews that lasted more than an hour each. After two weeks, I tried to contact the hiring manager and recruiter via email and by phone. No response from either...

Marketing Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Seoul (South Korea)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Disney in March 2014.

Interview Details Headhunter did the first screening and thereafter I when to see the HR Director Mr. Baek.
First of all he was 30 minutes late to the interview. Without even saying sorry, he started to ask me questions about my previous career and my past experience. It really showed that he had absolutely no clue about marketing. He then out of no where starts bad mouthing my previous employer saying that "that company has a bad reputation in the market" and "I know why you are trying to quit from that company". I guess he was trying his "pressure interview" when asking me to think of 20 different things I can do with an object and stopping me to say I am "no good". He was extremely condescending during the interview and treated me as if I was second class citizen. I was so disappointed that I wanted to leave the interview even before it was finished - but decided to be rationale and at least end the interview on a good note - then when I am offered a job, it is never to late to reject.
So this is exactly what I have done. 3 days after the interview, I was offered a job but with minimum pay so I respectfully declined.

Interview Question – Can you cope with not having any support from other teams and working long hours alone?

How well do you cope with company politics?

Are you respectful to your senior managers?

Attractions Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Lake Buena Vista, FL (US)

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Disney.

Interview Details 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.
