You start by applying online, then they will call you for a face to face interview. Before that though, you are given a web interview which is basically a series of common sense questions. If you pass that, then you will have a face to face with the normal questions...why Disney? Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Couple things though...Disney Look is HUGE. No visible tattoos, piercings or odd colored hair. Even highlights that are too defined will be noticed and scrutinized. If they ask if you have tattoos just say no, it will save a lot of time.

I got humiliated by the housekeeping managers at the All Star Resorts for not learning as quickly as the other housekeepers on how to clean the room.After about 5 years as a housekeeper I got burned out as a housekeeper as the job was getting harder.I could never finish on time on a busy checkout day no matter what routine I tried but other housekeepers that had 13 checkouts somehow still finished an hour or so early.The managers and coworkers were rude and two faced.You get talked down too if you are African american or a black-american since there are mostly haitians and spanish speaking cast members.If you are a dark skinned black american , Some of the haitian cast members will just assume you are one of them and start speaking to you in their native languange which is creole,and then they look at you like you are crazy when you tell them that you are American,which can start to get very annoying overtime. No offense to the Haitian people. I had no problems with the Spanish speakers though.

It depends on your role. Front line cast such as attractions can expect some OT, but others (myself included) get 0, and are encouraged NOT to do OT
