You complete a questionnaire to help filter out applicants. Next your application gets reviewed for the positions you applied for. They call you to set up a interview in person. Arrive at the Green Building. Dress professional. Maintain a fun & bubbly personality. Get Hired. Resort Information Training will be on the weekend. Your second day of weekend training they give you your ID, perform background check, and assign your location. Then you get scheduled a location to meet with your Trainer to show you around your location.

At least 4 separate interviews but they are streamlining the process

Report answer

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.

Very good.

Answered - Ride Show Technician (Former Employee) - Lake Buena Vista, FL

Report answer

Essentially, you have several interviews. You start by filling out a generic form and from there a computer decides if your application qualifies. Then you move onto the "web interview," which consists of awkwardly worded questions that you answer. If you pass that interview then you schedule a phone interview and talk to a recruiter.
