    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in October 2014.

    Interview

    I first did an online application through a recruitment agency in August as I was applying for the International College Program, I had to answer basic questions, employment history other questions were things such as what is your favourite Disney movie and why?
    I then did a group interview at my university in September/ October where there was a presentation and a few Disney related 'fun' questions, we were then split into groups and told what time to come back at, the interview was pretty informal, we introduced ourselves then talked about our favourite Disney characters and if we had been to the parks. The first two stages seem more like a formality.
    Finally I went to London for an interview at Disney HQ at the end of October/November, we had to be there for around 8 am so make sure you stay somewhere close by, you then do another presentation and 'fun' Disney questions and are given a time when to come back for the real interview. There are around 8 people in a group and a selection of interviewers for Disney there is also an interviewer from Central Michigan University. They ask a lot of questions mainly about your CV so make sure you know what's on it! They ask how you would deal with being so far away from home and also give you scenarios of irate guests and ask you to say how you would deal with the situation.
    I got the job and was notified in mid December, so be prepared for a scary wait between each step but it's worth it.
