    Digital Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Glendale, CA (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Glendale, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Disney Consumer Products in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I met with a number of key stakeholders in one day at several campuses. The process seemed lengthy and the structure that wove these corporate officers together was unwieldy. It didn't seem like a few of the interviewers knew exactly what they needed from the position of why the position was important, just that they needed help.

    I found one gentleman to be downright arrogant. He immediately asked me to solve a problem with no background on the "why" or "how" of the situation. It was a sort of "gotcha" moment that was intended to put people on the spot but it made him seem desperate.

    In the end, DCP seems to have the financial backing of actual goods being sold, as opposed to Disney Interactive. I enjoyed speaking with Margita, however.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Glendale, CA (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Glendale, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Disney Consumer Products in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    1. Phone Interview: General questions and afterwards asked if I was still interested in the position.

    2. In-Person Interview with a Manager: Very friendly, interview lasted almost an hour.
    Wrote her a thank you email and she responded back.

    I was never informed that I didn't get the position, or heard from anyone after that. I have been told from people that work there that they tend to hire internally or people who have interned for them before.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Disney Consumer Products in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed for a position with DCP as a financial analyst. Went through 5 challenging interviews and enjoyed meeting the individuals within the organization. Didn't end up getting the position but I enjoyed experience and that I was "runner up" in the decision. I thought I was the right candidate and 90% sure I would receive an offer. DCP attracts the right talent IMO.

    Assistant Manager, Licensing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Glendale, CA (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Disney Consumer Products in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    first call from a HR manager, who guides you through all the whole interview process (literally, as they actually walk you to and from the buildings you are interviewing in). I was asked general questions on the phone about why i want the job, my availability and then i got some advice about who'd be interviewing me, and what they're looking for.

    A week later, I interviewed with 4 different managers (hiring manager, technology manager, manager of design interactive and category manager individually, half an hour each) - all asking different questions. Another week later, I made it through to the second round - interviewed with an assistant manager and the director of the department.

    Negotiation Details
    I was given the impression that there was a range to negotiate but the final offer was actually lower than what I had asked for, and there was no wiggle room.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Disney Consumer Products in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    First, they screen you on the phone. If you pass that process they schedule in person with about 4 to 5 people. Then, they lead you on that you are a finalist and then they almost hire internally.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Disney Consumer Products in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very extensive, tedious interview process. Interviewed with 4 different people on 4 different days, often with only a days' notice. After the 2nd interview, I had already decided that the position wasn't what I wanted, but I continued on for the interview practice. After the whole, drawn-out process, no one had the courtesy to call and say I didn't get the job. Shocking since I was told that it was down to 2 candidates. Not very respectful overall.

    Undergraduate Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Glendale, CA (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, CA (US)
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Disney Consumer Products in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with 3 seperate teams within the line of business forecasting & planning side. The interviews were casual and somewhat quirky. Since it was for an internship, I feel that their screening is less intensive. Probably the most important skill they look for is excel, especially pivot tables. If you throw out that you understand and can use pivot tables you will probably be on the short list of who they want to hire.
