    Pros

    Fantastic experience especially if you love the company. Discounts and free entry are great and the company does do offer unique opportunities for cast.

    Cons

    The low pay. Also your experience can be really dependent on where you are.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Gold Coast) in May 2013.

    Interview

    When you go to the presentation it's pretty much one big ad on how great the company is and how you should really want to work there. You get an interview time and wait until you're called in I had a pleasant conversation no longer than 10 minutes with one of the US recruiters. I think as long as you are positive and show enthusiasm for wanting the role you have a great chance. She just asked briefly about my previous experience and about the roles I was applying for then asked questions specific to that role. After a few weeks I was sent an email with an offer of a position in Merchandise/Attractions.
