The Application Process || Web-Based Interview

Out of the three stages of the application process, the Web-Based Interview was definitely the one that I was the most worried about. It's a little scary to leave your fate with the program up to what is essentially a computer-based personality test.

I received my Web-Based Interview invitation about 2 1/2 hours after submitting my initial application. This interview is timed and the email says that it will take you about 40 minutes to complete, but I finished mine in about half the time. One section of the Web-Based Interview entails multiple choice questions, that are usually situational. The other section asks you to rate your answers on a scale of 1-5, from strongly disagree to strongly agree.  

The Web-Based Interview appears to test many things, such as work ethic, consistency, and personality. The main purpose is to see if you will be a good match for the company. My main advice is to answer honestly. Do not get wrapped up in trying to answer how you think Disney wants you to answer. They want Cast Members who are confident in themselves. For this reason, it is extremely important for your answers to be consistent throughout the entire interview. 

I soon found out that I was stressing over this section of the application process for no reason. I've always thought that my values are lined up with Disney's, and in answering the questions, I could tell that this was true. The best part about the Web-Based Interview was that I immediately found out that I was proceeding on to the third and final stage of the application process - the phone interview.
After finishing my Web-Based Interview, this popped up on the screen!  I passed!
