's Answer #1
"In my current position, we break our team every day into smaller groups of 10, with one leader. Yesterday, I quickly realized that I was the most seasoned of the group and so it was natural for me to be the leader since I had the majority of the answers. I really enjoyed that aspect of the work and was complimented by my supervisor on the end result. Everyone worked well together and knew the goals of the team."
's Answer #2
"I naturally take on a leadership role every day, with our new and junior staff. I like to train others and show them the best practices to make their work life a bit easier."
Anonymous Answer

Anonymous Answer
"From an early age, I have always assumed a leadership role in just about all of my jobs. Sometimes it was because of my demeanor, sometimes my experience, but mostly, it was because I got the job done right. When I was younger, it was my demeanor — being in a group of younger people that were only interested in getting to the end of the day so that they could hang out. I have never been that type. I could always separate work and play. As I got older, my experience is what others look at. People were comfortable listening to what I said. They knew that I would explain and help, when necessary. Again, helping your team members is what a good supervisor does."
Lauren's Answer
You provided a lot of great information and context about yourself. I assisted with answering all three parts of the question.
"I have naturally assumed leadership roles from a young age. I have had a goal-driven, hard-working spirit for as long as I can remember. People naturally tend to gravitate towards me as a leader because of my energetic, go-getter mentality. I acquired a leadership role within a previous workgroup, and it felt like a natural fit. I enjoyed being a leader or someone the others looked up to because I exude confidence and provide clear instructions. I was very happy with the outcome because I ensured our group completed projects correctly and efficiently."

Why were you fired or let go from your last job?
Being terminated does not have to be an embarrassing or shameful situation. If you were terminated, be open and honest with the interviewer regarding your dismissal. Be sure to let the interviewer know that you can provide positive references despite a previous termination.

's Answer #1
"I was terminated from my last position due to my inability to relocate to the new location that my company was opening. It was unfortunate but I am confident that I will find the right fit again shortly. Despite my termination, I am able to provide you with strong work references."

At Walt Disney World we do everything we can to reduce wait times for our rides. During peak hours, the wait times can still be up to one hour. How would you handle a customer who was really impatient and angry while waiting in line?
No matter the industry, you will always come across customers who are impatient, do not like to wait, and act as a disturbance to others. Do you have any training in customer dispute resolution? Perhaps you have handled a situation like this before? Assure the interviewer that you are capable of professionally, and maturely, handing a situation like this.

's Answer #1
"I have had my fair share of customer dispute resolution from previous roles in retail and restaurants. When a customer is impatient, angry, or an overall disturbance I will politely ask them to calm their voice and have a productive conversation with me so that I can help them to achieve what they want. This generally diffuses the situation."
's Answer #2
"If I cannot calm an upset customer down, I will call my supervisor or security - depending on the severity of the customers' actions. If I were the manager and could not calm the customer down, I would ask them to leave. I understand that the customer comes first; however, not at the cost of an enjoyable environment for other visitors."
Anonymous Answer
"I would immediately call for a supervisor. While waiting for them, I would calmly explain how we at Disney do everything possible to keep lines down, while keeping the guest as calm as possible."
Rachelle's Answer
This is a great answer!
"If a visitor became angry and impatient while waiting in line, I would call for a supervisor. While awaiting the supervisors' arrival, I would calmly explain how Disney does everything possible to keep the lines down; keeping the guest as calm as possible."
Was this answer helpful? Yes or No
Anonymous Answer
"Being a frequent Disney customer, I have seen this in the past. I would say that I would try to calm the customer first to diffuse the situation. Sometimes people need to vent. If that didn't work, call a supervisor for help. If it looks as if the customer is going to get out of hand, by either by being verbally abusive or violent, I would call security."
Lauren's Answer
You are on the right track in providing context as things escalate. I assisted with alternate wording.
"As a workstyle standard, I would greet customers and ask how their day is going. If I came across a customer who was agitated, I would assess their level of discomfort. Sometimes, patrons need to vent their dissatisfaction. If, however, the situation began to escalate, I would rely on the park’s policies and procedures to de-escalate the situation."

Because Walt Disney World is a family attraction, there are many crowds. Children sometimes become separated from their parents. What would you do if you saw a small child who was crying and alone?
Walt Disney World Co. will have clear guidelines on how to handle children who have been separated from their guardians; however, the interviewer would like to know more about your personal instinct in a situation like this.

's Answer #1
"I have worked retail in a shopping mall setting and we were always told to immediately bring the child to the closest security guard who would then bring them to the customer service kiosk. That is where most parents will go first when they notice that a child is lost. If this happened at Walt Disney World Co., my first instinct would be to do the same."
's Answer #2
"Can you tell me a bit about your protocol surrounding a situation like this? I would follow your company protocol to a tee in situations such as this."
Anonymous Answer
"I would take the child to a safe zone, get them water or a snack, have them breathe for a second, and then begin asking about their family's names. I would ask where they saw them last, what they were wearing, anything we could do to get them together faster."
Rachelle's Answer
Good answer! It sounds like you've had some training when it comes to this type of situation.
"If I saw a small child who appeared lost, I would take them to one of the Disney appointed safe zones. I would give the child water and a snack, then ask them questions about their family such as their parents' names, where they last saw them, or what they were wearing."
Was this answer helpful? Yes (1) or No (0)
Anonymous Answer
"Every company may handle this differently. I am sure that this would be addressed in pre-employment training. But, I would first try to calm the child down so that I may ask what their mother or father's name was. Then alert security or whoever would handle that situation. I would stay with the child until that help arrived."
Lauren's Answer
Perfect. You have parental instincts to assist with the situation as well and training and protocols that you will learn when accepting the position. I made minor edits, but overall this is a solid, well-rounded response!
"Every company has its policies and procedures. When a child is separated from their parent or guardian, my parental instincts will kick in. I would approach the child to help calm their fears. I would survey the area and ask the child if they know where their parent was. I would rely on the procedures in place to contact the necessary staff to assist the situation (security or other designated staff). My main priority would care for the child warmly and kindly to de-escalate the situation until their guardian is located."

What would you do if you saw an unfamiliar person in Walt Disney World uniform with no ID badge?

It is absolutely okay to ask the interviewer how they would prefer these types of situations to be handled.

's Answer #1

's Answer #2
"Can you tell me a bit about your protocol surrounding a situation like this? I would follow your company protocol to a tee in situations such as this. Has this ever happened at Walt Disney World Co.?"

Lauren's Answer
Great start. I included language to include customer and employee safety as well as the brand standard.
