- Applicants who make the cut will be contacted for a phone interview. If the phone interview goes well the applicant proceeds to the three-day interview process. Here’s what that process consists of:
Day One: There will be a mixer with finalists and executives. When the night is over executives will discuss their perception of the finalists individually. They will be asking questions like; did he or she treat everyone at the mixer with respect? Can he or she work on a staff? Could he or she function within a writing room?
Day Two: ABC Disney Executives will interview finalists individually.
Day Three: Mostly panel sessions consisting of producers from different shows who will ask further questions of finalists.
