Frequently Asked Questions

Given the short length of our six month rotations, there is a steep learning curve and a relatively small window to make a meaningful impact.  This requires professionals with a reasonable amount of experience (five to eight years). Exact years of experience are flexible depending on the relevance and quality of the work.

Due to the nature of the rotation projects, participants are most successful if they have a combined expertise in both engineering and management, whether that be obtained through education or work experience.  All projects are technology-based, so all candidates will have to demonstrate technological savvy.

Disney’s various business segments work differently and have a history of their own. There is diversity in technology as well as work culture. The rotation program provides an opportunity to learn and experience the different business segments, gain a better understanding of how the company works as a whole, and develop into a multifaceted leader who can help influence the future of the company.

Participants can apply to any openings inside The Walt Disney Company based on the skills they developed during their rotations, as well as the contacts they created while working in various business segments. Additionally, in their final rotation, participants will meet with members of the Talent Acquisition/Recruiting team to discuss interests and potential opportunities.
