    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stamford, CT
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at World Wrestling Entertainment (Stamford, CT) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Getting an interview with WWE was a positive in my eyes. It means that my experience level drew their attention. We set up the phone interview for same day as email requesting to interview me. Unfortunately, I was interviewed by a graduates degree level intern for the company. I don't think this is fair, as this individual would be gone for my summer internship.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at World Wrestling Entertainment.

    Interview

    Fairly simple process. I applied online and was contacted a few weeks later by HR. They were kind and could asked simple questions about my experience and knowledge of the WWE product. Being a lifelong fan, it was an easy process. I heard back from them a few weeks later, signed an offer sheet and some other paperwork, and it was done.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really unexpected. They would like for you to be knowledgable of the product, but most other interns weren't so it isn't a necessity.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    For-credit internship, so no pay/negotiation.

    Interview

    Typical behavioral interview questions, along with some about what you want to do, what you've done, where you're going. Most important is meshing well with team and people you will be working for.

    Affiliate Relations Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at World Wrestling Entertainment (Stamford, CT).

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was quick, efficient, and positive. If the company wants to hire you, they will want you to be happy and the recruiters will work to ensure that you are just that, especially if they know you are interested and likely to accept the position. Most hiring managers will want to know you are interested in the business end of things and aren't just a fan. My current manager was more interested in the business experience I brought to the table as opposed to my feelings as a fan.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were fair and expected.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Had a positive negotiation process. Actually the only positive negotiation process I have ever had a at a company.

    Creative Contractor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at World Wrestling Entertainment (Stamford, CT) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I had come recommended as I had previous experience with major league sports logos so the interview was more an ironing-out of how we would work together and what was expected as far as initial concepts, revisions and timing. Of course it was expected that I become familiar with the WWE talent and programming and they actually provided me with DVDs, which was great.

    Interview Questions

    • They were understandably pretty adamant that I watch and become familiar with the personalities.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at World Wrestling Entertainment (Stamford, CT) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I was a referral (I first learned of the position from an industry colleague). The HR staff was great. I had one phone interview and one in-person interview with the hiring manager. Another one with a senior staff member was scheduled and then canceled. They were very professional (including directions and what to do when you arrived). The best advice I could offer is to be prepared - both for their questions and with your own, to be able to learn about the company, the department, and your potential new boss. My perceptions of the people were that they were dedicated and professional. The office has great memorabilia and posters, and the work culture seemed to be a mix of 9-5ers and employees who were there all day.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at World Wrestling Entertainment (Santa Monica, CA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process is always conducted through WWE Human Resources. Usually the job postings are online but all resumes are vetted through them. They will call the top candidates (usually 3-4 depending on the position) and you will be interviewed by HR and the President before moving forward. Then, each department will interview the candidate in order to deem their expertise in the field.

    Interview Questions

    • I'm not sure that it would be a question, but WWE demands a lot of their employees. They have great benefits and competitive salary but you will have a solid work load.   Answer Question
