    Human Resources Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Atlantic Records in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for two positions at Warner Music Group and received a call from a very nice man to discuss which position would be best suited for my future career goals. After having the phone interview, I set up an in person interview with Atlantic records. The day of my interview I came off of the elevator and there was reggae music playing. I came to meet the receptionist and he had on a Kente cloth Dashiki on. I thought this was the coolest place to work. It was so relaxing and down to earth. I waited for less than 2 minutes and was greeted by my interviewer. She was very nice, laid back and very honest with me. This was the most comfortable interview I have ever had and I enjoyed every part of it. I learned a lot about the company and the position.

    Interview Details

    I applied via my school's website, and got a phone call a few days later. The phone interview was very basic, just a few simple questions about myself and my interests. I was given an interview in NYC the next week, where I met with two interns. They asked me general HR questions and then passed me along to their boss. It was mostly just a conversation

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Atlantic Records in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was relatively casual. Received a call from someone in HR and did a brief 5 minute phone interview. They ask you the departments you would be interested in working for then forward on your resume to the coordinators in those departments. The coordinator then emailed me to set up an in-person interview at headquarters in New York.

    They asked most basic interview questions, but it was much more conversational than interview like. The mood was very relaxed and the position was offered to me on the spot.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Atlantic Records.

    Interview Details

    Finding open positions at the company was nearly impossible until I stumbled upon their hiring website (which is unadvertised and almost hidden, I assume because of the amount of applications they receive). The questionnaire was quite detailed and took between a half hour to an hour to complete. After that I had two phone interviews and was notified within about two weeks of my last interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were actually quite simple. There was nothing out of the ordinary and every question was specific to either my history, or why I was interested in the company (more specifically that department).   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Atlantic Records.

    Interview Details

    I was lucky enough to have a connection in the company that passed my resume along for me - I don't think I would have been invited for an interview without that. Once inside every single person I met was warm and friendly. I interviewed with two different people, both very eager to get to know me and talk me through the position. All in all they kept me for over an hour. The interview were fairly casual and evolved into seemingly friendly conversations about the music business at large.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Atlantic Records.

    Interview Details

    You need to be an intern to have a shot to work here. Even then, maybe 1/200 will be picked to work full time if the timing is right. If you get an interview, it really hinges on whether or not the people in the department you're interviewing for like you...they churn through thousands of applicants, so make an impression.

    Digital Marketing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Atlantic Records in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    They were looking for fall interns and I faxed and emailed my resume and cover letter to the HR office. There's an initial phone screening, and then if they still like you, there's an in-person interview. I was offered the position within 2 weeks, but didn't start working until 2 weeks after that. Also, I was interviewed 1:1 but only because my interview time couldn't fit in with the others' schedules. So technically I should have been interviewed by more than one person.

    Interview Questions
    • Just your standard interview questions like tell me about yourself, why should we hire you, what kind of music do you like, etc. They asked some basic info about the company in general as well.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    None. Only subway travel stipend at the end of the internship.
