    Application

    I applied online – 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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at World Wrestling Entertainment (Stamford, CT) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through their website and an HR person contacted me a couple of weeks later. I spoke with him on the phone a couple of times. He did ask me if I watched wrestling but didn't seem to mind when I said not recently. He kept stressing that there was A LOT of travel and wanted to make sure that I was okay with that. He kept saying, "I want you to really think about this and get back to me in a couple of days."

    We set up an in-person interview. Before the interview, I had to submit a writing sample carrying out a current storyline to completion. I went to their Stamford, CT offices and met with my HR contact and his boss. My contact gave me a tour of the office (I got to see Andre the Giant's shoes, which was kinda cool.) I had to pitch my writing sample. I got the sense that I would have also met with some of the writing staff but since it was the holidays, they were on vacation.

    Then I didn't get an answer for months and months months, which made me a bit salty. I don't mind being rejected, but I prefer it quick so I can get over it and move on. Unfortunately, I was desperate for a job so I couldn't tell them to shove it like I wanted to. lol

    Interview Questions

    • After a taping, if some of the wrestlers (he told me that normally he would say the female wrestlers but since I was a female, he flipped it to male wrestlers) asked to hang out at the bar, would I go to the bar or to the elevator (meaning: my room.)   1 Answer

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed 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
