    Current Employee - Production/Development in New York, NY

    I have been working at The Weinstein Company LLC as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    You are taught how to write coverage (a necessary skill in entertainment) and given other opportunities like some executive assistant duties if you are lucky. Great networking experience and opportunity to understand entertainment production/development atmosphere.

    Cons

    They do not push you. You need to be self motivated and hard working. I was initially assigned to come in two days a week, but because of my drive and had work I asked and pushed to come in 5 days a week and they were more than happy to allow me to do so and give me more work.

    Also importantly they usually don't higher from intern pool.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interns are sometimes highly capable and hard working, when you find one like that (me) allow the opportunity to learn more and take on more responsibility.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at The Weinstein Company LLC.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process to become an intern at The Weinstein Company is quite different from most internships you'll probably find out there. As a smaller privately owned company, TWC does not have an extensive human resources department that conducts a formal process to evaluate potential interns. Instead they rely heavily on word of mouth recommendations so knowing someone at the company or at a minumum, knowing someone who knows a TWC employee is key to getting hired.

    Interview Questions
    • I did not have a formal interview process to become an intern at TWC. Communication primarily took place over email and phone and I only met with future co-workers once before beginning the internship.   Answer Question

Harvey and Bob maxed out? Never! The founders of Miramax, Harvey and Bob Weinstein, left that company in 2005 when they ended their 11-year relationship with Disney Studios. Immediately after exiting Disney, giving up the name Miramax as well as its valuable film library, the brothers started The Weinstein Company and began working on the production and acquisition of projects under the new moniker. Weinstein Co. has a library of more than 100 titles (Inglourious Basterds, Blue Valentine). It also owns TV show Project Runway (airing on Lifetime) and the Dimension genre... More
