Our Mission

Storytelling is how we connect. And come together. It’s the way we’re able to understand people who are remarkably different from our own. Indeed, storytelling is one of the many things that bind us together.

At Warner Bros., our business and passion is storytelling, in all its different forms, and we’ve seen first-hand the power that storytellers have to change the world for the better. We believe that new perspectives and unique voices lay the foundation for all of our great stories.

Our mission is to make a positive impact on the world through initiatives that encourage youth to be storytellers, create access and opportunities for new voices, and drive sustainable production.

To put our beliefs to work and create real-world social impact, we’re working to build programs around these three core pillars:

The Next Great Storyteller

Tomorrow’s stories are already being written. Our filmmaking and storytelling programs encourage the next generation to recognize the value of their own voices.

Changing the Narrative

As entertainers and content creators, we champion new voices, experiences, and viewpoints. Our programs and partnerships provide access to opportunities in our industry.

Making Stories Sustainable

The greatest backdrop in the business is our natural environment. We weave sustainable practices into our productions to ensure the future of storytelling is preserved for generations to come.

    Photo Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Warner Bros. (Burbank, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I got the interview through a fellow college alumni who put in a recommendation. I came in and interviewed with the manager and executive assistant I would be working the most with. Both were kind and upfront about what the job pertained. They said that if offered the position I would come in on a two week trial. Overall they were easy to talk to and any nerves I felt were just general and did not pertain to to the difficulty of the interview. The process moved more like a conversation then an interrogation.
