It is no wonder, then, that we seek out the most talented individuals in our industry, attracting those with a passion for what they do and desire to achieve great things. Each a professional who mirrors our values of hard work and commitment while adding their own uniqueness to the many brands that comprise our company.

1883

1883. That is the year that the company now known as Wolverine Worldwide, Inc. was founded on one man's belief that great things were possible. Today, more than 130 years later, we know great things are not only simply possible, they are achievable when dedication and determination lead the way.

undefinedSince then, our unprecedented journey has produced a diverse business model that spans approximately 200 countries and territories around the world and embraces 14 owned and licensed brands with millions of loyal customers. 

While much has changed over the years, a few things have remained constant – our passion for the people who wear our brands, our relentless pursuit of innovative ideas and products, and our mindset focused on growth.

We invite you to get to know our products, our people, and the company that has been making big strides and doing great things since 1883!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Wolverine Worldwide.

    Interview

    They contacted me to schedule a phone interview on a Friday at 6am. Asking specifically for me to choose three times I am available, I said anytime that Friday before 1:30, gave a weekend time that was also flexible and Tuesday during my lunch hour at my other job. He responded that none of those worked for him and if I could do it at 7am on Tuesday, this is right around the end of my commute normally so I figured it would work if I get up 30minutes earlier and agreed. That morning he sends me a calendar invite to the same time the next day, so I agree again. He then never calls.

    I feel like I dodged a bullet here as I am a very punctual and organized person and could never enjoy working for a company that has such a frivolous disregard and disrespect for the time of others.
