Cool Careers - FAQs

If a position is no longer listed on our Cool Careers site, then we are not currently accepting applications for it or the position has been filled.

After you’ve applied, we will send you an e-mail acknowledgment to confirm that your information has been received.

Our recruiters do their best to review the candidate pool for open positions in a timely manner. Due to the high volume of applicants for certain positions, it may take several weeks for the recruiter and/or hiring manager to complete this process. We appreciate your patience during the review process!

If you are selected for an interview, a recruiter will contact you directly to outline the next steps in the process.

If you are not selected to move forward in the process, you will be notified. We may still contact you about other opportunities in the future that align with your profile or interests. You can also update the information in your Cool Careers profile at any time!

We have an in-depth, multi-level hiring process that begins with an application via our Cool Careers page. The recruitment team reviews all resumes and forwards those that meet the minimum stated job requirements to the appropriate hiring manager for further review. Once a determination has been made, candidates will be notified whether or not they have been selected for interview (typically within a few weeks of application).

Please note that email communication is transmitted via an applicant tracking system, and often email services recognize these emails as spam or junk. Please be sure to check your spam folder.

Once you apply via our Cool Careers page, you will receive an automated email response confirming receipt of your application. Within a few weeks of submission, you will either be contacted for interview or receive an update from the HR team notifying you of your status.

Your application will either be noted as “Received Submission” (confirming receipt of your resume/information) or, “Under Review” (indicating that your information is either being reviewed by a recruiter or, has been sent forward to a hiring team). Please note that depending on the volume of applicants for a given position, your profile may be listed as “Under Review” for an extended period of time. However, once a decision has been made, you will receive a notification from the HR team either requesting an interview or, indicating that another group of candidates has been selected.

We appreciate your enthusiasm to speak with a teammate about careers with WWP; however, due to the high volume of such requests, we currently do not have the capacity to do so.  Please submit your application via our Cool Careers page and a representative from our team will be in touch should an interview be requested.

If you are contacted by the HR team for an interview, this information will be discussed during the initial conversation with your designated recruiter.
