Steve Madden Is 'Hiring'

The footwear company gets a featured spot on MTV’s new reality show.

Steve Madden has enlisted the help of MTV to find the newest member of his design team.

On the cable network’s new show, “Hired,” which aired Tuesday, Madden chose between five recent graduate contestants, each vying for a position at Steven Madden Ltd.

The candidates each met with a recruiter, who provided suggestions and tips, before they met with Madden himself for an interview. The final round included an additional interview and hands-on activities at the Long Island City, N.Y.-based headquarters.

"Working on this show was really fun.  I've always had a passion for discovering talent, and I'm glad to provide viewers and fans with an inside look into Steve Madden."
