I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in September 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online through my school career site. Interview Process took a few months. First round was conducted on campus with HR staff. Second round was a super-day at their Atlanta office. The questions were standard behavioral marketing questions- describe a time you worked on a team that was difficult, what is your greatest strength/weakness. Received offer over the phone a few weeks after super day.

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Atlanta, GA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in April 2013.

Interview Details – I was first contacted by a recruiter and then was screened in a phone interview by the recruiter.

Each interview was scheduled for 30 minutes, but some of the interviews ran over. I was contacted a week later with an offer from the recruiter.

Interview Question – Standard questions related to the position and my work experience.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I negotiated additional vacation. The salary was not very flexible.

Very Easy Interview

Internal Audit Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Atlanta, GA

I applied in-person - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in April 2013.

Interview Details – Talent acquisition staff are completely clueless about the role and responsibilities. They were not quick to get back to me for next steps. However, the worse part was when I actually interviewed with the Internal Audit staff. First the IT Director, just making non-sense questions asking where I was from, if I was planning to apply for citizenship, etc. I felt ver uncomfortable. Another person who interviewed me I could barely understood his questions, he spoke a very broken English which made me think how this person be employed and even more being a manager in this company. I see myself interacting on a daily basis with this kind of people and I just wanted to walk away.

Interview Question – A lot of personal questions   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I noticed a lack of professionalism and diligence from the people who interviewed me e.g. Too many personal questions, lack of speaking skills, that I would not wanted to be related with employees like that in my next job.

Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in November 2009.

Interview Details – Phone screening wtih HR -- then with Hiring manager. If you pass plan for a full day meeting with several cross functional people individually. No set interview guide just whatever the individual person wants to ask. Using STAR format is always a plus as is # for past results. no business case, no teaser, periodic behavioral again all depends on the person -- no standard. slow process.

Interview Question – when was a time you were creative.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – easy. pushed for more $$ and accepted a little lower than i asked. THey are willing to do 1 additional vacation week.

Cost Accountant Interview

Cost Accountant
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in March 2010.

Interview Details – Applied on line, six month latter received a call from the Talent Acquisition Department. After that I had a telephone interview with the hiring manager. I was subsequently called in for a series of one on one interviews. First interviewed with the CFO of the business unit, then had a lunch interview with the hiring manager and finally interviewed with the business unit H.R. manager. The company sent me an offer letter ten days latter which instructed me to please call them in response. I called and accepted the offer.

Interview Question – If you needed help from someone else, who told you, "I don't have the time or resources to help you." what would you do?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Since the economy was so poor at the time, and I was dazzled by working environment, I felt I could not afford to negotiate. In hindsight, I regret not doing so. Definitely ask for three weeks of vacation and round your salary request up to the next 10k.

ABAP Developer Interview

ABAP Developer
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in May 2008.

Interview Details – I posted my resume online at several sites. I received an e-mail invitation from Newell Rubbermaid’s IT HR to fill out an application on their site, which I did. I was contacted by the SAP Teams HR representative and was impressed by her knowledge of the position they were filling.
She set up for me to do all the interviews on the same day. I was asked to take a drug test that involved the cutting of some hair. About a week later I received an offer, I countered and we came to an agreement.

Interview Question – The questions were not hard because I prepared for them.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They would not negotiate leave time, but did negotiate salary. Telecommuting is dependent on your Director and Manager and I was informed upfront that the ABAP team is not allowed to Telecommute on a regular bases. I have been very pleased to find they were extremely honest in every thing they told me.
