    Assistant Manager, CMI Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Atlanta, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Quick phone screen followed by a phone interview with my to-be supervisor, overall both were relatively easy and focused on experience and skill sets relevant to the position and company. All questions of mine were answered thoroughly and I felt like I had learned a great deal about Newell just from the interview.

    This was followed up a couple of weeks later with 4, back-to-back in person interviews that lasted roughly 30 minutes each. Everyone was friendly and I never felt intimidated, however I could sense that everyone that sat down with me was serious about what they do. Questions again focused on experiences (slightly informal behavioral interview style) and skill sets, and a bit of talk about fit with company culture.

    I was then invited about a week later to come in and take a small assessment that focused on making sure I wasn't completely lying about my qualifications (basic computer and math skills here), which was followed by a brief interview with an HR person about how I would fit with Newell.

    Within 2 weeks I received a very fair offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid.

    Interview

    This process took place so long ago that I really don't remember exactly how it went. I was referred by an employee which I believe helped with getting the initial interview. It seemed like i took a little while for them to get back to me after the interview process, but they finally did and I got the job.
