    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jarden (Fishers, IN) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Participated in a phone screen and two on-site interviews at the new building in Fishers, IN. After the second interview, I never heard back on the status of the role even though I tried to follow up several times. I find this extremely unprofessional on the part of the Human Resource Department.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Jarden (Daleville, IN) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview and hiring process was straight forward, pretty much what you would expect. I applied online and was contacted to set up a phone screening. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes. The next steps in the process included interviews with multiple Brand Managers and a few members of the senior leadership team. The entire process did take quite a while, from the initial application to the end of the process was over a month and a half.

    Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Jarden in December 2013.

    Interview

    Referred by Recruiter, Phone Screening, Hiring Manager, On-Site Interview. Communicated well what the next step would be. Approximately met their deadlines for follow-up. Screening interview was particularly well organized and executed. Interviews overall were targeted and appropriate. The on-site interview, to my surprise, was the least organized. First surprise was the length, only 5 hours (including an off-site interview) for a "cross-country" invitation. First interview was substituted at the last minute. One interviewer needed my resume to provide an introduction. The remaining three interviews were well executed and showed preparation. Although clearly the top candidate from some viewpoints, they were concerned and probed at ability to work in a new technology field.

    Global Supply Chain Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Aurora, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Jarden (Aurora, IL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter about a possible position open at Jarden Security. I was given info about the company and the people that I would be interviewing with in advance, but not very useful. I met with 3 people and after 5 minutes with the first person, I knew that I didn't want the job. They are in the process of mass changes. They don't have a MRP system, they are using an old AS400 system. They said that they might go on SAP or Oracle in the next 18 months. The two managers that I talked to had nothing nice to say with their system. Saying that it might take 4 hours to get a PO in the system. Both managers talked a lot about the culture. Talked about how the culture is very old fashion and that if people weren't going to change then they wouldn't be there very long. Matter in fact, I was told that a person who would be reporting to this roll "won't make it until Christmas." It sounds like a lot people don't know what "Ctrl+C; Ctrl+V" mean. A lot of people have the mentality of "this is how I have always done it...."

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Jarden (Miami, FL) in June 2011.

    The best way to answer questions is to be honest and direct. I did not over exaggerate my skills and when I was asked about something I did not know how to do, I told them that I do not know how, but you are willing to learn. I met with the HR representative and received the job offer the same day.

    Senior In-house Litigator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jarden (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewer was very self absorbed and was far more than interested in discussing his personal career objectives than in describing the position or in asking questions. He did not really ask questions or allow any opportunity to speak. It was a very one sided and slightly bizarre process that largely wasted my time.

    Interview Questions

    • He focused on whether or not I had used "unknown" law firms in my prior positions. This was a rather bizarre line of quesioning.   1 Answer
