    Demand Analyst - Rawlings Sporting Goods - St Louis MO Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Saint Louis, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Jarden.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, had to wait two month before hearing back from HR. Phone interview was very easy, pretty much got the one on one right away. In person interview was very easy. Met with two managers. First focused on job function and my background, second focused on long term goal and personality fit. Received an extended offer after 3 weeks of wait. HR is very slow to process. Not on top of things.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Interview Candidate in Aurora, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Jarden in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    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...."

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of "why would you be good in this position", "Why are you looking for a new opportunity" "Why do you think you would be a good fit" "what do you see being the biggest challenge coming in"   Answer Question

    International Branding Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Miami, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Jarden in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    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 Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Jarden in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.   View Answer

    Straight forward but HR is slow. Didn't tell me to start work until the Friday beforehand. Had the weekend to prepare.
