- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid.
I applied online via the Newell-Rubbermaid website. I got a call about a week later from the HR person to "discuss the role further," code for phone interview. The interview went well, no tough questions just a run through of my resume. I was told my resume would be forwarded to the group leader, and if she liked it they'd be in touch to set up an in person interview for the following week. Next week comes and goes but no email, I decided I would email the HR person to ask if I was still being considered, and to at least show that I was still interested. No response, which I found a bit rude being that the HR person was quick to reply when setting things up. I understand they can't follow up to everyone, but a system generated email would have been much better than silence. Kind of surprised by such a large household name company.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.
Employee recommendation. Phone screen w/ recruiter. In-person interview. Asked about background (leading, running, contributing to the specific topic/role). Very interested in both business and technology... until they changed the rules TWICE during the process. Went silent for long periods of time (2-3 week clips). Finally decided to do a carbon-copy replacement of technical director with another technical director with deep expertise in SAP. Basically it's cattle-herding and responding to technical support needs - not the way the job was positioned or sold to me.

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

I applied online. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid.
Interviewed with 5 people over 3 hours. Four were professional and nice. The fifth had an attitude walking in and I knew the conversation was DOA. I was just mad at the end of the process because HR never formally said I didn't get the position after weeks of passing.

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (East Longmeadow, MA) in April 2015.
It was very good at first but then after the interviews and background and drug test I never heard from them again I was very shocked that they didn't have the decency to contact me. This was more then likely to be my dream job I'm not happy not is family it cost me my life and relationship

I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.
The interview was straightforward, intense and long. The interview was with several people, the HR process was adequate in returning the follow-up information for next steps. The people were very nice and cordial during the process. I was in front of a lot of people and questions became similar from each person asking questions. This made it feel like people are alike in their thinking, creating a culture to learn.
