I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in November 2013.
Interview Details – I submitted my resume on a Job board and about a month after I had a phone screening with HR. A week or two later I was contacted by the hiring manager but because of "internal changes" I was contacted again shortly after by another hiring manager, and I was then invited to an on-site interview. The interview was like any other interview with the typical "tell me about yourself" and "situation-action-result" questions. They also had a skills test at the end. In my opinion, I did okay but far from my best. I would also say that there was no "chemistry" between me and the hiring manager. They ended up not giving me an offer, and I believe it was a wise decision on their part since I had been going back and forth about withdrawing my candidacy because of the missing "chemistry". However, I want to send out a warning, because I was given a written agreement where I was promised reimbursement for my travel expenses and even though I have sent several e-mails and called them a number of times to remind them of it, I still have not after 3 months been reimbursed.
