    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I 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.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied in December 2014, got a "Thank you, we are not selecting you" letter in February 2015. However, they are encouraging me to keep applying. Does it really takes two months to select one for a phone screen? Don't think I want to hear from them in the future.
