    Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Charlotte, NC) in November 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    Went through several interviewers in one day. First interview with two individuals for about 90 minutes, second was with one individual for about 90 minutes and the third was with 8 individuals and it lasted approx. 2 hours overall the process took 5 and half hours not including the two hour long phone interviews. One of the interviewers seemed not happy about having to hiring someone and that was difficult. The process went smoothly. I answered all questions and tests correctly, according to their HR they wanted more supervisory skills. I was not offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Put a box in front of me containing about 30 misc. components and was asked to explain what they were and how they were used. Needless to say they were impressed I knew all of them. They indicated I was the first to know them all.   Answer Question
