I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Huntersville, NC) in April 2014.
Initially had applied to company through online sources. It took a head hunter to get a foot in the door. First phone interview was with and engineering manager. Next was an onsite interview with upper team members (one on one). The questions were not bad. Included was a CAD test which I did poorly on. The laptop I was small and the color scheme settings were difficult to deal with in a well lighted room. (you might want to bring calipers). The expense reimbursement was slow - took about a month.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Atlanta, GA) in April 2014.
First, I went through a phone interview with someone from HR. It was pretty simple and quick. A couple weeks later, I received an email to the office for an interview. The night before we all had dinner at Maggianos. There were about 50 of us students. The next morning we went through about 3 rounds of interviews. The total process took about 6 hours. I can't remember most of the questions anymore, but they were standard questions.

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