    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    There were a few phone interviews with various people from the corporate office, and then from my supervisor. I also had to be drug tested (they cut a piece of my hair) and had a background check completed. It was a very thorough process, and at times it seemed like it was never going to end. I was doing phone interviews back and forth with all sorts of different people. I eventually was offered the job and accepted the position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, received phone call from HR for initial screening, set up phone interview with manager, then had vchat interview with HR director. Every person was very friendly, and considering it was my first ever interview experience, it went very smoothly! I think moreso than the skills I had to offer (which weren't many, since I applied for this internship after sophomore year and didn't have much work experience), they were looking for personality and fit.

    Interview Questions
    • It was several years ago, so I don't remember exactly, but I don't recall any odd questions. Mostly behavioral and explanation of skills/resume.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly simple. They held an info session the night before to get an insight as to what the company does and what they plan on doing. The interview was the very next day, so I was able to meet with some people who work for the company and build a relationship. The interview was just like any other interview, wanted to see what leadership I've developed, if I had good communication skills, etc etc. Overall, it was pretty laid back and the people were great!

    Interview Questions
    • Can't remember question, but it was on the lines of "innovation" and "leadership." Basically, give an example of how you took a role of leadership and highlight how you were innovative about the decisions you had to make.   Answer Question
