    I have been working at Fortune Brands Home & Security

    Pros

    Nice, Friendly atmosphere - It is not a stuffy office. Jean Fridays :)

    Cons

    Small office in Deerfield, IL- hard to transition to when you come from a large company. However, everyone is very friendly and works together.

    Not many perks (when compared to other LARGE Fortune 500 companies). However, the work life balance will make up for that.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fortune Brands Home & Security in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started with a call from a recruiter - then after a few weeks phone screen with hiring manager. After that a face to face with hiring manager and 1 colleague as well as HR.

    Interview Questions
    • None. The hiring manager exited early to get the "HR" manager I was supposed to meet with. The person that returned was a stand-in HR person. She said the HR person I was supposed to meet with (scheduled for 1 hour) was unavailable and she could answer any questions I had. I didn't have any questions obviously for HR, they were supposed to be doing their "HR" battery of questions. So I was told I could go and they would be in touch.   View Answer
