    Pros

    Good people, a small company atmosphere, with a very strong business. Its a holding company so the train of thought is slightly different than most companies, but once you understand that it is a very interesting model.

    Cons

    Because of the type of company they are their products are based off of the companies they own and operate, their model is to control the finances of these companies not direct them, so many of their processes are old, antiquated, or immature, however that is part of the charm.

    Advice to Management

    In some areas it would be nice to get into the times.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer
