    I worked at Jarden full-time (More than 5 years)


    The people doing the bulk of the work at corporate are great. The companies and brands are terrific and really diverse. Everyone generally pulls their weight, and the money was fine. Hours can get a little crazy at filing and quarter ends.


    Leadership runs the place like their personal money-mill/piggybank. If you aren't in the inner circle don't expect to be cared about. Lots of poor decisions, and plenty of voodoo economics on the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the nepotism and people will stop leaving

    Easy Interview


    The entire process was poorly executed. An external recruiter contacted me and told me I was a strong fit. They asked to put my resume in front of Jarden's hiring team. Feedback was supposed to be provided within the week. Two weeks later, after multiple emails requesting a status update, they had no direction from Jarden. Then, on Monday at 4:30 PM I was contacted and asked to drive two hours the next day for a face to face interview. They literally provided 18 hours notice. I was frustrated because I had to clear my calendar or forfeit the interview. Follow up was supposed to be provided within 48 hours of the interview for next steps. As expected, it took a full week. No offer was extended, but after this process I had reservations about working with Jarden. The interview process provides insight into how a company operates. Also, there was no offer to compensate me for gas, tolls for the trip.
