    An initial phone screening was scheduled followed by two separate in person interviews. The first was with two people, one of which was the hiring manager.

    Global Sourcing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Atlanta, GA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward. Apply online, a recruiter calls you and gets to know you and your experience. You can ask the recruiter for the salary range but it sometimes can NOT be accurate and the HR hiring manager will put a different salary number on your offer letter. Its a little unprofessional but that's the way the world works theses days. The best talent for the lowest bid.

    Once you have made it past the recruiter, you will speak with the HR hiring manager and the department manager you could potentially be working for. If you make it past that, you will speak with some leaders from the department and also the director of the department if they have time on their calendar to speak with you. This can be in person, over the phone or a Skype Video conference.

    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Day long process filled with 3 one on one interviews. Offsite group dinner with employees and HR the night before.

    Because of the nature of the job and the company's culture, it was obvious that you were being scored during the sit-down/formal part of the process. This position is about brand and the 2 days were definitely an audit of your personal brand.

    Make sure to know the Newell Rubbermaid Game Plan and link that to your conversations.

    Also, the particular HR rep handling this process was not very clear in their communications about the interviews- particularly after the interview, in terms of next steps and time frames.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had to convince a person or group to see eye-to-eye with you on making a decision the way you wanted to.   Answer Question
