    Sales Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Bentonville, AR) in August 2016.

    Interview

    A very disorganized process. Received email from recruiter to schedule a phone interview, I replied to the email twice and never received a confirmation or response. I had to call the recruiter to see what was going on... It seemed this recruiter never check his invox exhaustively to see if all candidates this recruiter reached out are interested in the position. Recruiter in HQ's didn't show respect to the time schedule for the interview because it wasn't available in two occasions, so phone interview had to be rescheduled. At the time of interview recruiter was late and not organized in phone interview process. Well a total terrible experience.

    It was phone interview followed by onsite interview. I went through the recruiter. One of the directors was very rude. He asked me very stupid and non-sense questions. Please do not go there. I am sharing my experience.

    Ecommerce Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid.

    Interview

    Was supposed to speak with hiring manager but she couldn't make it, so I spoke with someone else from her team instead. That was a red flag because it's important for me to know who I could potentially be working for and assess if it is a good fit (it works both ways, you know). New interviewer was curt and made me feel like I was wasting her time and she would rather be doing something else instead. I don't know yet if I will get an offer or what the next steps are (interviewer couldn't tell me), but even if I did, I will be turning it down. NOTHING about the interview process made me want to work with this team.

    Note: Glassdoor did not have an option to show that the offer is still pending, so I just said I was given an offer but declined.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on indeed and wen through a staffing firm. The interview contain two phone interviews with the HR and hiring manger, and then four face to face interviews in the offices. The company was in the division of newell Rubbermaid. It was completely a waste of time is because they did not inform me that I needed consumer product experience in order to be considered for the position, which was NOT in the job requirement description. After I have interviewed with 5 different people around two weeks ago, I get a call from my recruiter that I went through informing me that they went with another candidate. This whole interview process was a complete waste of my time!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid.

    Interview

    First round behavioral interview followed by second/ final round site visit and interview day. Questions were pretty standard, focused on leadership, teamwork, dealing with difficult team members, etc. Interviewer was nice, but wrote down everything without looking up which was a bit weird. My favorite part was asking her questions at the end, make sure you have some prepared. We talked about her path through the company and how Newell selects brands.
