    Interview

    three 30 minute interviews with different people. there was a phone interview followed by the on site interviews. The process took a little while but was no bad.

    Director IT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Employee recommendation. Phone screen w/ recruiter. In-person interview. Asked about background (leading, running, contributing to the specific topic/role). Very interested in both business and technology... until they changed the rules TWICE during the process. Went silent for long periods of time (2-3 week clips). Finally decided to do a carbon-copy replacement of technical director with another technical director with deep expertise in SAP. Basically it's cattle-herding and responding to technical support needs - not the way the job was positioned or sold to me.

    Assistant Manager, CMI Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Atlanta, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Quick phone screen followed by a phone interview with my to-be supervisor, overall both were relatively easy and focused on experience and skill sets relevant to the position and company. All questions of mine were answered thoroughly and I felt like I had learned a great deal about Newell just from the interview.

    This was followed up a couple of weeks later with 4, back-to-back in person interviews that lasted roughly 30 minutes each. Everyone was friendly and I never felt intimidated, however I could sense that everyone that sat down with me was serious about what they do. Questions again focused on experiences (slightly informal behavioral interview style) and skill sets, and a bit of talk about fit with company culture.

    I was then invited about a week later to come in and take a small assessment that focused on making sure I wasn't completely lying about my qualifications (basic computer and math skills here), which was followed by a brief interview with an HR person about how I would fit with Newell.

    Within 2 weeks I received a very fair offer.

    Consumer Care Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (High Point, NC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I first met with the senior manager and human resources to determine my skills for the job. I then met with the global director to learn more of her expectations. During the interview, we discussed personality questions, my experience, my skill set, how I would grow the position, where I see myself in 5 years, how I feel about working unusual hours (due to overseas partners). The interview was very good and it allowed me to see the environment -- it is very open and the people are genuinely nice.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 5 people over 3 hours. Four were professional and nice. The fifth had an attitude walking in and I knew the conversation was DOA. I was just mad at the end of the process because HR never formally said I didn't get the position after weeks of passing.
