    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid.

    Interview

    This process took place so long ago that I really don't remember exactly how it went. I was referred by an employee which I believe helped with getting the initial interview. It seemed like i took a little while for them to get back to me after the interview process, but they finally did and I got the job.

    Sales Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied in December 2014, got a "Thank you, we are not selecting you" letter in February 2015. However, they are encouraging me to keep applying. Does it really takes two months to select one for a phone screen? Don't think I want to hear from them in the future.

    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in January 2015.

    Interview

    In-person interview with two separate individuals. About 30 minutes each. Questions were very similar with both interviewers so it was difficult to come up with on-the-fly answers that were different and equally interesting. The first 30 minutes, I was just basically asked to describe my resume, qualifications, and experience. The second 30 minutes was a lot more difficult. There were a lot of questions about working on teams etc., but a lot of the questions were extremely specific in terms of what they were asking. They really wanted you to have a story about a time you dealt with a problem pertaining to whatever it was they were asking, and then explain how you overcame said problem. It was difficult coming up with enough stories based on my previous experience. I imagine a few candidates had this issue as it is an entry-level position. Overall, I really liked the position and the company, but I had already decided that location was an issue for me. They are headquartered out of Atlanta, but this particular opening was for Charlotte, NC. That being said, they did offer flexibility to transfer within 1-2 years.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you were working with someone that had different priorities than you.   Answer Question
