Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spectrum Brands (Middleton, WI) in Feb 2022

Interview

I am very satisfied with the interview process at Spectrum Brands. There were a total of three phone call/video call rounds. I was able to talk to the people that will be part of my team, including the manager. I also talked to several people in the HR department. All of them were really friendly and welcoming, which made me feel more relaxed about the process, and get every time more excited about the job. Moreover, I got response on the next steps very fast every time, so my motivation and confidence increased.

Interview Questions
  • Give me an example of a contribution/project you ever made that you're proud of. What are some challenges you have experiences in communication? What do you expect from this job? What's your working style (individual/group work)?

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spectrum Brands

Interview

An initial interview with two members of the team and then a task with the same two members and someone more senior. After the task interview, I was asked to meet the team in person before they would formally make an offer. As I lived in the south at the time this was difficult but I made the arrangements as I was excited about the position. I found out the night before at 11:30pm that they had to rearrange. I have not heard anything from them since. Really disappointed as I put a lot of time into the task, time and money into arranging to meet the team to be ghosted and not given any constructive feedback. A real shame as the majority of the experience was positive.

Average Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spectrum Brands (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2022

Interview

CANDIDATES BEWARE: Typical interview process ie. initial interview with HR followed by a five separate interviews with other members of the organization and team. A few minutes after my last interview, I received a call from HR that they wanted to extend an offer to me. The initial offer I rejected, but then they countered with a signing bonus which I ultimately accepted. Fast forward to a week before my anticipated start date and I was notified that they had to rescind my offer due to the position being eliminated and after I had already notified my current employer of my resignation and told the other companies I was interviewing with to withdraw me from being further considered due to accepting this role. Needless to say, I am in a far worse position now than I ever would have imagined and hope anyone that considers working for Spectrum Brands keeps this scenario in the back of their mind before accepting a role with this organization.
