    I have been working at Fortune Brands Home & Security full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Consistent financial results, solid growth plan, smart and talented associates, great brands, high performance culture. Small corporate office with ability to work across the divisions/countrie and establish wide-reaching relationships. Always interesting and fun to tackle new challenges. As a growth company, there is a lot of opportunity ahead and optimism amongst the people.

    Cons

    Still a young company that is evolving. De-centralized structure (siloes) sometimes complicates getting information and finding the right contacts-- but it's been getting better each year.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on mobility and career growth opportunities across the organization. Keep growing and acquiring new companies to add to our comptitive advantages.

    Manager - Network Operations Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fortune Brands Home & Security (Deerfield, IL) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Started with a call from a recruiter - then after a few weeks phone screen with hiring manager. After that a face to face with hiring manager and 1 colleague as well as HR.

    Interview Questions

    • None. The hiring manager exited early to get the "HR" manager I was supposed to meet with. The person that returned was a stand-in HR person. She said the HR person I was supposed to meet with (scheduled for 1 hour) was unavailable and she could answer any questions I had. I didn't have any questions obviously for HR, they were supposed to be doing their "HR" battery of questions. So I was told I could go and they would be in touch.   1 Answer
