We give back to local and national causes that are chosen by employees and aligned with our industry and products – so with a product portfolio almost as diverse as our employee population, that’s quite a list! Just a few recipients include:
I have been working at Spectrum Brands full-time (More than 5 years)
-Trusts employees to make decisions and get the job done
-Active, energetic, vibrant environment
-“Can do” corporate culture, not a place for pessimists
-Great product lines and brands that are fun to work on
-Really good corporate discounts on company-made products, gym and cafeteria at headquarters, nice facilities and office
-Upper management seems committed to making Spectrum a good place to work
-People who work there are great to work with and knowledgeable
-Usually a good work/life balance, and the company will reward those who overwork themselves when needed
!!!-Communication & Departmentalization Problems: Employees don’t know who-does-what, or who to go to for certain types of information, employees come and go and other employees who relied upon the departing individual aren’t informed, and when new employees are hired they aren’t trained or told who they need to provide information to and when (this is also a process documentation problem) and this leads to some people doing their job without helpful or needed information, and a bunch of departments all working away on their own projects, sometimes duplicating efforts, and not communicating or knowing what others are doing. This is Spectrum Brands most frustrating problem, and the only real complaint I have.
Advice to Management
-Management seems to want to let employees work out the communication problems with tools to share processes, etc. but solving this issue is going to take some initiative and involvement from the top. Someone needs to take the time to understand what every department does, and what other department rely upon them for information or assistance to get their jobs done; then basic, flexible, undetailed processes need to be documented to ensure everyone understands what is needed, and so things don’t slip through the cracks or get forgotten about when someone leaves. There also needs to be a better tool created so employees know who to go to when they need something specific.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Spectrum Brands (Noblesville, IN) in November 2017.
Just a general phone interview, asked about my background and what I knew about Spectrum. Toward the end, the recruiter told me I was going to meet with the hiring manager next, and even gave me the manager's full name. She explained since she was travelling, she couldn't set the interview up until she returned from her trip. The next day, I received a general rejection email with no explanation. Honestly, the most unprofessional interview I've ever been a part of based on what I was told versus what actually happened.
