I have been working at Spectrum Brands full-time (More than 5 years)
Great Leadership Team with focused goals/commitments. Competitive culture drives success and speed to market. The company is heavily focused on innovation and is willing to invest in new technologies.
Teams are very lean and employees seem to be overworked. Most teams were downsized when the economy was bad, and have not been added back as workload has increased. Lots of extra hours are necessary to complete tasks/projects.
I started with a phone interview with the hiring manager. A few long weeks later I had the chance to come in for an interview and spoke with every individual in the marketing department, I assume to make sure I was a good fit with everyone. I had to wait a few weeks after the final interview, again, it was painful having to wait when I felt the job was a great fit. They asked me a lot of questions but I never felt like they were grilling me.
