I worked at Stanley Black & Decker (More than 10 years)
Do have several benefits, opportunity to buy Stanley stuff, tools, clothes etc....which I loved!!!! There was plenty of chances for advancement
There is alot of favoritism with management and employees. Paywise - When I started over 10 yrs ago I only had 4 raises, which was a total of $5.52. Had 2 yrs of raise freeze. Training is not good as it used to be. Alot of turnover too!
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Stanley Black & Decker (New York, NY).
Day long event including two technical interviews and one with HR. the technical interviews varied- some were more conversational asking about interests related to engineering. Some questions asked about projects you've worked on and asked to walk them through the steps of how you solved the problems at the time. Some were straight forward- solve this, helps if you know about gears.
