Product & Marketing Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
New Delhi

I applied in-person and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in December 2009.

Interview Details The procedure started in very different way as compared to an Indian company for we Indian. As i have received an anonymous mail through monster.com from the recruitment group based in HK & after responding back to that mail they got back to me almost after 1month so, being an Indian i have lost the expectation for this position but still the recruitment team continue keeping me positive for this position as my direct manager must have given positive feedback for my profile. You wont believe that the entire procedure from starting till closure have taken almost 6 months. Quite a lengthy procedure i swear but still I am happy to be a apart of this fortune 500 Inc of USA.

Interview Question – Question were more specific to my experience into the industry so far as well as on the business specific like what kind of business have i handled so far & how many persons team am i capable to handle etc etc.   Answer Question

Human Resources Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
East Longmeadow, MA (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in March 2013.

Interview Details Applied through campus recruiting, heard back about a month after. Asked to do a phone interview with a campus relations member in Georgia even though the internship was in MA. Interview consisted of a background screen and a description of the position. At the end of the interview they told me I was a great candidate and asked me to do a second interview with the HR Leader I would be working with. That second interview lasted about 35-40 minutes and consisted of typical behavioral questions, at the end of the interview they said I was a good fit and asked me to come in for an two hour in person interview. Before I hung up they said they would contact me to schedule it, but they failed to do so. I waited a week and then initiated my availability to which they finally replied that they would get back to me. A few days later they emailed me back and said the HR intern position was put on hold indefinitely, and I would not be moving forward in the recruitment process.

Interview Question – Explain a situation where you didn't think you would gain anything from doing something, but ended up gaining a lot in the end.   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Design Engineer Interview

Design Engineer
Charlotte, NC (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in November 2013.

Interview Details I submitted my resume on a Job board and about a month after I had a phone screening with HR. A week or two later I was contacted by the hiring manager but because of "internal changes" I was contacted again shortly after by another hiring manager, and I was then invited to an on-site interview. The interview was like any other interview with the typical "tell me about yourself" and "situation-action-result" questions. They also had a skills test at the end. In my opinion, I did okay but far from my best. I would also say that there was no "chemistry" between me and the hiring manager. They ended up not giving me an offer, and I believe it was a wise decision on their part since I had been going back and forth about withdrawing my candidacy because of the missing "chemistry". However, I want to send out a warning, because I was given a written agreement where I was promised reimbursement for my travel expenses and even though I have sent several e-mails and called them a number of times to remind them of it, I still have not after 3 months been reimbursed.

Interview Question – No questions were difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question
