    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in December 2011.

    Interview

    3 interviews, people nice, said all the right things, very professional, Promises made at interview did not stand up. Seemed to be an endless assault on "rolling back" compensation since the day I started. Found out after starting that the company did not walk the talk at all. Growth Game Plan came into effect and it became a miserable place to work for middle and senior people who knew what it was like to actually work for a solid, caring company. younger employees really dont know the difference here.

    Interview Questions

    I applied online – interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 5 people over 3 hours. Four were professional and nice. The fifth had an attitude walking in and I knew the conversation was DOA. I was just mad at the end of the process because HR never formally said I didn't get the position after weeks of passing.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid.

    Interview

    This process took place so long ago that I really don't remember exactly how it went. I was referred by an employee which I believe helped with getting the initial interview. It seemed like i took a little while for them to get back to me after the interview process, but they finally did and I got the job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Atlanta, GA (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had three interviewers. The first half hour was with one interviewer, and the second half hour with two. I felt comfortable talking to them and did not feel like I was being held under a microscope. They were responsive and gave me good feedback. Overall, I would say I had a successful interview and would encourage others to apply.

    Interview

    Applied in December 2014, got a "Thank you, we are not selecting you" letter in February 2015. However, they are encouraging me to keep applying. Does it really takes two months to select one for a phone screen? Don't think I want to hear from them in the future.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Newell Rubbermaid (Atlanta, GA (US)).

    Interview

    I submitted a resume' to the through the company website. I was contacted eight months latter and asked if I was still interested; to which I responded yes. I had a phone interview with HR and then was brought in and interviewed by HR, then the division CFO and finally the hiring manager. The hiring manager was uncomfortable. He interviewed me over lunch, which I paid for.

    Negotiation

    Take it or leave it, they knew I was recently downsized by my previous employer and needed the job.
