Design Engineer Interview

Design Engineer
Huntersville, NC (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in April 2014.

Interview Details Initially had applied to company through online sources. It took a head hunter to get a foot in the door. First phone interview was with and engineering manager. Next was an onsite interview with upper team members (one on one). The questions were not bad. Included was a CAD test which I did poorly on. The laptop I was small and the color scheme settings were difficult to deal with in a well lighted room. (you might want to bring calipers). The expense reimbursement was slow - took about a month.

Claims Associate Interview

Claims Associate
Goirle (Netherlands)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in January 2012.

Interview Details My interview was with the woman who became my boss. It was mostly just to make sure that I seemed like a fast learner who would be competent, capable, and get along with the team. There are the typical strengths and weaknesses questions, but they mostly seemed like a formality with the real objective being to try to get a sense of what kind of a person I was and what sort of employee I would be.

Interview Question – Which superhero would you be and why?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is no room for negotiation.

SAP Security Intern Interview

SAP Security Intern
Sandy Springs, Fulton, GA (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid.

Interview Details I was solicited with the internship during a diversity career fair at the University of Georgia by a recruiter. She emailed me the next day and I interviewed with her over the phone. This interview was very basic and behaviorally generic. A few days later, she scheduled a phone interview for me with the SAP Senior Manager from their Internal Audit department. This interview was a little less behavioral and we casually discussed my experiences and educational background with internal controls. A few days after the phone interview, I was contacted by the recruiter again for an office interview. During the office interview, I interviewed with an HR representative, the VP of Internal Audit, then again with the Senior Manager.
I was contacted a few hours later when I returned to UGA with the offer for the internship.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you worked in a group and a group member was being difficult.   Answer Question

Brand Marketing Intern Interview

Brand Marketing Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid.

Interview Details I applied through my school after hearing about the opportunity.

It was a longer process then I thought it would be (spanning over 3 months). There was the initial phone screening interview, a second phone interview, and two face-to-face interviews at their office. The face-to-face interviews were with three different people each time. This is because there were 3 different marketing intern positions.

Everyone I talked to and interviewed with are exceptional people. Smart, nice, creative, and innovative. The interview process (although I was a bit nervous) was smooth and relaxed. They made me feel welcome.

Interview Question – Basic behavioral and STAR questions.   Answer Question

Atlanta, GA (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Newell Rubbermaid in April 2014.

Interview Details My interview process started in February and consisted of 2 rounds of behavioral interviews on-campus. About 3 weeks later, I received an email to attend final round interviews. Rubbermaid had a networking event the night before the interviews at their global Atlanta Headquarters. The day of the interview started with presentations from employees. Then there was a group presentation portion where they evaluated how we work with each other and present ideas to the group and employees. The individual interviews consisted of 3 rounds and were all behavioral based. I received an offer about 2 weeks after.

Interview Question – It was all behavioral and situational. A lot of questions revolved around strengths, responsibility, and ability to take initiative.   Answer Question

Human Resources Intern Interview

Human Resources Intern
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
