    The hiring and interview process was good. I had a great interview with the person who would be my supervisor. The interview was thorough. Once the job was offered and I was hired they did a background check and drug testing. Everything went smoothly and the transition was easy.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. 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.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. 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.

    SAP Security Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sandy Springs, Fulton, GA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. 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.

    Brand Marketing Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. 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.
