If you want to be an american this is the place for you
Human Resources Leader (Former Employee), Calgary, ABAugust 2, 2013
Pros: lots of education
Cons: everything else
Long hours and then if the work is still not done, more hours are required.
Management is not supportive of family life and family issues. If family gets in the way of work that is just too bad.

Assembly Line Production Worker (Former Employee), Maryville, TNNovember 24, 2014
Pros: frequent breaks, great pay
Cons: micro-management
During my employment at Newell Rubbermaid, the hardest part of working in the factory during the summer was the heat. Of course the plant was hot due to the machines, and having to wear the safety equipment meant for our jobs- however, the management did their best to ensure worker safety. They would make sure employees had ample water, frequent cool-down – more... breaks, and on the hottest days, they would bring in industrial fans to create an indoor-breeze. – less

Great brands but culture is declining fast
Sr. Manager Distribution & Transportation (Former Employee), VariousNovember 5, 2014
Pros: peers are amazing to work with
Cons: work life balance & advancement opportunities.
I worked for Newell Rubbermaid nearly 10 years. The people that work there are amazing and what I would consider family. Unfortunately advancement opportunities have decreased dramatically over the passed few years as positions have been eliminated. Recent announcements indicate there is even more to come. They strive to create a "I want to work here – more... culture" but unfortunately the job eliminations have placed an immense pressure on remaining employees as their workload has now doubled. Great brands in which I will always use. – less

A lot of turnover
Research and Development (Current Employee), Huntersville, NCOctober 18, 2014
I started during a time when there were a lot of shifts going on within the company. A lot of people had been let go and a lot of people were still leaving due to not feeling secure. From what I have heard (and was able to see), this was a common thing within the company. A lot of turnover. There was also an underlying negativity and anger towards having – more... to deal with all of the new people that had filled the positions after the layoffs, which isn't the best experience when you are one of those new people. A lot of people talking about looking for other jobs and taking interviews constantly around the workplace. Just an odd environment overall.

The company does a good job with offering training for employees which was great. HR also does a nice job of trying to boost morale around the workplace through putting on campus events and having giveaways (company products and concert tickets).

It could be a great company, but the culture and the environment are holding it back. – less

Assembler (Former Employee), Winchester, VAOctober 16, 2014
Typical day would start off at 5 am we would clock in and had to the floor to receive our assignment and work station for the day. We would learn how to assemble all different types of brooms, mops, deck brushes etc. The hardest part of the job was the early start with the little 15 minute breaks in between but the best part of the job would have to – more... be every Wednesday they would have chik-fil-a come for lunch. – less

Inspector/Packager (Former Employee), Maryville, TNOctober 13, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Cons: very hot in the summer
I loved working at Newell Rubbermaid, although it could get extremely hot in the plant, I loved the people I worked with, and enjoyed doing the work that I performed. I would still be working at Rubbermaid, if they hadn't closed down the plant.
