Management SUCKS!
Equipment Operator/ Dockworker (Former Employee) –  Edgerton, KsAugust 8, 2017
You get told to do one thing, but after you complete it, you get in trouble for doing what you were asked. I would NOT recommend to anyone!
They will let you go after 90 days.
Pros
Pays alright
Cons
Management is incompetent.

Tense Culture, High Turnover
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Madison, WIAugust 6, 2017
Minimal opportunities for career advancement with no guidance on professional development. All business priorities focused on next quarter's sales, with very little energy devoted to long term strategy - this creates a culture that is not sustainable or fulfilling. This is evidenced by the high turnover and short tenure of new employees

Consumer Relations Representative (Former Employee) –  Blacksburg, VAAugust 4, 2017
A typical day started with checking/ returning voicemail and reviewing website emails. This was followed by being on call while handling any other tasks necessary such as reading mail or returning consumer or colleague email. I learned a lot about record keeping and data entry. I also learned a lot about multitasking and time management as it was imperative to perform data entry while on the phone quickly and efficiently while providing care for the consumer. I worked closely with co-workers to share information and experience to handle each individual case with care. Management was fair and kind, my performance was always met with appreciation and if needed, constructive criticism. The workplace was clean and well kept. The hardest part of the job was handling each individual case uniquely since every consumer had a unique personality. The most enjoyable part of the job was working closely with my team to ensure the best outcome for our company and our consumers.
Pros
Reasonable pay, clean and safe workplace, pleasant coworkers, helping people

Depending on Departments, not a place to move up within the company.
Warranty Claims Administrator (Current Employee) –  Lake Forest, CAJuly 28, 2017
The company as a whole is great. Unfortunately the department I worked in was extremely lack luster. They'll train you on different aspects of the department, yet will never offer a raise or a promotion unless there is favoritism in play. They'll ask you to always work overtime. No matter how good your review is, they ignore it completely.

Loved working for the company, hated my department
Credit Analyst (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIMay 5, 2017
I loved working for Spectrum Brands. Very fast moving and growing company. They try to do whats right for their customer and employees however, as a rapidly expanding company there are some hiccups and bumps along the way. Overall, if HQ wasn't located in WI (brrrr!) I'd still be there.
Pros
Great cafeteria (cheap), gym onsite, lots of company events, discounted merchandise, standing desks, and career advancement
Cons
No domestic partner benefits, no stock option purchase, and very long hours and strict expectation in certain departments

Packaging Engineer Intern (Current Employee) –  Earth City, MOMay 4, 2017
A typical day consisted of working cross-functionally to support project timelines. My job was to modify and confirm packaging component specifications for U.S, European, and Asian operations and then put any information into the company's system to ensure the release of specifications. Management could use some help, everything is pretty hectic with the company expanded greatly and quickly a lot of changes are being implemented. Great culture, the company cares about you and shows it. Plenty of opportunities to get together with coworkers outside of work and bond!

Mediocre manager
Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  Mira Loma, CA 91752April 19, 2017
To much favoritism, the favorites are lazy and it causes conflict. Manager does not do nothing to improve production. Ignores big issues and picks on people he does not like.
