Every company has a different process when it comes to job applications, interviews, and hiring. We try to be very straightforward with ours. Check out this slideshow outlining what our hiring process is like or read our complete list of frequently asked questions. Here are just a few common questions about our application process:

I know someone that works for you. Should I put them down as a referral when applying?

Please do. We encourage our current employees to refer people that would be an asset to Spectrum Brands. Be sure to let us know they have referred you through the “source” drop down on the application.

The application asks for a current salary. How should I answer this?

This will be asked during the interview process and confirmed during a background check after an offer is extended so it is important that you answer honestly.

Do I need to create a new profile each time I apply for a job?

No, if you apply through our website you will be asked to create a profile that includes a username and password. This will save your personal information in our system for future use.
