    Interview

    I applied for the Senior account executive position, recruiters calls me gushing about my resume. We get to talking and I give them my requirements knowing there's a number in my head I'll compromise with. Well I talk to my potential manager, then he has me to talk to his boss who tells me the actual position I applied for wasn't actually available and they posted it to get applicants in the door.....recruiter calls me and tells me offer is ready to be made, I think great! Well the offer was really low, not sure how anyone could live off of that salary. They said they were fighting to get more by kept pushing me to sign offer letter. I will not sign an offer without a firm offer. Never heard back from them!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Tyco (Westminster, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and had two phone interviews (with HR rep and hiring manager) before being called for an on site interview. Had several 1:1 interviews with the hiring manager and various other engineers. I talked to them in depth about several projects I was involved in and they showed me designs that their group worked on and how they tackled the issues and this was very interesting. They were easy going people but at the same I had to work hard to convince them that I'd be a right fit for their team.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Tyco (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    No good questions. Not challenging. Didn't do their homework. I was a shoe in for the job. They had decided before I arrived I was the man. I had more education than any other manager and people were threatened by it. My young age was an issue early

    Billing Coordinator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Tyco in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. The staffing agency has been horrendous throughout this entire process, kudos to Tyco for sticking with me. The interviewer didn't really ask a question, she just explained the position for an hour. The position is very overwhelming, but the interviewer explained it very well. She only asked very generic predictable questions, and even when I tried to answer she steamrolled me and went back into describing the position's duties.

    Met with them three times, increasing in people and length in time. Was told after the fact that I was the "Cadillac Option" and was demanding too high of a salary. Waste of time.
