Industrial Relations Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at United Technologies.

Interview Details – Handed in my resume at my school's career fair and got a one-on-one interview with the recruiter. She contacted me about a month later and arranged second round phone interviews with HR and IR managers at UTC's subsidaries. All interviews were approximately 30 minutes. The questions were mostly behavioral, but there were also a few situational questions.

Interview Question – Three strengths and three weaknesses   Answer Question

Financial Leadership Program Interview

Financial Leadership Program
Farmington, CT

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at United Technologies in August 2013.

Interview Details – The Financial Leadership Program interview process is a "super day". It is a four hour interview process where you have two hour-long interviews with two finance managers in the company. The interviewers are not well prepared. The interview process needs work. It is hit or miss with the interviewers. They also have FLP's help set-up the event. The FLP's are the superstars in their class, very kind and welcoming. The FLP's will keep you calm throughout the process.

Interview Question – They ask questions about your: analytical thinking, business judgement, and teamwork skills.

-Walk me through a situation/project that best exemplifies your analytical skills. What abilities did you utilize?

Difficult Interview

Electronic Design Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Syracuse, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at United Technologies in February 2013.

Interview Details – Applied to the posting through their website and received an email asking for a phone interview 3 days later. Did the phone interview and one week later was offered an on site interview. The on site interview was in Syracuse NY and was fully paid for by the company. Interview was extremely technical and the interviewers showed me electrical schematics and asked what certain components were doing based on the specific setup of the schematic. Interviews lasted all day starting from 8am until 3pm. Day full of interviews with a lunch and work site tour budged into the itenieary. From point of applying to job until on site interview took about a month. 3wks later and I'm still waiting on their decision. Extremely long process.

Interview Question – Basically alll technical questions: What is the purpose of this micro controller and what does each pins function?   Answer Question

FLP Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Hartford, CT

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at United Technologies in November 2012.

Interview Details – Applied through career services and was selected for an on campus interview. Standard interview asking to go through my resume and talk about experiences in groups. 3 weeks later I received a call inviting me to their second round at HQ. They reimbursed for travel expenses (though I still haven't gotten the check (6 weeks later) and paid for a room. 2nd interview was all day and included a tour at one of their facilities. There were 2 separate interviews which were with either one or two different interviewers. They said they needed 2-3 weeks before a decision would be made. After 3 weeks I hadn't heard so I followed up and was told they needed another couple of weeks. 3 weeks later i received an email saying I didn't get the job. Interview process was great until they took 6 weeks to give me a decision and after 6 weeks they haven't reimbursed expenses as promised.

Interview Question – Nothing too difficult--mostly behavioral questions.   Answer Question

Treasury Administrator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Hartford, CT

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at United Technologies in November 2011.

Interview Details – Treasury Manager and Assistant Manager were in room. They looked at my Resume, and Cover Letters, and they asked me about my background including education and previous job history. It wasnt a formal interview at all. It was really easy, I was expecting it much deeper and in detail, but I felt like it was more of an informal interview where we exchanged our background and what they are looking for. At the end they said they will let contact me if they would need me.

Operations Leadership Program Associate Interview

Operations Leadership Program Associate
Farmington, CT

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at United Technologies in December 2010.

Interview Details – I initially applied to this program through their online portal at the end of November 2010. The first contact was initiated by UTC, who asked for a 5 slide power point describing an operations challenge that could potentially impact UTC's business. After I passed that in, (they only gave us two days to do it) I received a call the next day to schedule a phone interview. The interview was straight forward, questions like "why should we hire you", "Draw some connections between your experience and leadership", "what is your definition of a good leader", "what are your strengths", "what are your weaknesses"..Very typical behavioral questions for which you can easily prepare.
