    Human Resources Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at United Technologies in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    They fly you out to CT, and on the first day you attend a mixer in which you meet the people interviewing you for the program. The following day you go to a facility in which you have breakfast, and lunch bc you interview all day. The interviewers will sit at your table. Be nice and smile although it is really unclear what they are looking for. I believe it is a way to make you more nervous than you already are.

    Interview Questions
    • Behavioral based questions, why should we hire you, what will you bring to the table, they will ask you about HR things. They don't ask much about the company   Answer Question

    Financial Leadership Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Farmington, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Farmington, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at United Technologies in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was an internal applicant (having been an intern already) so I was automatically invited to the super day. There were two interviews with two interviewers each. The first I had was with two guys from Pratt who were very (read: very) casual. We joked around about college athletics and golf the entire time. The second was with two women, one of whom was playing "bad cop" and asking the tough interview questions, which after the first interview i had I wasn't prepared for. The second woman, who manages the intern program for the finance org in her BU, who I expected to ask the tough questions didn't. We talked about her life and why she likes working where she does. Nobody asked me technical questions, or anything about the company. I do know that they may have already been prejudiced to an opinion, as my supervisor and my area FLP recruiter already wrote a review as part of my application package that I am sure they read over prior to my interview. Lastly, they told all of the interns that we would hear back with a decision by mid-September. I only heard back from them on October 1st...We were starting to think it was a little rude considering now is the time we are also not putting our eggs all in one basket, so to speak.

    Financial Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at United Technologies in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had in-person interview at my University. Met with a mid-level person within their Finance area. He was not a good interviewer. He did not seem happy to be there, plus he spent the first 10 minutes of my 30 interview speaking with an old friend of his he had happened to see at my University. No technical questions, just fit questions. He was probably one of the worst interviewers I've had, just seemed very distracted throughout my time with him.
    Did not get offered for a second round interview
