    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Eaton Aerospace.

    Interview Details

    Uses behavior based questions and a full team.
    Long interview process with at least 6 different managers.
    Be prepared to give specific examples of past performance and situations.
    Very thorough when it comes to history and the process used to solve problems. They don't do a personality test, or any form of numerical assessment either. All of it consists of question and response. Most interview teams consisted of 2 people, but occasionally it was only 1 person.

    Assembly and Test Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Eaton Aerospace in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and one day later I received a invite for a onsite interview. I took a unpaid day off from my present job and made a 4 hour drive both ways to attend. The interview was two hours long, 1HR with a HR manager and 1HR with a production manager. Doing the course of the whole process not a single technical question concerning the job I had applied for was asked of me.

    The interview consisted 100% of behavior questions. Be warned that if you don't give satisfactory responses with entertaining personal examples than you have just essentially wasted the time and resources you invested to attend the interview because you will not get the job. The only break in the behavior question came when I was asked if I could work 7 days a week for 10-12HRs routinely if required which I responded by saying I could do 10-12HRs weekdays but I couldn't work weekends. For your reference the company has two shifts 5:30am-2:30pm and 1pm-10pm with mandatory OT if needed.

    This company has no respect people and the time and effort it takes for them just to make the interview, I was not even out the door when the HR manager said she needed to talk to the production manager who just interviewed me about other candidates why I was still standing there, inhumanly callous.

    I have never had a interview in which the actual job itself was not the subject. If you are able to tell entertaining stories than you might have a chance otherwise just being competent and able to actual perform the job will get you dismissed.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Eaton Aerospace.

    Interview Details

    They asked different STAR type questions, if you don't know the acronym I highly suggest researching it, basically given a scenario or situation tell how you've been in a similar one and then walk through how you accomplished "it." I had two separate 30 min. interviews back to back. Very nice interviewers and the company is wonderful.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard. Began with phone screen from HR, then a phone screen with the hiring manager (since I was out of state). Then I was brought on-site for a full day of interviews. Nine separate interviews, two of which were panels. Interview questions focused on demonstration of character and problem solving in 'actual' experiences.
