    The process took a while, but was generally straight forward. After applying through the careers page, I was contacted three weeks later by a recruiter. After a quick screening, I was referred told that my package would be sent to the local hiring manager. About three later, received an email for a phone interview with the Operations Manager. The phone interview was about one hour. About three weeks after that I received an email inviting me to interview at the faciltiy. This interview would take about four hours.

    Production Supervisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Eaton Aerospace (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Eaton Aerospace (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
