Interview Details –
They collected my resume at my schools career fair, about a month later I got an email request for phone interview. Phone interview was with an engineer manager, going over resume and basic job-fit questions. A week later I got invited to second round interviews. Eaton paid for flight, hotel, and food.
The second interview was with 2 different engineer managers, then about a 10 minute presentation in front of 3 engineering types and 1 HR. Everyone was friendly, they asked a few questions after the presentation. The interviews were all STAR questions, very little technical.
Verbal offer 1 week later, written 2 weeks after that. The company left a very good taste in my mouth after spending the day interviewing, not as unrealistically optimistic as some.

Interview Details – I applied through online and I was called for a phone screeing in a couple of weeks. The phone interview was cool asked about resume details and told about the position requirements. After one week I was asked to shcedule for the 2nd phone interview with the hiring manager(assistant Quality manager) and HR manager. The second interview was more of technical questions and HR related questions. The following week I was invited for in person interview. The persons from pre scheduled interview plan were changed. They were supposed to take me for the plant tour at first, but due to the inavailability of safety shoes for my size, I was taken after the interviews. The first round of interview started with two experienced persons(both were quality analysts) and second round with three persons (Assistant Quality manager, engineering manager, & associate engineer). The interview was STAR based and chain of questions. They were very specific in answer. Medium tough.

Interview Details –
I applied on their website and got contacted for a phone interview later that week. The next week, I had an interview at their facility with members of the team, my future manager, and HR. Part of this process was a 20 minute presentation where I covered my educational background, career ambitions, project experiences, etc. This was followed by some technical questions about my project I presented on.
The staff was some of the most friendly I have interviewed with. I felt less like it was an interview and more that they were trying to get to know me and see if I was a good fit for the company. Everyone was extremely helpful and quite excited to answer my questions. Overall, it was one of the more pleasant interviewing experiences I have had.

Interview Question – Why Eaton Answer Question
Reason for Declining –
1. Lack of technical interview makes you wonder how practically incompetent your coworkers will be.
2. Company seems to be hiring just about anyone. Not the ideal place if you want to be more than just a number
3. After interactions with the current employees, saw a lot of apathy. They claim to have this family culture when everyone seems disconnected from another.
I applied through college or university - interviewed at Eaton in October 2013.
Interview Details – I visited their booth at the career fair and gave the recruit my resume. About a week later I was contacted to apply online through their website. I then was invited to schedule an on campus interview. The interview was set up as two 45 minute back to back interviews. The questions were all typical behavioral questions and specific questions about my resume. I thought it was a little odd their were no technical questions, but it was a fairly easy interview process.

Interview Details – Dropped my resume off at my university's career fair. Got an email to schedule an on campus interview about 2 weeks later. The interview posed oddly specific behavioral questions. When I asked for clarification in their questions, they didn't give me a clear explanation of what they were trying to evaluate. I couldn't provide good answers since I had no idea what they were looking for. Overall a weird experience. Got rejected the next day.
