    Field Service Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Eaton in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    This had to be the most unprofessional phone interview I ever had. I gave the interviewer five potential days to speak. This guy picks a day he's driving down the highway returning home from a trip. I immediately got the feeling he did not take the interview seriously. I couldn't hear him clearly due to the background noise from the car, this was just one of the worst unprofessional interview's I ever had. Didn't get a face to face interview, which was probably for the best. Really don't want to work for an unprofessional individual like that anyway.

    Interview Questions
    • Couldn't tell you. I couldn't understand a thing the guy said.   Answer Question

    I applied to a blind job posting online and was contacted by an internal recruiter a week or two later and had a 30 minute phone conversation.
