    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Eaton.

    Interview Details

    This is a 60-minute campus interview conducted by two interviewers. One interviewer followed the spreadsheet to ask basic behavioral questions and the other was in charge of making records. At the end of interview, they were open to answer questions from the interviewee. The format of the question is like "describe a situation when you have unpopular opinion". What you've learned from the experience and how you apply the skills you've learned to other things

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Eaton in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contacted through University Career Services, invited to an interview and pre-interview dinner. The interview was one on one and conducted at the same time as the interviews for the rotational program. The interviews were conducted by alumni of the school who worked in various groups in Eaton (I believe Vehicle and Electrical for us) across the country, which was nice to have non-HR people conducting the interview

    Spoke with them at career fair, applied online and heard back regarding an interview within a week. The first interview was a simple 30 minute behavioral with 3 typical STAR questions. Three weeks later-they said two-I was asked back for a second interview. This was on the phone with a manager for an hour on a Friday. Manager asked similar questions and answered any of my questions. At the end he told me I did great and hoped I got the job. I had another offer pending so I requested that I could hear back the following Tuesday, which they did thankfully.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Eaton in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Took almost 2 months for the process. It was on-campus interview for me. I interviewed 1 on 1 with 2 different recruiters in different areas of the company (neither were HR, I believe one was for the business side and the other was business/IT). Friendly interviewers. I was comfortable interviewing the whole time and prepared to ask lots of questions (went over the time in both interviews).

    Engineering Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Employee in State College, PA
    Anonymous Employee in State College, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Eaton in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the interview through a university website. The interview was on-campus, my sophomore year. It was my first interview ever, so I was quite nervous. They seemed to have about 20 students interviewing, which the engineer that interviewed me continued to remind me of. The initial interviewer was an HR female, she was quite nice and informative. She was sociable which helped me relax.

    The second part of the interview was with an electrical engineer of the company. He was short and didn't seem very interested in the interview. I felt he was not pleased with the things I was saying because he would would just shake his head and move on, which seemed to fluster me. He continued to tell me "whatever happens after the interview keep doing what you're doing and you'll find a great career" which made it obvious to me he was not interested.
