    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).

    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 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 online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Eaton.

    Interview Details

    I was reached out by HR within a few days of applying. The first interview was a phone interview and lasted about an hour or so. It was filled with some generic technical questions.

    The second interview was scheduled a week later. It was comprised of several people who all asked behavioral questions based on previous experiences. This interview lasted an an hour and a half and was fairly straight forward.

    The whole process took two weeks. They were kind enough to keep me in the loop the entire time and even let me know when they made an offer to another candidate.
