Auxiliary Power Unit Component Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee
San Diego, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and interviewed at Hamilton Sundstrand.

Interview Details – The interview was very friendly, and I was interviewed by three people in a "round robin" type fashion by the cell manager and two Manufacturing Engineers from my future cell. They asked pointed questions that drew me into discussing my various qualifications without my feeling that I was being "grilled." Since they made me feel comfortable I was able to be myself and let my knowledge, experience, and personality sell themselves. At the end of the interview I thanked them for their time. I was hired two weeks later.

Interview Question – The question, "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" was entirely unexpected, but I replied, "Still doing my best work possible for this company."   Answer Question

Project Engineering Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and interviewed at Hamilton Sundstrand.

Interview Details – Interviewed for an intern position. Because it wasn't a full time employee, they held the interview over the phone. The project engineer was doing the majority of the talking on a telecon with about 2 other engineers in the same room as him. I was asked whether or not I knew what an APU exactly does, or the components of an APU. I did not know the details, which they didn't seem to be thrown off by. They asked me whether or not a non-technical position was fine with me. Overall not a tough interview, but the interview for full time employees are much harder.

Interview Question – Nothing too memorable.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation,

Financial Leadership Program Interview

Anonymous Employee

Interviewed at Hamilton Sundstrand

Interview Details – After two years of interning, I applied for the FLP. If your in the company already you only have to fill out two essay questions and give your resume (and maybe a few other little details). Make sure to give a good impression throughout the internship because the interviewers ask your boss about how you are and how you fit with the company. After you land an interview, you go through two interview sessions, both about 45 minutes each.

Interview Question – They ask questions about your resume, so make sure you know EVERYTHING.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, you only can accept or decline.

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Rockford, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hamilton Sundstrand.

Interview Details – It was full day interview starting from sharp at 8AM till 3:30PM. Total seven interviewer where lined up from different area. Some were just providing exposure to work environment and company benefits. They were very clear about what they can offer and made sure I am comfortable with it. Since I was confident based on my past experience and clearly stated where I need to capture some more skills that required for position, they were very happy about upfront honesty. I think we impressed each other that made hiring process very smooth.

However, some benefits such as medical/dental, 401k are not so great compare to my previous employer. No vision care benefit. So far, work environment is friendly.

Interview Question – There were some questions about handling some difficult situation in team work environment but I was able to tackle it. My listening skill helped me to come up with impromptu response to those questions.   Answer Question
