Procurement Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at Honeywell

Interview Details – Honeywell will first do a phone screen, then if you are brought in for a face to face expect 'STAR' questions. Sometimes a panel interview, sometimes several 1:1 interviews, and sometimes they will fly you in and you only meet 1 or two people. I was a hiring person at Honeywell, a hiring manager.

Interview Question – Tell us about a time when you had to deliver bad news to a superior.   View Answer

Product Engineer II Interview

Anonymous Employee
Glendale, AZ

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Honeywell in October 2011.

Interview Details – As with most big companies, the paperwork (cover letter & resume) review is handled electronically, by a 3rd party employment agency. So make sure you place in "key words" and address the employment ad directly to make sure you get through the filter.

I was then contacted by my would-be manager directly to schedule my phone interview. The phone interview was with 3 people: 2 managers and staff engineer all of whom I would be working with. All interviewers were technical (i.e. no HR). Few days after I was asked to fly down for an onsite interview and tour where I was interviewed face to face with the 3 whom I interviewed with over phone. Nothing was particularly unique or unexpected about the interview process itself. The questions were focused more on my relevant experiences and my motivation.

The notice of acceptance does come very late so don't be too let down if you don't hear back in the next day; they do need to get through all the candidates before deciding. The on-board process was extremely slow though (partly because of my relocation internationally).

Interview Question – None, all questions were fairly standard.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Completely over email. Handled by 3rd party employment.
I was asked for "desired salary range" and was given a proposal immediately after. I did not negotiate the salary further (it was slightly lower than the center of my proposed salary range).

Senior Systems Engineer Interview

Senior Systems Engineer
Albuquerque, NM

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Honeywell in January 2009.

Interview Details – Interview process with Honeywell is straight forward. They have a canned set of questions to ask in attempts at keeping the hiring process equal between candidates. The interviews are rather dry so it is up to the interviewee to ask intelligent questions about the given group your going into. Note that industry standard job titles can have slightly different expectations once you are in the group.

Interview Question – Questions are all straight forward, just be your self.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation with Honeywell. Take what you get.
