    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Pratt & Whitney in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by the manager and had a phone interview. Absolutely great experience. The manager knows what sort of candidate he's looking for and who'll fit the profile for the position. Didn't feel like an interview at all; more like casual conversation. Just be yourself (cliche) and apply for a position that interests you.

    Interview Details

    I saw them at a career fair and talked to a general UTC person who told me PW would be the best fit. She was very nice and helpful. Two weeks later I was contacted via email by the person who would be my supervisor if I was hired. She asked about interviewing me over the phone and we planned on a time. The phone interview was about 45 minutes long and the questions were the typical behavioral questions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Pratt & Whitney in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied before going to a conference where Pratt would be having interviews. Two days before I left to the conference I received a call to schedule the interview. I interviewed with a gentleman who would later on be my manager. The interview was partially behavioral and partially technical to see what you know. After the interview it took several weeks to receive a response. I eventually called one of the HR reps and they said it look like I "fell through the cracks" and then they fixed the issue and sent me my offer.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked a trick question about writing the equation for Energy. But even though I only got it partially right the manager was impressed.   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Pratt & Whitney in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pratt does not communicate well at all during the interview process. You will be interviewed over the phone as part of a one round interview by one of the ACE (UTC's version of Six Sigma) employees. It is crucial to have knowledge about Pratt and also to discuss the result of your previous work (i.e. how much time your project saved your previous manager, how much money you saved, and etcetera). After that round you'll be notified via e-mail within a few days (about four to six days) in regards to whether you got the position.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Pratt & Whitney in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Met Pratt at a conference and the first interview was a face to face with a Finance Manager and this is not hard. the intent is to get a feel of what your experience and background. E.g questions about your past or current job and what you do specifically. At second round of interviews, you meet 4 people from 4 areas of Finance in 4 hours. This is also to get a good idea of what you have done, expect some behavioral questions and be able to talk clearly about your experience. Giving specific examples is a plus. Certifications and Education is not as important as your experience.

    Interview Details

    I talked to a representative at a career fair at my school, and was offered an interview a few days later. A couple of weeks after, I was asked to do a second interview on site at Pratt & Whitney. They reimbursed me for travel expenses, and I got to meet with people that I would be working with if I took the job. They even took me to the customer training center and museum to see a bunch of the engines. It was a lot of fun, and not very much pressure. Everyone was very nice.
