    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Pratt & Whitney.

    Interview Details

    I applied on my school's online job board and had an on-campus interview. The interview format was three recruiters taking turns asking me questions and writing on a sheet of paper, not much of a conversation. They were friendly enough, but it was very clear that they wanted to just get through their questions and move on to the next candidate. However, one of the recruiters afterwards gave me feedback on my interview performance, which was very helpful.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Pratt & Whitney.

    Interview Details

    I met the recruitors at my school's career fair. I interviewed the next day. That was in Cctober and they didn't give offers out for months. I interviewed against 3 people. They reviewed my resume. They then critiqued my interview. They were looking for passionate people that are willing to learn. The recruitors kept in touch throughout the process, but HR was slow in terms of allowing them to give out offers.

    Interview Details

    Talked to someone at the University career fair, and was able to get a brief 15 minute on-campus interview. About a month later was invited to the East Hartford site where I gave a technical presentation (topic of choice), and talked to a number of group leads -- an all day event -- to see where in the company I'd want to work/would best fit.

    Interview Questions
    • No real technical questions were really asked -- everything discussed was related to what was on my resume.   Answer Question

    Screening phone call followed by interview. It wasn't too difficult, but I had a referral. They wanted some one who was available immediately, however I was not. It was about a 45 minute interview and then a tour of the facilities.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Pratt & Whitney in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I came in contact with the company and the position through an on campus recruiting event. After leaving my resume, I was contacted for an interview. It was surprising how quickly I had been contacted for the interview. No online applicaton was completed, only through word of mouth at the career fair. I can say I was unprepared for the interview because I pursued the position more on a whim.

    Interview Questions
    • It was my first ever job interview so I was caught off guard by most questions. The questions were first just going through things on my resume. then asking me to describe a difficult experience and things of that nature.   Answer Question
