I had an initial phone interview that lasted about 40 minutes and it was mostly behavioral. I was interviewed by two engineers and they were friendly. Unfortunately, they did not get back to me.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Textron in November 2013.

Interview Details – First round phone screening. Second round was a phone interview that lasted about an hour asking basing behavioral questions (nothing too difficult)

Interview Question – Nothing was too difficult to answer, pretty basic questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Textron requires their employees to relocate quite often. I had another offer that allowed for a more permanent living situation but all in all, it seemed like a great company to work for.

Finance New Graduate Textron Systems Interview

Finance New Graduate Textron Systems
New Orleans, LA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Textron in November 2013.

Interview Details – On Campus interview, got a phone call after submitting my resume a few weeks earlier and set up an interview two days later. I was interviewed by 2 people in from the LA office. I prepared for the "Walk me through your resume", "Why Textron" ,"Difficult situation", and "What makes you an outstanding candidate?" type of behavioral questions. I also studied the company's history and the Systems division. Sort of strange when I walked in, one interviewer was significantly more active and one was hard to connect with.

Interview Question – The questions I found difficult or unexpected were "Tell me about a time you got the ball rolling in a situation." and "A situation where you had someone in a group who lagged (difficult member of a group)". Also there was a question like "Tell me about a time you had to learn quickly/ overcome difficulty on a project or assignment." Also something very unexpected was "I see excel on your resume, do you know any other types of software, access?"

Another question that was difficult: "A situation where things were not going your way/ you faced a roadblock, and what you did?"
