    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tyco.

    Interview Details

    You speak to the manager of the department and they go through the typical interview questions you normally would get at most interviews. They look for people who have the background to do the job you are applying to with in the company. Mine was to know about technically driven products so you would need to have a good grasp on technically driven products.
