    Interview Details

    Phone interview and super day interview that consisted of two in person interviews, each with two interviewers. Not tough questions but felt like they knew who they were going to hire before interviewing everyone.

    Research Chemist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at United Technologies in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Everyone was very friendly and the interview was well run. Everything was very professional.

    The interview was for a technical position. It was pretty standard, really. I spent 30-45 minutes with around 5 different research teams. None of the questions were particularly tough, just the normal run of the mill research-oriented stuff.

    I also gave a 1 hr technical presentation to the entire team that was basically a re-hash of my PhD research (I was right out of school at the time). The audience was friendly and attentive.

    About 3 weeks after the interview, the manager gave me a call and said that hiring priorities had changed and the position I interviewed for was no longer being funded. She apologized and asked me to keep UTRC in mind in the future.

    Overall, however, it was a great experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Be able to clearly explain your research history to a room with 1-2 experts in your field and 10-12 people who are experts in some other field.

      Be able to get into nitty-gritty technical details about your research, including details about how you set up your instruments and how you analyzed your data.

      UTRC has a very broad business base - be sure you can point out ways your research can support very diverse applications.

    The Financial Leadership Program interview process is a "super day". It is a four hour interview process where you have two hour-long interviews with two finance managers in the company. The interviewers are not well prepared. The interview process needs work. It is hit or miss with the interviewers. They also have FLP's help set-up the event.
