    Interview

    The hiring process was amazingly quick for a corporation this size. I submitted an online application, and then had a phone with the hiring manager. The hiring manager then asked me to come in for a face-to-face meeting. Eventually I was invited to the next round of meetings at corporate. They made a hiring decision within two weeks after that interview. The process was quick, efficient and fair.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at United Technologies in December 2014.

    Interview

    Applied on Monster. Had a phone screening interview, got passed to the next round, which was another phone interview. She asked about 8 behavior questions, it was pretty easy, and told me she was passing me through to the next round, which would be an in-person interview in Connecticut. The next day I received an e-mail from another HR person giving me an assignment that was to identify an operations challenge UTC will face in the near future (with no provided resources and without ever stepping foot in a facility), give a short term and long term solution that both utilize lean principles and use charts and graphs. This was to be done in a PowerPoint and then presented during my in-person interview. The second part of this assignment, which was sent moments later, was to read a case study and identify customer relations, supply chain, and operations issues, and give recommendations for short term and long term solutions, again, in another Powerpoint. I was given 48 hours to do these two assignments. This was a problem because this was in the midst of my finals week at Purdue in which I had 3 finals in the 48 hour span I was given to complete this assignment. I immediately e-mailed the lady back and asked for a two day extension so that I could complete my finals then have one day to complete the assignments. Twenty four hours later I had no response, so I e-mailed her again and eventually got the response "I've extended you to Friday." The assignments took about 6-7 hours total. Four days after I submitted them, I got an e-mail back saying I wasn't selected to continue to the next round, even though the person that interviewed me had already told me I was going to the next round. I got the impression they didn't like that I couldn't complete their assignment in 2 days during my finals week and expected me to put them ahead of my education. This entire process was a complete waste of my time and energy and I would not want to work for a company who displays these values. The HR department is clearly not on the same page with each other, and the e-mails I received were curt and unprofessional. I'm not sure UTC understands the steps of their own interview process.

    Panel interview and numerous phone interviews. An initial screening interview. A direct manager phone interview with structured interview questions. A honest interview with no trick questions and enjoyable. A panel structured interview was set up a few weeks later at the work location. It was difficult but open and honest.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at United Technologies.

    Interview

    I applied to the position online and a week later I was contacted over the phone to ask if I was available and interested in the position. A week later I had my first phone interview and during this phone interview I was asked again if I was available for the position, how this impacts my education, and why I liked UTC. A week later I had an on-site interview with a panel of three employees. The first half of the interview was based on my experience and all of the questions were about things on my resume. The second half of the interview was based on behavioral questions such as "explain a time when..." The interviewers were very professional, offered a lot of helpful advise and insight, and gladly answered my questions about the company and position at the end of the interview. It was a very comfortable interview and all the present staff were friendly and encouraging. Two days later I received an offer in the morning, I sent my unofficial transcript to HR that afternoon, and received my official offer that night. On a side note, all coops are conditional dependent on receiving a satisfactory transcript at the end of the semester. This means that coop students need to have a 3.0 gpa or higher the semester before starting the coop. But overall, the process took around a month from application to interview to hiring. It was a very easy but very professional process.
