Financial Leadership Program Interview

Financial Leadership Program
Farmington, CT

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at United Technologies in August 2013.

Interview Details – 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. The FLP's are the superstars in their class, very kind and welcoming. The FLP's will keep you calm throughout the process.

Interview Question – They ask questions about your: analytical thinking, business judgement, and teamwork skills.

IT Leadership Development Program Interview

Anonymous Employee
Hartford, CT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at United Technologies in May 2011.

Interview Details – Was referred by a current employee. Two rounds of interviews, both were panel style. They asked about my background and were interested in what I did during my internships. Asked some technical questions, I think to judge ability to communicate technical concepts. Overall it was a good experience, everyone was very nice and I felt good about the company after leaving.

Leadership Program Associate Interview

Leadership Program Associate

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at United Technologies.

Interview Details – Initial communications were sent by me to the coordinator listed on company site. I received an email shortly after requesting. I was then offered an interview, which consisted of 4 employees having a discussion with me about my resume and what I could bring to UTC. Very straightforward interview with no unexpected questions.

Note: Being a prior intern increases your chances of a hire quite a bit.

Intern Interview

Intern
Hartford, CT

I applied through college or university and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at United Technologies in March 2013.

Interview Details – The hiring and interview process tends to be extremely long at UTC. I went through three interviews that were spaced out almost one to two weeks apart, and then didn't start until about three weeks after that. This could only apply to internships. There's a lot of competition for positions at UTC, so don't expect it to be a quick process. Learn as much as you can about the company before you're interview. It will give you a great advantage and they will be very impressed.

Interview Question – "Explain a time when you had to make a difficult decision that also resulted in high risk with either outcome."   Answer Question
