    Pros

    I grew tremendously while at Cooper Industries (now Eaton). They had solid upper management, and were well seasoned.

    Cons

    The ALP program touted that all participants would end up in GM positions. This was not the case. Rather, most participants ended up in product management type positions.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time understanding the challenges which exist in a lean workforce. More training would also go a long way.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Cooper Industries.

    Interview

    I came in for an interview with two managers and I was hired by one. I was walked through the facility to show the nature of the business and hired on the spot after answering a few manufacturing related questions. I was offered a very good salary and the Director of Manufacturing Engineering was an excellent person to work for. He was very knowledgeable and friendly.

    Negotiation

    I was offered a good enough salary that I did not need to negotiate. It exceeded my expectations and the former employer's salary by a long shot.
