    I have been working at Otis Elevator as a contractor for less than a year


    The people and management are friendly and professional who work together to satisfy thier customers


    In some areas the workforce is inexperienced however management is working on increasing their skills by implementing Work Instructions and better training. Even with management improvement efforts in place there are some workers who have such bad attitudes they are affecting the productivity of the team. I hate see people loose their jobs in this bad economy but if they don’t want to be there then, let them go, there are too many good unemployed people who would like the opportunity to work at company Otis Elevator.

    Senior Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Otis Elevator in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was called by Hiring Manager who conducted a phone interview. It went well and I felt confident I would get a call back. Was contacted by HR to travel to Florence for a face to face.

    Arrived in Florence and checked in. Was informed by the person that greeted me that the Engineering Manager, the person that was scheduled to start the interview was not on site. Conducted a one on one interview with the person that greeted me. It was followed up by two group interviews. Was given a tour of the production area and test site.
    I was then informed that the HR representative that was scheduled to interview me was on vacation.
    All and all the content of the interviews seemed to go fairly well with the exception of one of the interviewers who seemed to ask irrelevant questions like questioning my longevity at current company which is approximately 9 years?? Also, he didn't seem to be able to understand what I was describing technically. The other interviewer seemed to be annoyed with him.
    The interview was conducted on a Monday or Tuesday, I can't remember exactly. By Friday I received a form email that I would not be selected.

    I submitted my expenses for the trip. It took approximately 6 weeks to get reimbursed from an extremely unprofessional HR department.
    On a side note, that interview was about 3 months ago and the position is still open. I think they are very confused at the Florence location.
