    Comprehensive all day interview, get to meet entire management team in one day. Received decision within 3 business days. Young and enthusiastic management team.

    Same set of questions being were asked by every interviewer, redundant and tiring to answer after a while.

    Pros

    Eaton is a consistent, stable company in which to be employed.

    Cons

    Eaton has little or no room for an individual to have an outside personal lifestyle. The long hours of working seven straight days with no time off is a killer on one's personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Eaton needs to have more of a sense of family time awareness and allow their employees the right to obtain a balance in their lifestyle where they can work as well as spend time with their families.
