    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Eaton (Cleveland, OH) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Participated in a first round interview on campus. Received a response within a week inviting me to a second round interview at a company location. They gave me several dates and locations to choose from. Both the first and second round interviews were purely behavioral questions. First round interview consisted of resume walk through and 3 behavior interviews. 2nd round interview session consisted of 2 interviews. Both had 3 behavioral questions and a few small questions based on your response. Eaton arranged all travel and logistics. Overall pretty professional experience. I haven't received an offer yet.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Eaton in November 2017.

    Interview

    It was overall very pleasant with no curveballs. The recruiter I spoke with gave me some very fundamental questions about my experience and my academic performance. Then, they went on to asking 3 questions about story-based professional experiences. This was the first interview in a multiple interview process, so I was not offered a position at this point.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Eaton (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Quick and easy. Answered a few behavior based questions. Sat down in conference room with interviewers. Relaxed and straightforward. One problem with recruiter advertising a job duty requirement on job posting while the onsite interviewers were not specifically looking for that job. Miscommunication.

    Another problem was failing too disclose that their work force was unionized. Should have been more upfront about that on the job posting or other communication

    Was invited one week after I applied for an on-campus interview. This was an easy interview just talking to someone from HR while they typed on the computer the whole time.

Basic behavioral questions. Three questions for each interview, just make sure you use the STAR method and you'll be fine.
