    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Honeywell.

    Interview

    Got contacted by a third-party contractor that manages initial phone screenings, which seemed a little odd, considering their website says something like only people from @honeywell.com email addresses will contact you. In any case, the screening was standard issue, but I did feel like the interviewer had to match my responses to predetermined options. For example, when I explained why I want to leave my current job, the interviewer summarized the several reasons I offered with, "so, growth opportunities?". Beyond the standard questions, I was asked to rate myself on a scale of 1 to 5 for hard and soft skills that aligned with the job description. For everything I didn't rate myself a 5 on, I was asked why.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Honeywell.

    Interview

    The first interview was a "video" interview. Essentially it is a monologue. One you log in to the portal, you are served up questions on the screen. You film an intro and can film a close, both of which you can re-record until you are happy with the response. They ask 3 questions that require manual input and 5 where you are given 30 seconds to think about your answer and then the camera starts rolling. Once you press stop, there is no re-record.

    Director - IT Security Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Honeywell.

    Interview

    Honeywell outsourced (at least in 2016/17) their recruiting process to a 3rd party vendor. 2 weeks after I applied, I got a call from this vendor to setup an initial appt. The first interview was basic HR screening, leadership/management style, etc. Nothing tough, just routine stuff.

    Then they setup a meeting with the hiring manager. It started well, but 10 minutes into the job, we both realized that THERE WAS A HUGE DISCONNECT BETWEEN THE JOB DESCRIPTION THAT WAS POSTED, THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE HIRING MANAGER AND MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE JOB THAT I THOUGHT I WANTED TO GET INTO.

    No doubt, this was the most awkward interview ever. The manager was quite apologetic, but was also in a hurry to end the interview (who wouldn't be). I never got a call back from the hiring manager or the HR vendor again, and I would have said no thank you even if they had called.

    I have been in the IT industry for 20+ years and this was the craziest interview experience ever. Hope you applicants have better luck. Maybe you should confirm with *everyone* involved to make sure everyone is on the same page w/r/t the job description, roles and responsibilities, etc. Good luck.

    Interview Questions

    • Like I said above, the actual interview questions were not related to the job description or position at all. Think of the question(s) as "How would you land a plane during a thunderstorm with one engine on fire". My answer was 'I am not a pilot, and I have no idea why you want me to answer this because I never said I was a pilot". I made sure to confirm with the interviewer if this was a trick question that was meant to evaluate my ability to think on my feet. After 2 or 3 questions like this we both realized that something was wrong with the process.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Honeywell (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    More of a meet and greet. Relaxing on some fronts with softball questions. Had lunch with manager and met future coworkers. Then talked to HR about benefits. Never met with upper management. They flew me in and had everything setup well. Lasted a full day onsite. Took several months for them to set things up after initial contact.

    Finance Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Honeywell (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Lots of behavioral questions. Probing to see how willing you are to devote your entire life to the company. God forbid you bring up money. They'll act offended - how dare you want to know how much you'd be paid! Obviously, you should work at Honeywell for free because they're so great.

    HR is a mess. They seemed to confuse me with another applicant. I was summoned to two interviews. The second was for a position that hadn't even previously been discussed (I reread the e-mails just to make sure I wasn't crazy) and the person who greeted me in the lobby seemed surprised I was there. The HR person didn't remember meeting me for the first time even though we had corresponded a bit after we met. She was diligent about replying within 24 hours until that point. When I wrote to follow up, two weeks later, I was ignored. I think she realized she made a mistake and buried my application.

    After speaking with some other people that work there, I would not recommend unless you're desperate or have never worked anywhere else. Still haven't heard, weeks later, on the position. At this point, I wouldn't accept if they offered.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Honeywell (Golden Valley, MN) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was asked to do what they call an "interview on demand." This basically consisted of recording answers to questions via a telephone call.

    A couple of weeks later, they asked me to do two phone interviews with two separate people. The first lasted about 45 minutes; the second was scheduled for a Friday afternoon, but the interviewer needed to reschedule at the last minute.

    We pushed it back to early the following week, or at least that's what I thought. The second interviewer never called me, and when I reached out to her and my HR contact, I received no response.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Honeywell (Atlanta, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    1. First a phone screen by a non-technical person who basically reads the job posting to you and asks if you have experience in that.
    2. A hacker rank with several questions about your background and experience. No iOS questions. Says it should take 30 minutes but it took me that long to just do the background questions. After that are 2 coding challenges.
    3. Technical phone screen with a very rude interviewer. The phone screen consists of answering many specific Objective-C and Swift syntax questions. The interviewer will skip to the next question if you have any hesitation in your answer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Honeywell in April 2017.

    Interview

    While the process for submitting an video phone screen was extremely easy. My experience has been disappointing. Reached out to Sourcer to follow up on status and was given a benign response ("I reached out to hiring manger and I am waiting to hear back")....It's been over 6 weeks and no update, online or via email. Recommend this process include a "close out process", especially when candidate is contacted to submit video interview. Assumption is you are not sending those to all that apply, so a follow up would be appreciative and leave a better impression of company and its processes
