Mechanical Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Anaheim, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OTIS (Anaheim, CA) in March 2015.

Interview

I applied online and received a call from HR for a phone interview. After a successful interview, I was scheduled for an onsite interview at an organization's career fair where they had their own UTC booth. I was also invited to an UTC reception prior to the interview where I met other UTC representatives. After that initial conversation, the real interview was basically a quick talk and 'catch-up'.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OTIS (Shunyi (China)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The process was rather fast. She asked me why I wanted to work for the company while walking to the interviewing room. She also asked about availability.I felt like the interview process was more of a fast pace. I think she looked at my previous experience and thought I would be a good candidate. I still have to interview with the brand although she gave me to brand options.
