    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Eaton.

    Interview

    Behavioral-based interviewing - if you're unfamiliar with this strategy simply look it up. It's pretty straightforward. They want to know that you're a team player, that you are ethical, mature, and can handle difficult challenges professionally. "Describe a time where you had to..." etc., and you must provide a real scenario you have dealt with (no theoretical cases), with follow-up questions about the experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time where you had to make a critical decision without knowing all of the information.   Answer Question
    • Describe a time where you had to play a leadership role. How did you handle it? Follow up example: "What did your team members think about how you handled the situation?" etc.   Answer Question
