    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Eaton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid job security
     Salary not hourly
    Pays $3000 a year for college education
    2 weeks PTO- maternity policy is great!
    Merit increase every year based on your performance

    Cons

    Stuck in the stone age- no one wants to change what they have been doing for 30 yrs.
    Management is too old- needs younger people with positive vibes
    Medical benefits are horrible- high deducs
    A lot of overtime for some areas in plant- will work you to death
    Company robs from employees first when hard times hit

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and do not be so afraid of change. Maybe some need to retire

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Eaton.

    Interview

    initial phone screen by recruiter from eaton, followed up by an hour phone interview with hiring manager. typical questions by the manager, "what my current role is, why I applied, etc etc"

    after the phone interview, I was invited onsite (I was an out of state candidate) - HR booked my flight for the onsite interview in a few weeks - they also confirmed the schedule for the onsite interview (who the panel of people are that will be interviewing me and what time slots, etc)

    fast forward to the day of the flight and I find out at the airport that my flight has been cancelled. Called the travel agency, they said someone from eaton cancelled it. Called Eaton and they basically said "ummm oops, we forgot to tell you, we are only interested in local candidates right now, sorry about wasting you're time"

    I've never seen such incompetence honestly, really poor job by Eaton HR staff. Simply phone call/email would have cleared everything up and I would have been on my way...instead they completely wasted my time and day..

    Be wary if you are an out of state/area candidate! they may pull the plug anytime without any notification!
