    I have been working at Eaton full-time (More than a year)


    I had a great mentor/boss while working at Eaton. I learned a ton from her. The benefits are pretty industry standard, except for relocation. The relocation package if offered is phenomenal.


    Really not a ton, just going through a rough economic time right now due to their market.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better in rough times. Half the people that are leaving on their own are great employees that are just afraid to stick around and be part of the next layoff if it occurs. Communicate where the market really stands so we can make better informed decisions.

    EHS Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hastings, NE
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Eaton (Hastings, NE).


    The interview process for me was long and drawn out. I did 1 phone interview to start, then I went in and did formal interviews on two separate occasions. After these in person visits, I had a phone interview with a regional EHS representative who told me that he would recommend that the location proceed with me. After all of this, they quit corresponding with me all together. No sorry we've found another candidate that better matches what we are looking for no nothing. I sent a couple emails and left a voice message and nothing. Very disappointed in how I was strung along and then just blown off after it was all said and done.
