    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Honeywell (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2017.


    Interview process was straight forward. I applied online through the Honeywell careers website and was soon contacted by one of their recruiters about screening. It appears Honeywell uses a third party company for their hiring procedures. Once I got through the screening, I got scheduled for a 1 hour phone interview which was basically going over the resume and asking about the projects and my role in them. Then I was called for an in-person interview with the hiring manager and the team, where we talked more about the experience listed in the resume and quite a few behavioral questions. I was then offered the job in a week after the interview. The interview schedule was handled very smoothly by all their recruiters/coordinators and the whole process took 2- 4 weeks.

    I found that the hiring team is genuinely interested in hiring a fit for their team and their requirements. I say so, because I had a rejection from a different team after what I thought was a successful in person interview spanning more than half a day. Please do not take rejections personally. If you do well and still get a rejection, the recruiters do their best to find the right fit with other teams in the company. That is how I landed the offer the second time.
