Hey all-

I've been lucky enough to recieve an opportunity to interview at Honeywell on Thrusday.

It's at the Tempe location, Priest and Warner Rd.

Trouble is, I'd like to do some research about the company before I go in...

And I cannot seem to find out what they do! I know the job is dealing with pneumative valves, but beyond that, I'm out of info. It's for a process/product engineer position.

Anyone know what they do there?

Thanks!!

Erik

I have no idea what they do there, but I worked for Honeywell before my current job, and I think they are a great company.

Since the reorganization within Honeywell the Tempe facility, I believe, is now under the Aerospace division. The facility does R&D and testing for valves of all types (ie. pneumatic, hydraulic), mostly for planes and submarines.

Not to sound negative but before the "merger" with Allied-Signal, Honeywell was a decent place to work. Now there are high turnover rates and lingering layoffs always on the horizon. I haven't worked there for several years but I have a couple friends and a finace who are still there. If you have any questions I could try to get some answers for you.

One of our buyers worked there several years. I have chatted lightly with her about her former job, but aside from the part that she bought for that division I can't provide much info, sorry.

The site used to be a manufacturing/assembly site of valves. They also test valves that are built by outside vendors. Most of the manufacturing is gone, assembly and test remain.

Engineering roles will consist of checking out of spec hardware, figuring out by there might be high failure rates in certain valves/applications, R&D etc. You will have close contact with the mechanics, management and enigineering from the vendors that provide parts.

Hope this helped, send me an IM if you want. That was the first HON site I worked at.

I work for them now. Find some place else! HONEYWELL sucks and is getting worse. Outsourcing of jobs, big time. I am looking else where as we speak. My .02
