North berwick plant has ot sometimes its mandatory on weekends 1 day then if its backed up its 1 hour a day and 1 weekend day. Usually its not mandatory and you can stay each day 4 hours and do the weekend. Ot is not open right now for slowed work from vendor delays. Its different in each department. Some have mandatory right now while we dont.
Just relax and answer whatever is asked of you honestly. Much better if you go after college and seek out a mentor.
What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Pratt & Whitney?
Promotions are slow, unless your buddy buddy with your supervisor. If possible I would avoid working there.
Yearly, but not equally distributed. A lot has to do with who you work for and what group you're working in. The process is called rack & stack, at the end of the year managers within your group get together and discuss who gets a raise and how much. In most cases some will get 3%-7% and some will get none. It is not based on your performance, it is mostly based on which managers like you and the more managers do, you are more likely to get a raise. Even if you are performing at 120%, if the mangers do not like you, you may get nothing at all !!! Tip: spend more time developing relationships with other managers and work on their projects more, rather than your own job and you will get a good raise every year
