How to Apply

Setting up your online profile

In order to apply for an open position, you need to create a profile on our website. After doing so, you can submit your résumé to posted positions of interest, check on the status of your résumé, and complete any position assessments. You can edit your profile at any time.

Uploading Your Résumé and Additional Documentation

The Human Resources team will be able to access your résumé through keyword searches once it is uploaded, and you may be considered for applicable positions across all Textron businesses. It is recommended, however, that you post your résumé to your position(s) of interest. You can also attach additional documents to your profile. To do so, go to your profile, select “edit,” and browse for your document in the “resume” section of your profile. After you select it, you’ll need to give it a name — “Cover Letter,” “List of References,” etc. — and save your profile.

Assessments

Assessments provide the Human Resources team with additional means of qualifying candidates. They consist of no more than 10 true or false questions and should be completed at the time you are applying. Assessments will occasionally include a text-based question. If you opt to complete the assessment at a later time, you can find it listed under the “Assessments You Need to Take” section of your profile.

Applying for Multiple Positions

You may submit your résumé to any positions of interest, but you should only apply to positions for which you are qualified.

Checking on Your Application

Check in online only

Once you apply online, your résumé is uploaded into an electronic database and you should check on your application status using the Jobs Summary tab only. No phone calls please. After submitting, you can check on the status of your application using the Jobs Summary tab.

If You’ve Been Marked “Not Selected” or “Disqualified”

This usually means the Employment Representative has identified a candidate(s) that is more qualified or a better fit for the position. It is also possible that a candidate had already been selected or the position had been canceled. Unfortunately, we cannot provide specific feedback due to the volume of applications we receive.

Reapplying to a Position

In the event you accidentally remove yourself from consideration, please email us at recruiting@textron.com and we will reinstate your résumé submission.

Updating Your Profile

You can edit your profile at any time, so update it as often as necessary to keep all information up to date.
