The Textron Systems Hiring Process – A Step-by-Step Overview
Textron Systems is committed to finding the best and brightest talent to join our team. We have made applying for a career at Textron Systems simple and straightforward — here’s what you need to know!
The online application process is simple and easy: create a profile, upload your resume, complete any required assessments, and submit. You can then track the status of your application using the “Jobs Summary” tab.
Our Human Resources team will contact qualified candidates for an initial talent screening.
The Human Resources team will review the most qualified candidates with the hiring manager and decide whom to bring in for an interview.
After interviewing each candidate, our Human Resources team will meet with hiring managers to discuss candidate evaluations and make a final hiring decision.
The Human Resources team will reach out to the selected candidate and make a verbal offer, followed up by a formal offer letter. Offers of employment are contingent upon the successful completion of a drug screen and background check.
Once the position is filled, other candidates will be notified of disqualification in the online system and/or a formal letter sent via email.
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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
