    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to a position and had an initial, one hour in-person interview. After that, I was invited to the campus and spent a half day with more of the team. Each interview was pretty standard, and they did a good job of mixing up the behavioral and job-specific questions. All of the people involved in the process were very nice and professional.

    I got an offer one month after starting the process.
