    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    On campus recruiting led to the first interview. The first interview was behavioral and fairly straightforward. For much of the interview we simply went over my resume. I was contacted for a second interview about a month later. I am still waiting to hear back from them, but it was a positive experience overall.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    Applied in campus job fair. Had 1st round interview in campus. It was around 45 mins, almost purely behavior based. Then I got the 2nd round interview two weeks later. It was a technical phone call interview, lasting 1 hour. Focus on fatigue, stress, FEA, beam issue. Honestly it is not difficult but the most difficult thing I confronted is they used speaker and the calling quality was really really bad! I haven't expected about this. I am waiting for the final result and I hope it can come true!

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me a question about thermal fatigue of diesel engine and I don't have strong background about diesel engine, so I don't know how to redesign it. I am sorry I even forget the question itself because it is very strange to me.   Answer Question
