    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process is totally irresponsible. I gave a behavioural phone interview and thought it was ok-ok. I never heard back from the engineer who took my interview even after following up 3 times.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    I received an email about setting up an initial behavioral interview. I was interviewed the next week and was eventually emailed about another phone call, but for more of a company sales pitch rather than another interview. After telling them which department I would be interested in, I received an offer for employment about a week later.

    Mechanical Engineering Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Cummins in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied in October through the online portal. Was contacted in Feb of the next year. The first round was a simple HR round with general behavioral questions. The second round was more technical. I did not apply for the position they interviewed me for and I really dont understand their policy of interviewing people for positions they have no idea about. I could not answer the questions properly and was sent the reject letter the day after the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • None. The questions were typical questions related to that field and could have been answered by any professional who has decent technical knowledge.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cummins in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied Online, Process took 3 months to get a call, had a call with a recruiter which asked all the basic behavioral questions and i think i responded all fine. He said he will get back to me, but in reality they never did. Company does'nt have any courtesy to reach out even if there is a denial. Waited more than a month, as it was my dream job, followed up with the recruiter but no luck. Too arrogant and rude people.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    I'm a grad student with no work experience and have done two interviews so far and there is at least one more interview left.

    First interview was on campus, they ask you behavioural questions and go through some points on yours resume. It lasts about 30-45 minutes. They decide what department to place you in this interview.

    The second interview was a phone interview. The interview was done by the head of the group that was interested in my skill set. This is a technical interview where they ask you some basic ME questions from undergrad and ask you about projects on your resume in detail. Some behavioural questions are thrown in as well.
    The next interview will be from somebody in the same or related department.

    Interview Questions
    • In round 1, Describe a situation where you took upon an assignment that was not anybody's responsibility but had to be done.   Answer Question
