Commercial Sales Specialist Interview

Commercial Sales Specialist
Columbia, MO

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Rockwell Automation.

Interview Details – Got the interview out of career services from my college. The first interview was on campus with the outside sales and inside sales supervisors. They seemed like very nice people and asked the usual HR questions... name a time when you had trouble working with people etc.. After the first round interview it took about a week for them to get back to me about a second round interview (also on campus) with their boss. He seemed like a nice person as well although a little uptight. Second round interview was essentially the same as the first with very similar questions, so I got the impression that it was just there to feel your personality out. The people that I interacted with though as a whole seemed a little uptight in my opinion almost like robots.

Interview Question – How do people describe you in a way you would agree with.... how do people describe you in a way you don't agree with and why.   Answer Question

Chemical Engineer Summer Intern Interview

Chemical Engineer Summer Intern
Burr Ridge, IL

I applied online - interviewed at Rockwell Automation in April 2014.

Interview Details – The interview was through Montage Interviews, and for most of the interview we talked about the position and conversation that related to it. Most of the interview seemed like a conversation more than question and answer. He was very courteous and understood that I have not had many interviews to practice.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself   Answer Question

Information Developer Interview

Information Developer

I applied online and interviewed at Rockwell Automation.

Interview Details – I was quickly contacted for a phone interview by the recruiter. She asked the standard questions, nothing out of the ordinary or unexpected. After telling me that I was an excellent candidate for the position, she told me to expect the hiring manager to schedule an interview with me the next week. When I did not receive a phone call, I contacted the recruiter who informed me that she had been unable to reach the hiring manager but would update me. A week later, no contact, so I contacted her again to receive the same answer. This repeated itself two more times until she stopped returning my calls and emails. Very unprofessional and unexpected from a company like Rockwell Automation.

Asset Manager Interview

Asset Manager
Detroit, MI

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Rockwell Automation in March 2009.

Interview Details – Asset Managers are placed on contract for a year, and then are either hired or discharged by the company. The interview process is strange at very best. Multiple candidates are brought in at the same interview time, and then floated from one office to the next for a "round robin interview".

Interview Question – How have you improved over the last year, and how have you improved from your mistakes?   View Answer
