    Field Service Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Rockwell Automation in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview at first. I had made a good contact at an info session, so on campus was just show up and answer a few basic questions about preferences, etc. Was told I would be getting a second round right there. It's really good if you talk about some of their products, especially if you have used them before.

    On site interview was actually really fun. For day 1, company and job presentations followed by engineering Olympics, basic intro engineering team building activities. I had a lot of fun with my team. Then it was a social hour. Your interviewers are there, so the key is to talk to them and show that you are a fun person. Also, there are many other Rockwell employees, so it is also good to talk to them and get your name know. The more you network, the better. Day two was 4 one-on-one interviews. Basic behavioral questions. A few situation questions like how would you handle an angry customer? What if you showed up on site and they rescheduled your work, but wanted you to stay and work on something else?

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the offer because I received a higher paying offer from a company with more future potential. Had I not gotten the other offer, I would have accepted this one. The other job was a long shot that I didn't think I would get.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Rockwell Automation in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    One phone interview with the hiring manager and a team manager. Then they asked me to do a presentation on a problem they gave me ahead of time. The onsite lasted 3+ hours. Presentation was given to the hiring manager, the team manager, a team member, a visitor engineer, HR and the VP. Then one to one talk with a manager from another group. Then supposed to be one on one with the HR but he left early due to urgent family issue. So I got a tour with the team member. Then the one on one talk with the VP. The next day I had another phone interview with the director, who was unable to attend my presentation due to travel. This is round one. The round two will be next week.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Rockwell Automation.

    Interview Details

    I first became interested in Rockwell at an event they held on my campus where I gave them my resume. A couple weeks later I received an email about setting up a phone interview. This was a pretty basic interview - just discussed my resume and their products/what they do at Rockwell. I then was contacted for an on-site interview which lasted about 3 hours. This consisted of two technical interviews, a tour, and lunch at their facility. The interviews weren't too difficult and mostly covered some basic data structures and other questions about object oriented programming.
