Easy Interview

Software Intern Interview

Software Intern
Cedar Rapids, IA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rockwell Collins in March 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process went quickly because I was referred by another employee. I had a quick interview with the hiring manager and was offered the job right away. The interview didn't ask many technical questions because the interviewer was already familiar with my educational and work experience. Follow up with the HR department took longer. There was quite a bit of paper work to complete, along with a drug test.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions. The interview was mostly about personality and negotiating start and end dates.   Answer Question

Senior Systems Engineer Interview

Senior Systems Engineer
Portland, OR

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Rockwell Collins in April 2013.

Interview Details – Talked with hiring manager after being referred by a colleague working at Rockwell and was referred to a requisition and HR. On-site interview within 3 weeks of applying. I was all but told the job was mine to lose. 6 person all day interview. Mostly personality and process, no technology questions.

Interview Question – Draw a flow diagram of the system you are working on now and identify what areas you are responsible.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Rockwell continued to ask what I wanted to be paid and I continued to ignore the question until getting an offer, stating instead, "I want to be paid an appropriate amount for the job description." Rockwell came in well under expectations and I countered $20k higher and asked for a hiring bonus. Rockwell gave a second offer $9k over initial with a $10k bonus. I countered again giving a final number $3k higher and received it.
