    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Rockwell Collins in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I first heard from Rockwell in mid-March for the summer/fall co-op. I thought this was late in the game, but maybe it's normal for the engineering industry. I had written it off at this point, but once I heard from them it was a very quick and painless process to go from initial phone call to hired.

    I got the "we're interested" call on a Tuesday and set up a phone interview for that Friday. I talked to my would-be manager and two other people from the team. The interview was extremely laid back and relaxed. They mostly asked me about school and my interests. I had received a Rockwell Collins-sponsored scholarship, so that probably helped, and they asked about that. There wasn't a single technical question. They seemed to be more interested in my personality and level of interest.

    Later that same day I received requests to fill out some forms and a couple days later was extended the offer for the co-op position, which I accepted.

    Interview Questions
    • As I said above, the interview was very laid back and did not include any technical questions at all. They asked about my favorite classes and about projects I had worked on at school.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was not really any negotiation to be had, but I was very happy to receive a free, fully furnished apartment, as well as full company benefits.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rockwell Collins in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I met the representatives at a University Career fair. Got invited to a 1:1 interview which basically was more of them trying to assess if I would fit in. About 3 weeks later I had a phone interview with the concerned Manager. This was more about discussing courses/projects from my resume and some behavioral questions. The manager seemed pretty impressed and was very enthusiastic about hiring me. About two days later I received the offer which I accepted.
