Design Engineer Interview

Design Engineer
Indianapolis, IN

I applied in-person and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Rolls-Royce.

Interview Details – The interview process is pretty standard. HR conducts the first round of interviews. If you get past this then management conducts the second round. Decisions are made slowly, so don't be surprised if it takes a while to get back to you.

Interview Question – Honestly, the questions are straightforward. Their interviewing process is not too crazy.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation as I accepted out of college.

North Canton, OH

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Rolls-Royce in April 2014.

They wanted me to elaborate on my experience and the type of training and equipment I used. They also ask you about why you are interested in this position.

Mechanical Engineering Intern Interview

Mechanical Engineering Intern

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Rolls-Royce in May 2014.

Interview Details – I heard from an organization I am a part of that Rolls-Royce was still hiring for a summer internship. I emailed the listed contact with my résumé and a brief cover letter. About two and a half weeks later, I received a call from this contact asking when we could meet on campus for an interview in person.

When I showed up at the interview location, there were two people interviewing and I ended up interviewing with the one with whom I had not previously spoken with. We sat down, and he told me that Rolls-Royce has very standard interview procedures. Then he pushed the papers with these standardized questions off to the side and proceeded to ask me to tell him about myself. He then just more questions about what I'm studying, showing great interest in my business minor. By the end, he never asked any typical behavioral or otherwise expected interview questions. We basically just chatted about what I've learned in school and he asked me some questions about what sort of factors I would need to consider given certain circumstances.

The interview went very well, and he told me he liked my attitude and drive. A couple hours later, he gave me a call. He said he was recommending me for another position that would utilize my business skills more and I would hear from this other person the next day to set up a phone interview. That's just what happened, and the phone interview went great. Shortly after the interview, I received an email saying that I was being recommended for the internship and I would hear back about start date within the next week or two.

A week and a half later, I was contacted with paperwork, etc. A drug test is required as well.

Interview Question – There was no really difficult question, as he did not use the standard questions. The most unexpected questions were those that were unique to myself. He asked me about different business considerations under certain circumstances.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. I was simply congratulated, and we proceeded from there.

Finance Intern Interview

Finance Intern
Indianapolis, IN

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rolls-Royce.

Very Easy Interview

Hourly Machinist Interview

Hourly Machinist
Indianapolis, IN

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Rolls-Royce.

Interview Details – Testing was basic and done in 3 parts; same day. Very easy. Wonderlic test was one of the tests given. The other 2 were Reading and Math. These tests were averaged for a passing score. The tests had nothing at all to do with being a machinist or aerospace. Just basic testing.

Interview Question – Interview was ridiculously easy. Asked about past experiences in machining. Very little on what would be expected of me as a machinist with the company. Upon being hired, I found that I was one of the only people with significant experience hired.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Union wages.
