Mechanical Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Indianapolis, IN

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Rolls-Royce in October 2011.

Interview Details – Met the recruiters at my university's career fair. After introducing myself and speaking to the recruiter for 15 minutes I was invited to a mixer later that evening. After an hour at the mixer I departed and later received a phone call to interview with them on campus the following day. The interview was approximately 45 minutes long and consisted of mostly "what would you do if..." type questions following by open discussion.

Interview Question – How would you explain a free body diagram to a non-engineer?   Answer Question

Mechanical Engineer Interview

Mechanical Engineer
Peterborough, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Rolls-Royce.

Interview Details – Very structured, pre-screen telephone call followed by face-to-face interview by line manager and department head.

Interview Question – No real surprises, the questions were competency based interview questions with a desire to explore my technical knowledge in relation to the role. Recommend that potential candidates bring along work examples as this would help provide evidence to support answers.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The minimum holiday entitlements were offered initially, however this is something that should be negotiated based on experience.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Rolls-Royce in April 2010.

Interview Details – The Phone interview was a case of jumping through the hoops to proceed to the next round. i.e. why I want to work for Rolls Royce, why i chose to study engineering etc etc. Then a couple of mental arithmetic questions, some basic engineering problems and talking about my cv which i submitted online.

Interview Question – Describe the degeneration process of carbon ceramic brake discs   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I received an offer from a preffered firm.
