Mechanical Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.
