    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Cummins in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through college career fair and interviewed at my university.
    I've finished the first round and all of them are behavior questions. Then the interviewer and I talked about the company culture and career path. The interviewer is a serious guy and did not smile or give much feedback to me. He said they will notify me in two or three weeks and the second round(also the final round) will be a phone interview. The function manager will ask technical questions.
    The interview is all about behavior questions, no technical things at all.
    If you prepared behavior questions very well, I think you could do well.

I answered the behavioral questions, a week later I had my phone interview.
