    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cummins.

    Interview

    Applied for on campus interview through my university. All of you have to do is upload your resume The company officials emailed me. They were very nice and mostly asked personality questions and wanted to know more about your projects. My biggest disadvantage was that I was a freshman and didn't have too much to say about in my resume. If you have adequate experience and a likable personality the process is going to be easy.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Cummins in July 2014.

    Interview

    The behavior interview followed a list of question pre-prepared. It is Friday afternoon and the interviewer sounds sleepy, so I didn't get very good feedback. The interview focuses more on what type of person you are and how you reacts to certain situation. They did asked some ordinary questions like describe your challenge or similar stuff.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cummins (Columbus, OH) in October 2013.

    Interview

    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.
