Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Cummins in October 2011.

Interview

I met the Cummins recruiters at a career fair. After speaking with one recruiter over my resume, he handed it off to another that I also spoke with. Afterwards, he had me speak with a lady scheduling phone interviews. The phone interviewer sent an e-mail reminding me of the appointment as well as a short questionnaire about experience and Cummins job opportunities. She called on time and the interview lasted about 30 minutes. It was mostly a behavioral interview, and she commented on my excitement about how I answered them specifically relating to Cummins. It was not very technical, but she did ask about some of my previous experience and projects. She said Cummins would be contacting me within 2-4 weeks and that hiring managers would review my resume.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Cummins in March 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by the recruiter to set up an appointment for the phone interview. The recruiter wanted to talk and decide if I would be a fit for the company and could be considered for further stages. So it was really preliminary round. It was a behavioral interview with the typical round of questions starting of with strengths and weaknesses and move to more specific behavioral questions like how I dealt with a conflict with a colleague/co-worker etc

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cummins in February 2011.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews: 1st one was with an outside recruiter. Pretty easy. She sent a questionnaire 2 weeks in advance. On the day of the interview, I was asked the same questions. Basically HR Stuff. Describe situation of conflict Describe strengths and weaknesses Describe the most innovative thing you have come up with What are your future plans - 5 years ahead etc. What are the positions you are best suited for and why? (she had sent me a list of positions - entry level) 2nd one was a technical phone interview with the hiring manager. He was from the advanced systems design group. This one was pretty difficult. Nothing asked from resume. Was asked a lot of design engineering stuff like difference between form and function, explain the whole process when you designed a product, stress analyses, etc. had to come up with examples for everything. The whole thing lasted about 45 minutes. Got really tough at some points. Have been told that the decision will be made in 2 weeks. Will post an update once I receive it.
