    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Cummins Filtration in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    At the time(2009) the business had the purse strings fairly tight, so I had a series of about 2 phone interviews. The first was a one on one with an engineer who was an alumni at my university. After about 2 months, I had another with my future manager and the leader of the division. After that some price negotiation was done. Whole process lasted ~3-4 months.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Cummins Filtration in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The Interview was intense. It was with six other chemist who would be colleagues if hired. Including the supervisor. The questions were very technical detailed questions dealing with different types of titrations and how to use certain equipment such as HPLC, GC and scanning electron microscope. Was asked the usual questions such as in a Team environment would you consider yourself a leader or follower. Also how would you deal with an unproductive Team member. Strengths, Weakness. And the ever popular, why should we choose you.

    Interview Questions
    • I found the question the most challenging that asks me to describe a time when myself and a fellow Team member could not get along and what did I do.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 9 months - interviewed at Cummins Filtration in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and Interview Process was long and drawn out. My first interview at a career fair was in September of 2012 and my last interview was in April 2013 summing to 3 interviews total; 2 behavior based and 1 technical. I didnt recieve my offer until may 2013. That was the worst part of it. That being said during my second interview with corporate HR in Columbus, IN I was given 7 sub categories (i.e. Thermodynamics, Mechanics of Materials, Material Science, etc) to pick my favorite 3 from in ranked order so they could best place me in an environment to my liking.

    Interview Questions
    • Apart from the tedious and double edged behaviour based questions such as, "Tell me about a time when you...." The question I had the hardest time articulating was, "Give me an example of when you used engineering to solve a problem."   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    As a co-op no negotiation is allowed as it is a required part of my education at Rochester Institute of Technology.

    I pesonally went through an agency here in Australia and the interview with that agency was a very positive experience.
