    Application

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

    Interview

    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."   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    As a co-op no negotiation is allowed as it is a required part of my education at Rochester Institute of Technology.

    Interview

    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
