    Behavioral questions only, interviewer was hard to understand. Told me they'd let me know in a week, never heard back. They wanted really specific answers for questions, didn't want general experiences.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Cummins in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied during engineering day in my school and also told to apply online which I did. The behavioral interview is just to determine your weakness and strength from your past job. I do not know what else they wanna get from you except from that but I did get the intern.
