    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    First an on campus interview, it was simple behavioral based interview not more than 30 mins. Will look at experiences, research and GPA more than anything else. Then if selected there is a functional interview over the phone. They asked pretty solid technical questions from thermodynamics and gives you problems to solve there and then. Revising before hand helps. And will ask you to interpret a concept by giving you a situation and example. Only bad thing about the process is they are very late in replying back, we have to catch up atleast twice to get to know whats going on.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked about Duty cycle, which I had no idea about. Asks about engine cycles etc. They will brutally kill you if you dont know your stuff. I thought it was hard but I also though I wouldnt get in at all with the average answers I gave. But I did.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation , they offered a good intern position and a competitive salary. But very late in offering and gives very less time to answer.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cummins in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I first communicated with a general hiring manager for the company. We held a 1:1 phone interview that lasted approximately 30 minutes. Before the initial interview, I was emailed a sheet of behavioral questions to answer, and we discussed my answers over the phone. This interviewer referred me to another person in HR, who called me and briefly confirmed my information and where I would be willing to work. Finally, the person who would be my supervisor if I was given the job called me and asked me several questions based around the job and my personality.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Cummins in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by 2 people. (1 asked questions and 1 listened in) I was asked simple behavioral questions like, "tell me about a time when you dealt with a conflict" and "When did implement creativity to a specific task?" It was very conversational and lasted about 45 minutes. The interviewers were friendly and not intimidating. Overall, the interview was a very positive experience.
