I applied through college or university and 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 Question – 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 applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Cummins in February 2014.
Interview Details – Applied in November, got a call in Feb. Very late response, and a bad one at that. You are made to feel that you really are lucky for being selected for the interview. The first round is just a behavioral round where you will be asked all the expected run of the mill questions. The second round happens after two weeks and a technical person interviews you. This interview is more technical and you can expect a lot of good questions. But, I have colleagues who have been asked garbage in the round. Like where they are from, and then they spoke for 20 mins about where they are from and how they are settling in a new place. Its really random the whole process.
