    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to a position and had an initial, one hour in-person interview. After that, I was invited to the campus and spent a half day with more of the team. Each interview was pretty standard, and they did a good job of mixing up the behavioral and job-specific questions. All of the people involved in the process were very nice and professional.

    I got an offer one month after starting the process.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    Applied for on campus interview through my university. All of you have to do is upload your resume The company officials emailed me. They were very nice and mostly asked personality questions and wanted to know more about your projects. My biggest disadvantage was that I was a freshman and didn't have too much to say about in my resume. If you have adequate experience and a likable personality the process is going to be easy.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Cummins in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Straight forward interview Process.
    Either you get into via campus recruitment or apply online.
    Cummins is known to have a very good process of evaluating candidates.
    I applied online and a couple months later was informed the manager would be interested in speaking with me about the position.
    The first interview was going thorough the resume and discussing the projects , team dynamics and other behavioral questions.
    A week later was invited for a functional interview which included a meeting with the managers, a case study interview and general questions.
    It was followed by an HR wrap-up.
    Waited for a decision for two weeks. Still haven't heard back. So I assume it's a No.
