    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cummins in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    THe hiring process started at the on campus job fair. I was then contacted via email. My interview went pretty fast as I was told that I jumped straight from a conversation with recruiters to an interview with senior HR personnel. Interviewing with senior personnel was a learning process in itself. However, they were so relaxed which made the interviewing environment relaxed.

    Interview Questions
    • THere were no difficult or unexpected questions. My advice is to review the usual and unusual behavior type questions. And be prepared to explain how your past experience (research included) will contribute to the position you are interviewing for. For example, if you discuss you recent thesis project explain your research process in terms that relate to the position interviewing for. Correlate your graduate assistantship experiences or any other experiences to the position interviewing for. This is key to promoting further interest by Cummins.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Cummins in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was completely mismanaged. The first round was pretty basic HR questions 1) Tell me abt urself 2) tell me about a time u had a conflict with fellow worker etc. The next round of the interview process took place 3 months after the 1st round, which I fail to fathom ..why. This was the technical round where I was asked some serious tech questions. I was expecting the interview to be based on my experience but, it was all predefined tech questions .

Before the interview day, the company invited every candidates to a dinner to introduce themselves. Interview was easy, with two interviewers. Asked mostly behavioral questions by one interviewer, the other took notes. Both are friendly. Didn't go through the first round, probably due to my experience is not a good fit.

    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.

    Interview Details

    It is an on campus interview. There is a pre-night one day before the actual interview, where you basicially socialize with the managers and recruiters. There are 6 behavioral questions for the first round of interview. 2 interviewers. The manager was very friendly and the recruiter was a little bit scary. Unfortunately, I didn't get to the second round of interview. But still, Cummins is a good company to work for.
