    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    After attending my school's career fair they invited me to do a first round interview with them. Since it is a full time position it might be taking them a little while to set up a second round interview. The interview process has taken quite a bit but overall it has been a positive experience so far.
