    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cummins (Columbus, IN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through the online Cummins career site on their company website. The application was lengthy but it ensures that you are giving necessary information to get you and your potential employer on the same page about what you want to gain from the internship experience and what they require of an intern. The process has two phone interviews: first is with an HR representative and is an overview interview; the second is with a talent manager in the area your have designated. I applied in December and had accepted my position in mid-February.
