    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Cummins in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Online application through Cummins website. After a few weeks I was contacted for an initial phone interview with Cummins corporate recruiter. Interview was pretty straight forward and to the point with general questions about prior experiences, etc. At the end of the interview I was emailed a list of five questions to be completed by the end of the day. I spent a considerable amount of time considering and writing the responses. The recruiter stated "I will be back in touch as soon as I receive the next steps from the manager". Within a week I received a stock automated denial email.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Cummins in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to an engineering position online in May 2014 and received an email from a Cummins recruiter in July 2014. A phone interview was scheduled a couple days after this initial contact. The interview, as most other interview experiences seem to have been, was just an initial screening interview with questions primarily focused on current work experiences and reasons why I was interested in working at Cummins. After being told I would hear back from them "soon" regarding next steps in the interview process, I never heard back from the recruiter after a few follow-up emails and phone calls.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cummins in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I reached out to the HR Recruiter for my area of interest and provided my resume and my goals for where I would like to be, career wise. Within a month I had several areas of interest within the company that seemed to be a good fit. HR worked with me and provided my resume to several managers within the company. Individually they would reach out to schedule an interview. I chose which interested me the most and through phone interviews (two) I was offered the position at a business unit that fit me the best.

    Interview Questions
    • There were specific questions about the role, analytical questions on the spot that caught me off guard. Technical in nature, yet reasonable given the situation.   Answer Question

    Administrative Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, IN
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed twice with Cummins, a group interview with the hiring manager for the position and one of the other employees in the department. I later had a second interview with the dept. manager. The communication level was very lacking - I was only invited to interviews through a Google calendar invite without the necessary information (such as correct time of interview) always included, and text message followups from the hiring manager to confirm the invite details. When the hiring manager left me a message to let me know they were not going to offer the position to me, I was invited to call and discuss the decision at a specific time, at which there was no answer. Two attempts to take them up on the offer to discuss via phone, and one email later thanking them for the consideration and my desire for feedback, and I've had no response. Overall, a very unprofessional communication level, though I appreciated the quick pace of the process.

    Interview Questions

    There were two interviews. First interview was awarded after discussion at my school's career fair.
