Interview Details

I talked to the recruiter of Cummins in the career fair at the university. A few days later I received an email to schedule a phone behavior interview. I talked to a engineer through phone. Three weeks later I received another email to schedule a phone functional interview. This time I talked to a site leader. I was told that the result would come out within two weeks, but four weeks passed and I hadn't been informed. So I wrote an email to follow up, and then received the offer few days later. The recruiters I've talked to are nice and made me feel comfortable during the interviews.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    I had a short conversation during a career fair at my university. About 3 weeks later I received a call to schedule a behavioral interview. It was conducted by another engineer who graduated a few years before me, so we had a lot to talk about. Another 2 weeks passed and I got an email from a senior engineer to schedule another interview. This interview was a general interview to see where my skills would be best suited. Almost exactly 2 weeks later I got an email from HR with an offer including a compensation package. Very nice people and easy to have a real conversation with.

    Interview Questions
    • General behavioral questions. What's a time when you gave someone the wrong information? When's a time when you had a disagreement with a supervisor? Pretty basic stuff.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cummins.

    Interview Details

    On campus recruiting led to the first interview. The first interview was behavioral and fairly straightforward. For much of the interview we simply went over my resume. I was contacted for a second interview about a month later. I am still waiting to hear back from them, but it was a positive experience overall.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cummins in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviews were being held at my university so I requested an interview and scheduled a face-to-face with the recruiter. Sat down through behavioral interview and scheduled a time to do a technical interview over the phone. Received an offer a couple weeks later. I was looking for a different type of position so they sent me another offer that I accepted. Was sent information regarding background check and drug test before employment.
