I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cummins Power Generation.

Interview Details – There were 2 interviews. One was behavioral, the other was functional. The functional interview was done 1 week after the behavioral. The functional interview was based on slightly more technical questions than that of the behavioral. The behavioral interview was about how you handle situations and the kind of person that you are.

Warranty Analyst Intern Interview

Warranty Analyst Intern
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Cummins Power Generation.

Interview Details – I applied on the Cummins site somewhere in September. I got an email sometime in February to set up an interview with an HR person over the phone. It was a pretty standard one, normal behavioral questions. Around two weeks or so after, I was set up for a second interview with the Hiring Manager, also over the phone. I was told to talk about myself, then she asked my two of three behavioral questions. For the rest of the interview, the Manager was telling me about the position, the branch, the team and what would I work with.

Interview Question – Nothing like that, all were average behavioral questions.   Answer Question
