    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Cummins Power Generation in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    There was an on-campus interview at the university. I had two 1:1 interviews back to back. Both had behavioral type questions and situation based questions apart from questions from projects/work experience listed on the resume. It was a very casual interview and if you are calm you should be able to crack the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cummins Power Generation in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    After campus selection for further rounds, had a phone interview but was told will have another one. Questions were very management based for an Engineering Position. But after doing an interview and going through a few more rounds of interviews, it took them 2 months to get back for another interview, which was horrible.

    Interview Questions
    • Give an instance where you went against your manager/senior?   Answer Question
    • Give an example of where you were a leader of a team and how did you deal with people who had difference of opinions in the team? Give examples from your experiences   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered the job, but got another offer in the meanwhile. Since they were bad in the process of hiring and also I did not have a good experience with my internship since the day I joined they told me my position had changed and that they were not sure of my new manager. Which I felt was highly irresponsible and unprofessional knowing the fact that my initial hiring manager resigned 2 months before I started my internship
