I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at RBC Bearings (Seneca, SC) in May 2014.
One on campus interview and one site interview in Seneca, SC. 1. The on campus interview was one on one with the potential manager. It was a pleasant discussion of past intern and co-op responsibilities as well as my leadership experience. 2. The site interview included a tour of the factory floor. I spoke separately with two applications engineers who had worked there for a year or more to understand what my role would be. I spoke with two other engineers who attended undergrad with me which was nice to get the take of a recent graduate. I also spoke with a manufacture director and the same potential manager. Overall, the interview process was pleasant and professional. However, I declined my offer due to the salary ($58,000 - they were not willing to negotiate) and the location being too close to my previous university when I wanted to move on to a new bigger location.

I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at RBC Bearings (West Trenton, NJ) in May 2012.
Interview with HR director for a period of time to go over company details and information in regards to the position. Next interview with the Director of Engineering about similar things and about my educational/skills background for the position. A small panel of younger adults were brought in to ask questions about my experience and knowledge. Another small panel of design engineers were sent in for the final part of the interview. Questions involved about my internship experience, senior design project, and information about my schooling.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at RBC Bearings (Oxford, CT) in October 2010.
RBC Bearings HQ recruiter contacted me via e-mail to schedule a telephone screening. My initial impression is that is a "hidden treasure" company. It sounds like a relatively small company and after my initial phone screen I was immediately scheduled to have a face to face interview. Due to the time frame between the phone screen and the interview, I was told I had to be flexible because the full time sales force is on the road 80% of the time. Overall I was extremely impressed and satisfied with the outcome. More description to come if I receive a job offer.

Had an interview with 5 individuals at different times in one day. Each person asked similar questions with regards to educational background and other information on resume. Interview was easy going and not stressful. First interview with the company was more formal while the second interview was more informal and just used to get to know the other members of the team.
