Intern Interview

Intern
Mayfield Heights, Cuyahoga, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Rockwell Automation.

Interview Details – I first became interested in Rockwell at an event they held on my campus where I gave them my resume. A couple weeks later I received an email about setting up a phone interview. This was a pretty basic interview - just discussed my resume and their products/what they do at Rockwell. I then was contacted for an on-site interview which lasted about 3 hours. This consisted of two technical interviews, a tour, and lunch at their facility. The interviews weren't too difficult and mostly covered some basic data structures and other questions about object oriented programming.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Rockwell Automation in February 2013.

Interview Details – It was a 2 person interview with standard questions,highly inquisitive about knowledge of control and low voltage systems. GPA as well as coursework were major factors. They wanted to know if I had any proficiency with Oracle, then if I would have any qualms about learning the software. One of the interviewers was a Senior Project Manager while the second was from HR.

Intern Interview

Intern

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Rockwell Automation in May 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process was very good, happened quite fast and had great support from HR. As a college student, I ended up interviewing in late May, so they seemed to have expedited the whole process to make sure I would start my internship on time. The interview itself consisted of one HR generalist and two employees from the department in which my position was listed for. Had a good time answering questions because it was a very relaxed environment, I did not feel pressured and the people were very friendly.

Interview Question – What are some of your weaknesses and how are you working on them?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation available, but there is not much to negotiate as an intern, so this is perfectly fine.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Rockwell Automation in May 2011.

Interview Details – 3 separate people interviewed me for three separate positions. An offer was made a week later. Your usual interview questions were asked: What would you do in such and such a situation? Describe your best boss. Describe your weaknesses. Get an interview cheat sheet from your local job office, write down your answers and you'll be prepared.
