    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Rockwell Automation.

    Interview

    Panel, many question some not related to work. People interviewed, when you know them later are different ... like a "automation divas". So, how to deal with people that have less, but menu less experience than you. People that even has a passport?

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Rockwell Automation.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR, phone interview with hiring manager, 4 hours of interviews with people I've never spoken with since. STAR format. If you're in a non-technical role, just know a few corporate buzzwords and you'll be fine until you get to the person who actually knows what the role entails, which is where you'll have to prove your worth.

    If you get an offer, make sure you negotiate more to offset the cost of benefits and how little they actually cover.
