    Interview Details

    First contacted them during career fair on campus, scheduled an interview for the next day. First interview was an even mix of technical and behavioral questions. A couple of weeks after the first interview received an email from a manager requesting a phone interview. The phone interview was mainly technical questions and expanding on resume information.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Rockwell Collins.

    Interview Details

    Seemed to be very informal, much more about personality than experience or knowledge. It was mostly just conversation about semi-related topics. Easy interview.

    Negotiation Details
    Tried to negotiate, but was told take it or leave it.

    Electronics Technician Interview

    Interview Details

    Be prepared to take a test of your knowledge of electronics, mathematics, mechanics, and physics. You must score 70% and above. Sounds easy, however it is not an easy test. You will be shown the engineering labs and the manufacturing complex. You will see the magnitude of the entire engineering and production processes.

    Interview Questions
    • I would expect a ethics's based question or questions in which the answer would be one that would give the interviewer a feeling that he/she can trust you to "build trust". "Build trust" and "integrity", are company mottoes. You may be asked what you would do if you knew someone was doing something that was unethical.   Answer Question

    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cedar Rapids, IA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cedar Rapids, IA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Rockwell Collins in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applying online is a horrific process, the system is antiquated and the amount of questions to be answered are extensive. Once I got my resume submitted, I waited several days and was contacted by a recruiter via email. We exchanged several emails, and I was forwarded to the manager. It took over 6 weeks before the manager contacted me. I then had a plant visit, interviewed with a panel of potential peers, the hiring manager and 2 other managers. After about 4 weeks I received an offer. Unfortunately, because it took so long, I had accepted another offer and started by then.

    Interview Questions
    • It was dd, there were very few questions, it was mostly the managers talking about the role. I simply walked through my resume.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Rockwell Collins in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    My 1st and only interview with them was the site visit which I found odd as I lived 500 miles away. I met with HR for 1 hr, then with peers (1 hr) and finally with GM who would be my boss. I found all of the people to be very pleasant and professional.

    Interview Questions
    • Their process was very structured and didn't allow very much time for asking questions. They were required to ask typical "canned" questions and wanted examples for all responses. Nothing out of the usual...   Answer Question
