    The interview was over the phone and lasted about 45 minutes.

Most of the questions were behavioral though towards the end he did ask some very simple technical questions related to electrical engineering.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Raleigh, NC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through the careers portal. Interview process is pretty straightforward. I was interviewing for a position requiring C++ and basic programming knowledge. There were 2 phone screens. The first phone screen had me talking to 3 Systems Engineers from the flight controls division. Questions asked were very straightforward and simple. A LOT of emphasis on team work and general personality. They focus on your resume quite heavily and pick up behavioral questions related to prior work. Not too many technical questions - a few concepts in C++ and OOPs here and there, that's about it. Got a call immediately the next day for the second phone screen. Second phone screen had a similar format as the first, however i was now speaking to the Manager himself regarding my prior experience and skills. Again a different set of behavioral questions here. Got a call the very next day from HR extending an offer. Very swift and smooth process. They basically want to know if you're an excellent team player and a good professional. Very relaxed interview.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty laid back. They will ask you general personality questions and ask you about any projects you have on your resume. As long as you can demonstrate that can work on a team, and actively look for problems and correct them you'll be fine.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Interview

    This was a job interview for System Engineer and I was interviewed by engineers. They were thorough and went through behavorial questions quickly, since they wanted to get through the interview in an hour and were more interested in the technical questions. They pushed hard fpr the right technical answer, but when I came to a point that I didn't know it anymore, they switched gears before it became uncomfortable. Sounded like they were nice, and didn't have a pecking order, wanted someone who's smart and willing o ask questions. Were open to my questions and seemed to be nice guys to work with.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Cedar Rapids, IA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Initially spoke with a Rockwell Collins recruiter over the phone. She took my information and asked me a few basic questions about my current job and what my job interests were. She recommended a few positions and had me complete the applications and submit my resume to the Rockwell Collins careers website. After a few days the hiring managers reviewed my application and resume. I was then contacted by the recruiter for a phone interview. The phone interview lasted 45 minutes with 2 of the engineering managers. We talked about my resume and what type of work I was interested in. Approximately 30 minutes after the phone interview I received an email that I was selected for an onsite interview. The onsite interview was scheduled for 4.5 hours with a lunch. The first 15 minutes was a preview and plan for the day. The next hour was given to me to sell myself and provide further detail of my relevant experience to a group of 6 engineering managers. The rest of the day was a series of individual managers and engineers interviewing me, lunch, and a tour of the facility. All of the people I interviewed with were pleasant and professionally. I felt very comfortable during the entire onsite interview.
