    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiated a higher salary scale. If you quote a competing offer they try to match it. Take as much as possible during negotiation phase because after there is very marginal increase in salaries.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Rockwell Collins in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for a Software Engineer position, after one month I got a call from the hiring manager asking me some basic questions about my education, two weeks later they flew me to their HQ in Cedar rapids, IA. I had a whole day interview with different teams, asking me about my resume and some behavioral questions, three engineering managers took me to lunch in-between interviews. I was surprised for an entry level position they asked only three technical questions.
    I'm still waiting for the outcome.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rockwell Collins in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. If you are an international and mention so in the online form, the system will automatically reject you.
    Had a call with HR and discussed sponsorship details, salary expectations, experience, resume updates etc.
    Phone interview with team manager and Solution Architect. It was partially technical, basically walked through my resume.
    On site interview in Cedar Rapids. Very professional and warm people. It was a whole day interview. Spent one hr with the manager, one hour with the solution architect, one hour with the rest of the team, one hour lunch, 30 mins with boss's boss and 30 mins with the IT director. Most of the questions were about my previous experiences, difficult situations etc.
    Everyone warned me Cedar Rapids is a very cold place.

    I could notice that most of the people were selling the position based on culture of the company and possible activities in town instead of the position itself. Soon I realized that they did that because Cedar Rapids is a terrible place for single young people. Best suited for families.

    Negotiation Details
    I tried to negotiate for immigration related topics but they didn't change. I did not negotiate for salary, but later learnt I could have asked for about 10 K more than what I get.

    Hiring process was kind of haphazard but was sufficient to get the job. There is an HR dept here now but not many people being hire due to recesssion. On-boarding process seem a bit cumbersome but evidently works for this company. Company needs to improve in there diversity training.
