    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins.

    Interview

    The interview was behavioral and they seem to find your interest of the field. This seemed to be a major consideration and seems they tend to hire people whose academic interests lie with them and not the ones who are exploring

    Interview

    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

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

    Interview

    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

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

    Electronics Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    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
