    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Marina del Rey, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was a good process. I applied to the internship online and got a phone screen request about a week later. After the phone screen, I was scheduled for an in-person interview. The people who interviewed me were great and asked about my resume items. As long as you can back up what you have on your resume with passion and experience, no matter who interviews you, they will appreciate it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Cedar Rapids, IA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through the career section on their website and received an invitation for a phone screen about 2 weeks later. In the phone screen (with two managers) I was asked about my career interests, some projects on my resume, behavioral questions (e.g. greatest strength/weakness, what was a difficult situation for you, etc.), and then I got to ask them my questions. Upon conclusion of the phone screen (which was about 45 minutes total) I was immediately offered an on-site interview scheduled for about 2 weeks later. For the on-site interview, I was offered overnight stay at a hotel (I declined), breakfast with an "ambassador" (friendly realtor from the area), was interviewed by two managers (the same from before), got a tour of the labs by the current engineer group I would be working with, and went to lunch at a nearby sports bar. All travel/stay/food expenses were reimbursed. The on-site interview was mostly more behavioral questions similar to the phone interview and the most technical questions required explaining pointers, stack, and other basic programming concepts. It took about 2 weeks for the HR department and managers to coordinate offer details.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    phone and on-site interview. First they will call you to ask you some basic questions, like how did you know the company, and they will introduce the position and team and what they are looking for and then ask what kind of projects you did or course work you did and also ask if you would like to work in a team environment or individual way. It is more personality talk. then they will fly you in for on-site interview and more tough questions on technique.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Melbourne, FL).

    Interview

    Submitted resume on line. After 3 weeks, a recruiter called and asked standard questions from the job description, and little bit about me like tell me your 3 best skills what are your 3 best qualities, etc. Then in a week a hiring manager called, we chatted about my resume, why I left previous employer, what projects I worked on etc. Then in a week I had job interview(s) at Rockwell Collins in Melbourne, FL. I talked to 4 engineers, 2 managers, and 1 HR person. They were all very nice. One of them showed me their lab where they integrate/test radars. It was very interesting to see. Engineers seem to be smart guys. I was not the best fit for the position. All the interviews took half a day 8:30-12:30. I got impression it would be a nice environment to work in, and they are nice people. They wanted to see if you would be happy working there, and if you would like the work. So, you have to convince them that you really would like the job. If you can easily move (no kids, no house), mention it to recruiters because it seemed they were looking to be as cheap as possible on relocation. The recruiter was supposed to call me within 3 days and tell me the decision they made, but he did not. Then, I called him on the fifth day after the interview, left a message, and he returned the call.
