    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Rolls-Royce in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial online application followed by invitation to take online psychometric tests (numerical & logical reasoning). Received an e-mail invitation to an assessment centre 2-3 weeks later. Day-long assessment centre consisted of individual presentation, competency interview, psychometric retest, group exercise, technical interview and written case study. All in all, the day lasted around 6-7 hours.

    Interview Questions
    • Technical interview by far the most challenging. Not one question in particular, but style of interview. Make sure you know basic engineering principles and how to apply them within an engine.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rolls-Royce in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    1 phone interview (so far): Questions were very technical. Focusing on establishing my strengths and core interests. Interview started by asking me to summarize my work history. The 2 interviewers then asked specific questions on what i had done. They were intrested in knowing what engineering tools and processes were followed and used to reach the conclusions noted (on the CV). Was also asked what areas i would like to focus on while at RR.

    Received email confirmation today for next phase (face-to-face interview).

    If successful, Its been explained that a 3rd and final interview (at what will be my work location) will be scheduled.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rolls-Royce in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Filled out the application form online which consisted of some standard 'give an example of a time when you demonstrated' questions. I was then invited to the assesment center. All expenses were covered by Rolls-Royce including booking hotel accomodation and taxis the following morning. Assesment Center had around 10 candidates present and started with a brief business case study essay, numerical and verbal reasoning tests, a technical interview, competancy based interview (which included making a presentation about myself) and finally a group exercise. Overall a very professional interview process.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Rolls-Royce in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Received an offer for an on campus interview after talking with representatives at our university's career fair. So far this has consisted of a preliminary 1:1 interview and I have now been invited for a second round interview on-site. The interview lasted about 45 min and consisted of the interviewer (Engineer not HR person) walking through my resume and asking behavioral type questions. Interview ended with one technical question.
