I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Rolls-Royce in November 2013.
Interview Details – Preliminary Communication with them is fairly strait forward. They call you up when they would like to interview you. When they call you up, they set up an interview time and from there you will interview with them over the phone.
I actually have two lists of the interview questions and grading scale & required response for each question.
To be honest, though, I would hate working for a company as formulaic as this. However, to each is his own. Screw the system.
Reason for Declining – I received another offer from a more appealing company
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Rolls-Royce in September 2012.
Interview Details – I applied to a finance internship at Rolls in fall and was contacted a few months later with an offer for an interview in the costumer support division. This was not what I was looking for but decided to accept the interview call and continue on with the application.
The interview was rather short and consisted of only behavioral questions. This included "describe a situation..." "walk me through your resume.." etc.
I felt that I had a very good interview with this HR representative and was told I would be called by one of the department managers in the upcoming weeks.
I was never called and after 3 emails and the passing of the hiring date I received an email saying I did not receive the internship at least 6 months later.
Interview Question – The questions were basically behavioral questions such as "describe a situation..." and "walk me through your resume..." Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Rolls-Royce.
Interview Details – Applied on their website sometime in October and got an interview with them in February. First interview was on phone, lasted about 45 minutes and were mostly behavioral questions and what does RR do. About few days later got invited to on-day assessment in Indianapolis. They accommodated me very well and the night before the interview there was a mixer with about 15 other candidates and Rolls-Royce employees. The actual day of the assessment there was a presentation about my skills, 2 interviews, group exercises, math, reasoning tests and a discussion about your solution to the case study they give you. All in all, very difficult interview process. Make sure you know what RR does and be familiar with their products.

Negotiation Details – Very little negotiation since it was for an internship, did negotiate some on salary
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rolls-Royce in September 2012.
Interview Details – Strong application, take time to learn company history, production areas, and spend more than one session writing the application. Do not copy online answers. Assessment day, make sure you know how an engine works, knowing anything about the company as it may come up. Be heard in the group interview, don't give up in the technical interview, they don't expect you to know the answers they expect you to make intelligent guesses.
Interview Question – Technical interview, explain a pre determined set of engineering questions/theories. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Rolls-Royce.
Interview Details – Sent application through website, and then took some online psychometric tests. It took them 2-3 months to reply after the tests. Was invited to a day-long assessment centre, which involved a competency interview, a technical interview, a group exercise, psychometric tests, and a presentation about myself.
Each interview took about an hour, with two interviewers, and I came out feeling quite exhausted.
