    Manufacturing Engineering Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Richmond, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Richmond, VA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rolls-Royce in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was good at first. Good up front communication with a real recruiter in the their HR department. Recruiter gave me good info about the company and position and its potential for growth. Phone screen was good and good communication about what would be next in the process. But once I was not selected to go further for an in-person interview it reverted back to the all to familiar impersonal rejection email. No personal call back to give feedback on how to improve.

    Interview Questions
    • Actually there weren't really any tough questions. It was much more an information exchange rather than a phone screen.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Stress and Lifing Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Rolls-Royce in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a phone call a few weeks later. Phone interviewed with a recruiter, and then the hiring manager. Was invited to Indianapolis for an onsite interview. Nice facility and nice people. I interviewed with two hiring managers that co-manage essentially the same group. I also talked with a human resources representative as well as one of their seasoned engineers. Questions weren't difficult. They were mainly trying to see how interested I was in the job since I was coming from an upper-level academic position.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Rolls-Royce in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Rolls-Royce is a corporate sponsor for my block in the McIntire School of Commerce, so I learned about the internship opportunity during their first visit. I applied and was selected to attend one of their "assessment centers" which consisted of a series of interviews and activities. There were two tests to take on a computer, one was a numerical test and the other a logical reasoning test which consisted of deciphering patterns. There was one behavioral interview to determine fit and one technical where they asked questions to test your knowledge on the company in respect to different areas of their business and problems they may have. They also set up a group activity to see how you work in teams and assess your leadership abilities.

    Reasons for Declining

    The interview was very early on in the year (November for a summer internship) and I wanted to wait until I had explored other options with financial services firms.

    Intern Interview

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.
