- No OfferDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce.
There was multiple questions asked at once. Know about their company. They will ask you what you know about them. Do it in STAR. 2 people in the room. One was a intern before and one was the recruiter.
- What was when you had an issue, what did you do about it? Answer Question
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce.
Overall the process is long (most larger companies HR takes some time to proceeed through all their steps). Initial communications were timely and detailed. 3 interviews total 2 phone one in person. The interview itself was very plesant with a good staff and team involvement so you met who you would be working with before accepting an offer. Offer came quick after interview
- None I am a season career person and have been through many interviews so nothing unusual was asked. Answer Question
- Accepted OfferNegative Experience
I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Mount Vernon, OH).
The interviews are very structured. So, they will ask you several pre-formated questions. They will ask other candidates the same questions.
- All stupid questions. There is no tricky questions. Answer Question
No negotiation. They said it is $60,000 per year. Pick or leave...
- Declined OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN) in October 2013.
It took forever even as a returning intern and had to let them know that I had other offers I was waiting on to get a response after months of promises that they were getting an offer to me.
Reasons for Declining
Was not competitive, weak benefits package, and would not negotiate.

Helpful (1)No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Richmond, VA) in May 2013.
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.
- Actually there weren't really any tough questions. It was much more an information exchange rather than a phone screen. Answer Question
Helpful (3)Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN).
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.

Met them at student career fair, called me that night to interview. Asked A LOT of very specific questions about the company such as competitors, the product, etc. it was a pretty stressful interview for it only being a prelimanry one. They didnt want me because i didnt have enough exprience, they wanted a junior
