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

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Mount Vernon, OH).

    Interview

    The interviews are very structured. So, they will ask you several pre-formated questions. They will ask other candidates the same questions.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. They said it is $60,000 per year. Pick or leave...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Richmond, VA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    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.
