    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Rolls-Royce (West Lafayette, IN) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I applied twice at a college job fair and got an interview a month after the second job fair. The call came just one or two days before the day I would be interviewed. The interview was fairly standard; the interviewers were very friendly (turns out they volunteer to go to campuses and do this sort of thing).

    Interview Questions

    • As I remember, most questions were not technical - more along the lines of "What's your greatest strength?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation doesn't happen for Co-Op positions as far as I know.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN) in October 2009.

    Interview

    They called and asked to meet with me the day after I met a guy at the job fair. I had little time to prepare myself or even learn anything about the company. I was asked a range of technical questions from statics, deforms, and basic economics. They asked a lot of questions regarding difficult situations I have been in and how I over came them. Like have you ever been in a group and had a conflict with another group member, and how did I react to it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN) in January 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process is in 3 steps. First a phone interview, then another phone interview, then a one on one interview and then the final offer after 2-3 weeks from the final interview. Interviews are conducted tactfully and one should be prepared to answer the technical and non-technical aspect of it. Overall a good experience.
