    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cummins (Columbus, IN) in November 2015.

    Interview

    As a current employee, I went through an internal job posting process - which is much different than the external process. We have an internal system that lists all open jobs. While reviewing the job postings, I stumbled across a position of interest because it matched my skill sets. I set up a meeting with the hiring manager to learn more about the specifics of the role and to ensure it was still of interest. The meeting validated my research, so I applied for the position. After applying, I then had three interviews: one with a group and two 1:1's.

    Interview Questions

    • Solving problems requires more than good plans; it means taking action. Give me an example of a time when you were able to take meaningful action in solving a practical problem.   Answer Question
