    Got an interview from Fall career fair. Interview itself was not difficult, behavioral. Thought I did well but never heard back. I think the second round interview is more technical.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cummins.

    Interview

    After talking with a recruiter at a college engineering job fair, I was invited to do a next-day interview. The interview consisted almost entirely of behavioral question (maybe 10 behavioral questions and only 1 or 2 technical questions). One of the two interviewers was not an engineer, which made the interview awkward because she had no idea what I was talking about when I discussed technical concepts.

    Interview

    Campus interview was a behavior interview with questions to get to know more about you. Most of the questions were about working with others and how do you react when working in groups.
    As long as you know yourself well and are able to express yourself clearly, it should probably be fine.

    • Tell me a time when you worked with different cultures.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Cummins (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    This was a pop-up interview that I received from networking at a career fair. Most of the questions I was asked were behavioral in nature (like the cookie-cutter behavioral interview questions), but the interviewer asked one technical question. I didn't know the answer, but I tried my best to answer it and although my answer was incorrect, she appreciated the effort on my part.
