    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 online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cummins (Huddersfield, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online with CV and cover letter, took a couple of months to get an invite to come to an assessment centre. They split the groups in half, where they took us on a tour around the factory and then went for a personal interview. After lunch, there was a group exercise on building a tower using sticks and sellotape. We then had to make a group presentation on how we performed, how we split work, why etc.
    I talked about how I quickly realised I was better at taping the tower together, so we split work up in a way to become more efficient.
    Everyone was very nice and helpful during the process, which was great to feel relaxed. Interview by the head of R&D and a senior materials engineer. Questions were straight forward if you know about turbos. I also had questions on which locations they were based in and usual competency questions.

    Interview Questions

    • They gave me a turbo and asked me to identify features e.g. bearings, wastegate etc.   Answer Question
    • What materials are used on a turbo?   1 Answer

    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.

    Easy Interview

    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.
