Engineering Interview

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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Cummins in October 2016.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cummins (Ann Arbor, MI) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Talked to Cummins recruiter on campus and was offered an on-campus interview. The first round was all behavioral test. One week later, I received an email invitation to advance to the second round. I was contacted by the hiring manager for a technical interview. She kept rescheduling the interview date and eventually cancelled by saying that my resume was accidentally submitted to her. Disappointed.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cummins (Orlando, FL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Very straightforward process. Questions were geared towards understanding fit with company culture, i.e. mostly behavioral type questions, few technical. The questioned focus on team work experiences, success and failures stories and what done about them. The interviewer allowed time for questions and shared experience in the company, very engaging and warm approach.
