    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cummins.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting. Was called for an interview shortly after the career fair. The interview was behavioural and the interviewer was patient and attentive. I was walked them through my resume and experience. Overall, the interviewing with them was a pleasant experience.

    They followed up about 10 days later saying I had been recommended for a functional interview.

    Oddly, they got back to me after a couple of months saying they were considering other candidates which left me confused.

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

    Interview

    Great experience interacting with talent scouts. Seems like they evaluated more on personality, communication skills than technical skills. Had 2 rounds of interviews in total. The first round was behavior-based on campus, and 2nd round was a call with functional talent scouts.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cummins.

    Interview

    The hiring process began at a college career fair and I talked to some recruiters at the booth and at the end of a short conversation I was offered a next day interview. It was a half hour behavioral interview and two weeks later I was called and asked to arrange a phone interview, which took place the following week for an hour. This interview was still behavioral, but was rooted largely in company values and a few situational based questions that relate to a Product Validation Engineer Co-Op.
