Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cummins in September 2014.

Interview

Scheduled a one on one interview after applying through my university's career services. The first interview was a 40 minute one on one interview on campus. About a month and a half later, I received a call to schedule an hour long phone interview. Three weeks after the phone interview, I received an offer via email.

Interview Questions

  • First interview asked typical behavioral questions. (disagreement with others, overcoming a challenge, etc). Phone interview as neither behavioral or technical. They ask you questions about past projects and ask many follow up questions.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cummins (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    First an on campus interview, it was simple behavioral based interview not more than 30 mins. Will look at experiences, research and GPA more than anything else. Then if selected there is a functional interview over the phone. They asked pretty solid technical questions from thermodynamics and gives you problems to solve there and then. Revising before hand helps. And will ask you to interpret a concept by giving you a situation and example. Only bad thing about the process is they are very late in replying back, we have to catch up atleast twice to get to know whats going on.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about Duty cycle, which I had no idea about. Asks about engine cycles etc. They will brutally kill you if you dont know your stuff. I thought it was hard but I also though I wouldnt get in at all with the average answers I gave. But I did.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation , they offered a good intern position and a competitive salary. But very late in offering and gives very less time to answer.
