    HR Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cummins (Avon, IN) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview first. It took 3 weeks for me to get interviewed in person. During the interview I was drilled. Everything I said, they questioned as if I was lying. They constantly exchanged faces and the entire interview was very unprofessional in my opinion. I could tell I wasn’t what they were looking for the minute I walked in. He even made a comment such as “I thought you were going to be late”. Why would I be late to an interview? There was only one reason he said that. I felt like they continue interview just because I showed up but they had no intention on moving me forward no matter my experience or my interview.

    Entry Level Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Worst hiring team ever. They just select random people from career fair for interview and just give offer without proper comparison with other able candidates.
    A hiring manager should take it's time to look for potential candidate. But for them it's like first come first 'get job'.
    Very disappointed, was expecting to be selected for interview but they said interview slots are full even though I was first in line there. Apparently they filled all slots for undergrad and when grad students came next day, they were filled.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cummins (Indianapolis, IN) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Process started with a 15 minute phone interview with a recruiter. A week later, I had a 30 minute phone interview with the "Hiring Manager" or person I would be working directly under. A week later, I had a 4 HOUR face to face interview with 7 different people... some 1:1, some 2:1. They all asked similar questions and it was a complete waste of an entire afternoon that could have been done in an hour.
