    Easy Interview

    Application

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cummins (Columbus, IN) in January 2017.

    Interview

    4 hours interview process covering lots of thermal fluids questions, previous work experience, and behavioral interview. Met with all of the team members, and as a group, they all evaluated my performance. It all went well, but I lacked the experience they were looking for because they wanted someone who had already held a similar position to apply for the role.
