    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.
