    CPE Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, IN

    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.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    It was an On-Campus Interview, which was mostly behavioural or about my resume. A lot of the questions revolved around strengths and weaknesses, instances where I had to prioritise, or when I had to choose between conflicting decisions. The interviewer was extremely friendly and I enjoyed talking to him. I think they were mostly testing if I was easy to work with and if my experiences matched the values of the company.
