    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Cummins (Houghton, MI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was a campus interview at the career fair. I interviewed for 2 consecutive years with cummins and I got the same treatment both the times.
    The standard practice at Cummins is that while one company representative questions a candidate, another company representative will record the answers in a laptop and pass it on to the HR department.
    Even though I felt I did great in both my interviews in 2016 and 2017 with so many experiences to share from my 3 years of prior work experience, I have still not received any reply from cummins HR department after over 13 months since the first interview and 1 months since the second interview.
    It is crazy how the HR people don't get back to you with a YES, NO or even a PLEASE WAIT. I just feel disrespected and neglected by this behavior of theirs.
