Mechanical Development Engineer Interview

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cummins in October 2015.

Interview

Fairly easy application process as I had applied through the university recruitment website and was called for an on campus interview within two weeks.
The first round was a behavioral interview with two interviewers, who asked 4 basic behavioral questions and then opened the floor for questions from me.
They were very cordial and made me feel very comfortable during the whole interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cummins (Fort Collins, CO) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I handed in my resume during a campus career fair and was asked to interview several weeks later. Shortly after, I was offered a job, however little information was given on the role I was accepting and there was no opportunity to negotiate terms. It seemed that the hiring process was a little hasty and very little communication took place between my interview and my arrival for my first day of work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cummins (Columbus, IN) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter at the University Career Fair and was called later that night for a 1 on 1 interview the next morning with a manager. Typical behavioral questions were asked before we moved on to more in depth questions regarding the job and my background. We spoke about what the position would entail and whether or not it would suit me, and also went into great detail on my past experiences. They seem to look for people with interest in their industry by the candidate's hobbies, etc. Following the 1 on 1, I was called 3 weeks later to schedule a phone interview with a hiring manager. At the end of the phone interview, I was extended a verbal offer and received the official offer via email 2 weeks later. Everyone I had spoken to throughout the interviewing process were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and approachable.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Cummins in September 2010.

    Interview

    There was a 3 step interview process. The first interview was a behavioral interview that lasted about 30 minutes. The second interview was a 1:1 with my hiring manager. He asked more questions about the job and my experience. The final interview was more or less Cummins selling themselves to me.

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate. From what I've heard, there is strictly no negotiating for entry level positions. Don't let that keep you from trying, however.
