    I applied through college career fair. Received a phone interview request one week later. The interview was 30 minutes. Asked general behavior questions based on the resume. It was a little awkward since he was typing as I was answering the questions so he didn't pay as much attention to my answers. Followed with basic introduction to their fuel system department. Also need to submit profile on their online system.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cummins (State College, PA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I'm an international graduate student. This is my first month at the United States and my first time to a career fair. The interviewer was so nice and patient. He repeated his questions for several times to help me understand him because my English was not very good. A beautiful girl who was also international sat beside the senior man and record my answers. The interview went smoothly and I got the chance of phone interview. I think they care a lot about what you have done. If you have some direct experience on engine design. You probably will get into the next round.

    Applied online. Met with recruiters at campus event =>> was asked to do an interview.

    Interview

    Applied through my university. First interview with as a sitdown 45 minute interview with a head engineer and then the second was a hour long technical interview over the phone. The whole process took about 2 months to complete. After the first interview, I knew that Cummins wasn't the place for me, but I decided I wanted to see the process through to the end. It was a good experience , but I was very happy to accept an offer elsewhere.
