Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cummins.

Interview

I received an email about setting up an initial behavioral interview. I was interviewed the next week and was eventually emailed about another phone call, but for more of a company sales pitch rather than another interview. After telling them which department I would be interested in, I received an offer for employment about a week later.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Cummins in February 2014.

    Interview

    Applied in October through the online portal. Was contacted in Feb of the next year. The first round was a simple HR round with general behavioral questions. The second round was more technical. I did not apply for the position they interviewed me for and I really dont understand their policy of interviewing people for positions they have no idea about. I could not answer the questions properly and was sent the reject letter the day after the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • None. The questions were typical questions related to that field and could have been answered by any professional who has decent technical knowledge.   Answer Question

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview with Cummins for a summer internship position. The interview started with typical behavioral questions, tell me about yourself, what is your strength, what is your weakness, tell me about a time that you solved a problem, tell me a bout a time that you used a new technology, etc. Then I was asked some technical questions. Pretty routine stuff about my research.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cummins in February 2011.

    Interview

    First I was given a packet of questions to answer about myself and situations I have been in via email. I filled it in and emailed it back. A couple days later I was called and was told they liked me and I could expect a phone interview in a few days. I was called by the man who would be my manager, and he asked me questions from my resume and schooling in engineering for about a half hour. I got a job offer soon after
