    CP&S LDP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rockwell Automation (Milwaukee, WI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward, nothing outside the typical interview questions. The program actually isn't related to leadership, and I was quite disappointed that the program did not represent what I applied for. I was quickly turned off by the company. On the tour, their empty offices and empty floors made me skeptical about joining their company, as I became unsure about the company's future. Everything in the building seemed to be outdated.

    Two day event:
    First day you learn about the company, second day the company learns about you.

    Don't ask stupid questions.

    Be able to demonstrate a clear understanding of a engineering concept that you have recently used.

    Associate Embedded Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mayfield Heights, Cuyahoga, OH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rockwell Automation (Mayfield Heights, Cuyahoga, OH) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The phone interview was very casual and I felt went poorly because the interviewing engineer was awkward. For the in-person interview it was 4 parts over 4 hours, in the same room. It started with the program manager who just wanted to get a feel for who I was and so on. The next three interviews were all the same into as to who I was and my experience and then it was all coding from there on. Each Interviewer asked several code questions, both C and C++.
