    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    2 day round-robin interview process. First day was a general overview with all of the other candidates about the direction of the company and an overview. Later we split into smaller groups for more specified details on the position and to ask questions. After that we were assigned into 4 person teams for engineering olympics which was a series of tasks to accomplish in 45 minutes and ranked on the outcome. Finally that day we had a networking event with upper management and alumni from the program. That second day was the actual interview which was panel style and about an hour long with an engineer, an HR representative, and a Vice President of the specific business unit.

    Embedded Software Engineer Co-Op Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Automation (Mayfield Heights, Cuyahoga, OH) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly smooth. I was contacted by a senior engineer for a 30-minute technical phone screen. Afterwards, I was invited to their Mayfield Heights campus for an on-site interview. The day consisted of three 30-minute 1:1 interviews with engineers in the department, a tour of the facility, and lunch. Everyone I spoke to was very cordial and respectful, and I didn't feel very pressured at all. All the interviews followed roughly the same format: ask about my resume, some technical questions, and a whiteboard problem. None of the questions were particularly tricky, and they didn't ask any behavioral ("STAR") questions. One week later, they responded with an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rockwell Automation in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process took about 2 weeks, I cleared the HR round. They asked only the questions related to my resume. The interview went well but they cancelled the positions so the procedure went nowhere. It was a good experience. The interviewer lady seemed impressed. At least she contacted me for letting me know that the positions were cancelled.

    Supply Planner Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Automation (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    I applied for a supply planner position with Rockwell Automation and received a response within a week. We set up a date and time for the initial phone interview. Unfortunately, I had to reschedule (granted this was unprofessional on my part, I had a family emergency). We decided on the afternoon the following day. The time came and went and I did not receive a call. Thirty minutes later I called the HR rep. and she did not answer so I left a voicemail. Two hours later she called back, did not even acknowledge she missed the interview. We scheduled a new time for a couple days later. Again, I waited around for the phone call but never received it and could not reach her by phone. At this point I had taken time from my work schedule for these interviews. I emailed her back and declined any further interview attempts but never received any response. This was highly unprofessional and I was very disappointed at their interview process.
