    Product Marketing Co-op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in State College, PA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Met a recruiter at my university career fair, all of the recruiters I talked to were extremely friendly. They didn't have the position listing I had seen online, so they took my email. About an hour later I received an email with a scheduled interview the next day. The interview was only scheduled for a half an hour, and thus there were very few questions. What questions there were were very normal and easy to predict based on the application. Could tell what the wanted and all of the concerns. Very open to questions about the company.

    Got my application through, had a phone interview, then an "On-Demand" interview (recorded answers, no option to re-record).

    Technician, Engineering Senior Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Automation (Eden Prairie, MN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Straight forward interview process. First a phone screen with the engineering manager. Followed by an on-site tour and interview. Interview was broken into 2 sets with 2 interviewers each. Most questions were focused on background and experience. Fairly casual atmosphere with very little HR feel to the interview. Meaning no silly questions about your weaknesses or where you see yourself in 5 years. Just questions to determine your ability to do the job. The questioned were not scripted or predetermined. The interviewers were very helpful about answering questions about the company culture and environment.
