    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was contact through a recruiter for a position for a technical writer/trainer with Rockwell Collins in their Marina del Rey site. I was told that I would be interviewed by two people, a program manager and another tech writer for the initial phone screen. Both were based in Bethseda, MD. Only one interviewer was initially on the 30 min call. The second interviewer, the PM , joined the call the last 10 mins. She was calling in from a cell phone and there was so much static that I couldn't hear her clearly. After 10 mins, she said that the interview was over. After waiting a week, I contacted the recruiter and they had heard nothing positive or negatively about a 2nd interview. Three weeks went by and I saw that the position was no longer listed on the RC website. I have interviewed many times over the years but have never experienced such unprofessional follow up. A phone call one way or the other would have been nice. I would not want to work with such a company if this is the way they treat candidates who prepare for interviews and hope to hear something back in a reasonable amount of time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Very well organized. Was flown out to Houston and was giving a rental car and hotel for the night. Interview was a panel of 5, 2 of which were managers, the other were senior avwx folks. Most of the questions were related to the ability/knowledge to work the job and if I would be able to work shift work. The interview was a while ago, I don't believe there were any behavior questions. If there were, it wasn't but one or two.
