    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Sterling, VA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    After the online application there came a call for a in person interview. Time and date were arranged by phone and confirmed by e-mail. I showed up at the appointed time and was met propmtly by the HR person. I was interviewed by a quality person from the company in a very professional manner. The conversation covered my experence and qualifications. The interviewer was knowledgable and friendly. The company culture was relaxed in that few coats and ties were visible but no blue jeans allowed. The work areas were clean and well organised. After my interview the HR person gave me a great tour that answered all of my remaining questions. All in all Rockwell Collins appeared to be a great place to work and I wish they had sellected me.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Melbourne, FL).

    Interview

    Submitted resume on line. After 3 weeks, a recruiter called and asked standard questions from the job description, and little bit about me like tell me your 3 best skills what are your 3 best qualities, etc. Then in a week a hiring manager called, we chatted about my resume, why I left previous employer, what projects I worked on etc. Then in a week I had job interview(s) at Rockwell Collins in Melbourne, FL. I talked to 4 engineers, 2 managers, and 1 HR person. They were all very nice. One of them showed me their lab where they integrate/test radars. It was very interesting to see. Engineers seem to be smart guys. I was not the best fit for the position. All the interviews took half a day 8:30-12:30. I got impression it would be a nice environment to work in, and they are nice people. They wanted to see if you would be happy working there, and if you would like the work. So, you have to convince them that you really would like the job.
    If you can easily move (no kids, no house), mention it to recruiters because it seemed they were looking to be as cheap as possible on relocation.
    The recruiter was supposed to call me within 3 days and tell me the decision they made, but he did not. Then, I called him on the fifth day after the interview, left a message, and he returned the call.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins in August 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online for a Software Engineer position, after one month I got a call from the hiring manager asking me some basic questions about my education, two weeks later they flew me to their HQ in Cedar rapids, IA. I had a whole day interview with different teams, asking me about my resume and some behavioral questions, three engineering managers took me to lunch in-between interviews. I was surprised for an entry level position they asked only three technical questions.
    I'm still waiting for the outcome.
