    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wilsonville, OR

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Wilsonville, OR).

    Interview

    Started off with a phone interview with a team manager for about an hour, covering my academic background, work experience, interest in the position, etc. A week later, had a shorter call 10 minute call with another manager mostly centered around scheduling time for an onsite interview.

    Onsite interview was split between the two managers in the morning, primarily covering behavioral questions, past experiences (both technical & non-technical), my career plans, the products & services designed there, and high-level discussion of engineering & avionics industry. Heavy emphasis throughout the day on behavioral questions.

    Went for lunch and came back in the afternoon for 3 rounds of technical interviews with design engineers. Covered basics across analog & digital design (fairly FPGA heavy) and some questions about past projects on my resume.

    Overall not too stressful - definitely leaned on the longer side though, and by 4 p.m. I was off my game. Received an offer the following Monday.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins.

    Interview

    Applied through the company website, received email message inviting me to interview.
    I was told I would hear back within 3 weeks as I was selected to move on to the next step. When I did not hear back, I sent a follow up email to the interviewer and did not receive a reply.

    This is unprofessional conduct. It sheds light on how this person treats others.

    I sent a follow up to the HR email that initially invited me and I received a reply the position was filled.

    I have no doubt this is an outstanding company. I respect how the interview process can be demanding, and all I ask as a prospect, is keep your word about follow up. Many candidates go through much effort to meet with you.

    My negative experience is with the interviewer, and I would welcome another interview with another department.

    Interview Questions

    • My background, what I bring to the position, and the irrelevant "what are my weaknesses" question.   1 Answer
