    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

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Cedar Rapids, IA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, got an email from HR requesting to setup a phone interview with some hiring managers. After scheduling the date I waited and got the call. Interview was very straightforward, asked me to go over my resume and talk about any highlights on my resume that I want them to know about. After a brief overview of my resume where I talked about anything I thought would be relevant to the job they started asking questions. Asked a couple of questions to test my knowledge, I was honest when I didnt know and answered when I did, questions weren't hard by any means. Focused on my projects, experiences, and relevant courses. Relaxed interview, they were nice. Got an offer a week later after only one 30-minute phone interview.
