    Anonymous Employee in Cedar Rapids, IA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The time it took between submitting my application and setting up ma interview was just under 2 weeks. The interview was a 45 minute phone call which was mostly composed of behavioral questions. It was both pleasant but still formal. An offer was extended through HR exactly one week later with a one week acceptance period. Any questions about the position and scheduling were answered well and promptly by both HR and the interviewer/future supervisor.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins in December 2016.

    Interview

    They told me a lot about the company and asked about my experiences. I applied on LinkedIn and I got a call from the recruiter. I then had an interview with two managers before I finally knew if I got the job or not. I never had to do a video interview or an on site interview. I just did 3 phone interviews. The first was a phone screen from the recruiter, next was a manager, then another manager.

    AVWX Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    No interview process - hire-on from co-op. For my co-op, I went to career fair on campus and talked to recruiters there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Milwaukee, WI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview went great. I interviewed with the company in Wisconsin as part of a conference. The lady was very enthusiastic and ended up talking most of the interview. She only asked about five behavioral questions. I am a pretty average student, however, she was so impressed by my personality that at the end of the interview she offered me the internship on the spot. Great company, really down to earth people.
