    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got a call to set up a phone interview within a week. Interviewed and was offered a position within another week. Whole process took 2 weeks.
    Interview was really relaxed and the managers were very friendly. It was more that they wanted to see if I would be a good personality for for the team, than my qualifications. (They already saw my resume so they knew I could do the job)They asked a lot of scenario questions, some specific to my past positions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Cedar Rapids, IA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview followed by on-site panel-based interview. The panel-based interview was essentially a presentation about yourself, skills, and experience to avoid repeat questions. Then I was given a tour and ample time for questions about just about every aspect of the job. The environment was pretty positive and the interviewers seemed really interested in getting to know you as a prospective employee.

I was on the phone with the hiring manager the following Wednesday, and on-site the Wednesday after that. The on-site interview went from 8am to 4pm, and before 5pm I was told by HR that they would be making an offer!

    Electronics Technician Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Cedar Rapids, IA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    For the interview I was brought into an unoccupied office and sat down at a table with two managers and an electrical engineer.

    There were very few technical questions during the course of the interview. I was asked to explain in general, my educational background, experience level and why I was interested in the job.

    Many of the questions seemed out of place for an interview for a technical position. They were related more to a management position. Most questions were about social interaction and diversity.

    On a side note, you will be required to pass a written electronics skills exam before you will be interviewed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was pretty straightforward, I applied for the position on their website, and within a day or two they reached out to me in order to set up an interview. Seeing as I was living a couple of hundred miles from the company location and still in classes in university, the interview was conducted over the phone by two people: the employee who would be serving as my mentor if I got the position as well as the manager of the project I would be working on. The first half of the interview was them describing what the position would entail, then asked me some questions that were intended to gauge me as a person and how I would fit on the team, such as how I have handled conflict with coworkers/peers in the past, how I respond to negative situations, failure, etc. There were few questions asked about my resume, but it was apparent that they had it in front of them during the interview. The interview itself only took about half an hour, and I got a call back less than an hour later offering me the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Cedar Rapids, IA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was called in for an on-site interview after a phone screen. The company made flight/hotel reservations and made it a very smooth process. I had four different interviews with a total of 7 managers over a period of three hours. Questions were mostly behavioural and from the resume. The responsibilities of the position and the overall structure of the company was explained quite clearly. All candidates were also taken around to show the simulators and bench testing area. At the end, we were taken out for lunch as well.
    However, the managers did not get back to me about the results of the interview for more than two weeks, until I sent out e-mails and made phone calls regarding the update of my application. This was really disappointing since the overall process was quite quick and they did they that they would get back to me.
