    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Cedar Rapids, IA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Long phone discussion with hiring manager followed by an onsite interview. The manager was a very enthusiastic positive person as was the interview. I was told Rockwell Collins would get back to me in 2-3 weeks. This is the only Company I interviewed with in person that I never heard from again. I consider this to be unacceptable behavior in this day and age where it takes only moments to send an email or text.

    Interview Questions

    • I had interned with Rockwell the year before, and was well known in the Company. The Manager had contacted me personally regarding the position, and our discussions during the on site interview was behavioral and in depth discussion of the scope of the position.   Answer Question

    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 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.
