Senior Electrical Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Wilsonville, OR
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Wilsonville, OR) in January 2012.

Interview

One on ones with some managers and principal engineers. group interview with some of the other team members. Overall 8 hour day of interviews. Buckle up. Managers were very friendly and just talked about work/life balance and the area. It seemed like getting hired was a done deal - it was very informal. Then the gauntlet began. The group meetings were with some pretty arrogant engineers who responded to my resume as if they had it beaten and did better work in their career. The other one on ones with the principal engineers didn't go very well either. They didn't seem interested in anything other than the exact questions they were looking for. In one example, there was some code an engineer had me review for a problem it took their entire team months to find! But he expected me to find it in 5 minutes in an interview. So the interview was pretty stressful, I'm guessing they were trying to find out how I thought under pressure and how I handled stressful situations? I got an offer and took the job, so I'm not sure what that says.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rockwell Collins (Cedar Rapids, IA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Met prospective manager on campus and had contact for a couple of months, culminating in a phone interview prior to the on-site invitation. Had to give a presentation to a group of staff members. Following this, met with prospective co-workers, the hiring manager and mentor-to-be. Overall was a positive experience. Each interviewer had behavioral questions in store. The two interviewers following the group lunch were prepared with some probing technical questions that they had in mind. Didn't get the job after all - probably a sign of the "buyers' " market that exists in the current economy - but no grudges held. The only issue is the "We'll tell you one way or another" at the end, which translates to, "If we want you, we'll call, otherwise you'll only hear an answer if you coax one out of us". But this is probably commonplace in many companies unfortunately. The other issue is the location of the company - Having resided mainly in large metro areas on the East Coast, relocating to Iowa would indeed be a letdown for myself personally. I was grappling with how I would be able to live there beyond two years if I were to get the job. I'm actually glad in retrospect that the decision was made for me ...

    RC has company recruiters that extend and handle the offers. Not sure if that is for all cases.
