Very unique interview process. Candidates are asked to present a 30 minute overview technical project they worked on to a group of engineers. The group then have the opportunity asked the candidate questions about the project to gauge their technical understanding.

    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.

    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.

    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.
