    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Columbus, IN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online for a posted position on their website. About 2 weeks after submitting my application , I got an email for a phone interview. Scheduled the interview. It seemed like it was conducted by a third party (not Rolls-Royce HR). The interview was only 30 minutes long. Standard questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Terre Haute, IN) in October 2014.

    Interview

    First had a face to face with one person interview. Had a second interview with a hiring manager two weeks later over the phone. Each interview lasted about 45 mins with very easy to no technical questions. Really tried to determine which engineering areas would be a good fit for them and the areas I was interested in working in.

    Interview

    My experience with Aero Engine Controls (AEC) was nothing but exceptional. The communication from Rolls-Royce was efficient, well planned and professional. I was continuously impressed with detailed and prompt information. The culture at AEC seemed professional and yet friendly and relaxed. I was very pleased overall with my experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Derby, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    After submission of CV, Covering Questions and Online Test I was invited to interview at the assessment centre. The day itself was interesting but didn't inspire me to work for the company. The day involved:
    - Validation of Online Test Result
    - Presentation/ Interview
    - Group Exercise
    - Technical Interview
    I performed poorly in group exercise because I believe they were looking for what I would describe as an obnoxious form of leadership, and placed this is the highest regard.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Derby, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online as soon as it became open. CV, cover letter and simple answer to a question. Then had 7 days to complete 4 tests. They were numerical, logical reasoning, SJT and verbal communication tests. A week later I was invited to an assessment centre. This was quite tough as it was a whole day of interviews and tasks. There were technical and competency interviews aswell as a quite tough group task. Competency interview was quite standard with questions about myself. Had to prepare a presentation about myself to show off my abilities and answer questions about it. The technical interview was a test of though process and not really knowledge. But I would recommend reading up on any previous work relating to the field your applying for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce in October 2016.

    Interview

    First a lengthy application. Then the standard tests. Numerical and decision based. Not too difficult, a clear calm mind will get you through. Then assessment day is next. The assessors are very nice and work in the same subject area or around it that you apply for. There is another numerical test, a presentation, competency interview, group exercise and technical skills interview. I was very scared about the technical skills but rest assured its not designed to be overly challenging, its to see how you think and how good you are at being a problem solver.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you have influenced others to get a desired outcome?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    This was an internship so no negotiation process.
