    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I have applied on RR website. After this first step, they asked me to do some tests on-line. The result was positive, then they asked me to go to Derby for the assessment center. During the assessment I have repeated the language test that I already had on-line. Then, I had an interview to present myself to the interviewer, that was very kind with me. After the lunch, with the other guys that were there we had a teamwork exercise. Then, I had my technical interview. It was a very long day, but a wonderful experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    A 30 mins interview regarding the engineering processes of the an airplane engine. They don't get too technical but they want to know whether you have the solid foundation of an engineer. They did ask questions pertaining to your personality but they looked like they mostly decided they wanted to hire you or not from your resume. So if they liked your resume and experiences, you probably won't have too much of a problem

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Melbourne (Australia)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer asked me some questions about my past projects only. Maybe because it was long line phone interview, the sound quality affected my interview somehow, now a big deal anyway.
