    Product Support Manager Naval Propulsion Systems Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Walpole, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The actual interview with the Dept Mgr and staff was very pleasant and I think they are really great people! I would have been very happy to work with them, support the dept, and workout the needed processes to support the Navy programs. The problem I found extremely unpleasant was the HR process in setting up the interview, and the follow up with HR. The first person I spoke with at HR was very pleasant and friendly, after that it was silence with no follow up for months even with the dept mgr suggesting I was an excellent candidate and that I would hear from them within a week or two. After the interview, it took HR over 4 months to follow up.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Have interviewed as interviewee and interviewer for this position. It is three part. The generic tell me about your self, a case study and some scripted questions. They have to read from the script. HR is outsourced and very mechanical. Don't be discouraged. Often managers go directly by the book and are looking for a very specify skill or experience. Keep applying as some managers can see talent even if it misses a few words on the resume.

    Interview Questions

    • All the standard 'tell me about a time.....'; you failed, led a big project, dealt with a difficult coworker etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Offers are fro outsourced HR. I was told they have a very strict formula they go by. I have not seen much movement from them but try. Your advancement once hired is capped by % raises you are allowed. Very difficult to 'catch up'.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce.

    Interview

    Very "comfortable" behavioral interview. Went through and studied typical behaviorlal interview questions and got an in person interview. Also spent a lot of time discussing things off of "the cheat sheet." Discussed career aspirations, and more fun topics as well. Over all a very short (about 30 minute) interview that became an hour long (which can be good).

    Interview

    I went through a 30 minute telephone interview with two managers. It was difficult to hear both interviewers since they had placed me on speaker phone. We discussed my resume and past employment experience for most of the interview. They asked some behavioral questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    On-site interview for Controls and Data Services, subsidiary of RR, in Indianapolis, IN.
    Flew me out and put me up in a nice hotel right in downtown Indie. Thursday night was a networking event at a local restaurant, where you could talk to current employees and managers about yourself and interests in a casual atmosphere. Friday they provided transportation to the employment center, where you got your actual itinerary and the President of CDS talked about the company.
    Two interviews: organizational fit, aka personality, and technical. Both were pretty straight forward and by upper level managers within the company; interviews lasted an hour each. Lunch was with a panel of young employees where we could "ask anything".
    Interview was second week of October, still haven't heard back and it's third week of November.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I had a first round interview with HR where they asked me basic behavioral questions, except for a question where they asked me to name a current event and how it affects the company. It took them over two months to get back to me and schedule a second interview with an engineer. The second interview was much more lax with a few behavioral questions and questions about relevant school projects and previous experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Half hour long preliminary phone interview. Seemed more geared toward determining if I was a good philosophical/personality fit for their corporate culture. There also seemed to be a bit of "guidance" toward what might be an acceptable salary range to ask for, which was about $10K lower than I was thinking would be appropriate.
