    Senior Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through the RR Website for a Buyer Position. Received a call back from a recruiter in Ohio for a phone screening about a week after submitting application. Received a call from a different local recruiter for a follow-up discussion the next day, who then referred me to the hiring manager for a phone interview. Setup a phone interview 7 days after speaking with local recruiter. About a week later, finally heard back from the hiring manager and setup an in person interview. I was offered a job the day after the formal interview, but respectfully declined due to the low offer. Very lengthy process which is pretty standard for such a large company.

    Interview Questions

    • Where do you see yourself in 5 years, why do you want to work for this company, etc.. Standard interview questions. Connected well with the hiring manager, but couldn't accept the position.   2 Answers

    I got the interview through meeting a college recruiter on my campus. The next day I had an hour long phone interview. The college recruiter was friendly and the phone interviewer was very helpful in explaining some of the questions.
