    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN) in October 2013.

    Interview

    First step is one on one interviews, in which they ask you personal and technical questions. The second step is spending a day on their campus taking some more technical test and meeting people. The interview portion is a pretty standard one on one interview. Depending on what the expertise of the person interviewing you is where their questions will come from.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question for me was about a communication network. This was difficult because my area of focus is not communications and I have had very little exposure to this field.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Blacksburg, VA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Interview focused more on technical and personality type questions than career oriented ones. The interview style was two on one and both interviewers were laid back and friendly. When asking technical questions they wanted the simplest answer possible. The whole process took about 30 minutes. AEC seemed like a nice company to work for, but they are only based out of Indy.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were too difficult. The technical questions were pretty basic and open ended.   Answer Question

    Manufacturing Engineering Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Richmond, VA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was good at first. Good up front communication with a real recruiter in the their HR department. Recruiter gave me good info about the company and position and its potential for growth. Phone screen was good and good communication about what would be next in the process. But once I was not selected to go further for an in-person interview it reverted back to the all to familiar impersonal rejection email. No personal call back to give feedback on how to improve.

    Interview Questions

    • Actually there weren't really any tough questions. It was much more an information exchange rather than a phone screen.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    Applied on their website sometime in October and got an interview with them in February. First interview was on phone, lasted about 45 minutes and were mostly behavioral questions and what does RR do. About few days later got invited to on-day assessment in Indianapolis. They accommodated me very well and the night before the interview there was a mixer with about 15 other candidates and Rolls-Royce employees. The actual day of the assessment there was a presentation about my skills, 2 interviews, group exercises, math, reasoning tests and a discussion about your solution to the case study they give you. All in all, very difficult interview process. Make sure you know what RR does and be familiar with their products.
