    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Lafayette, IN (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (West Lafayette, IN (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    After you apply to the general "engineering internship" position, they will send you an email about taking the online assessments. If your scores are acceptable, they will look for a manager wanting to hire someone with your qualifications. You will then be emailed about the positions you may interview for. If you would like to take the interview, you email them back and set up a time with the hiring manager. In my experience, both of my interviews were over the phone( March 2017 for Summer 2017 and September 2017 for Summer 2018). They will ask you what you will add to the company and things you may be interested in doing. After the interview they will take 1-2 weeks to get back to you about your offer. If you are given an offer, you usually have 2 weeks to accept it. (Pro tip: Don't mention anything about cars. They don't own that company anymore. )

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    The initial step was to fill out application questions. You then automatically get invited to complete online tests. If you are successful, your application is reviewed and then you may be invited to an assessment centre. This was a half day assessment centre consisting of 2 interviews and a group task. One interview was competency based, one was technical.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Derby, England

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Derby, England).

    Interview

    Applied online, got an invite for online assessments after a few days and within a few hours got a notification that I passed that stage. I had a very quick experience with Rolls Royce, within a few days they had checked my resume and motivation and the online status changed to 'to be invited'. It did take an additional 1,5 week for me to actually receive an invite for the assessment centre in Derby, UK. They paid for my flight & necessary accommodation to attend the assessment centre.

    The assessment centre consisted of a brief presentation about yourself followed by a compentency interview. Then we had a technical interview, which was quite easy in my opinion as the interviewer tried to only ask questions in the fields I was comfortable in. Lastly there was a group exercize, it was fun but I struggled a little with the strong British accents of the fellow interviewees, whom, due to the time pressure of the exercise, started to talk very fast.
