    Performance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN (US)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Interview was definitely harder than I expected. The first question made me put all my cards on the table. The questions were geared toward academic life, so that can be good if you dont have any prior experience. 3 technical questions, but if you are a true aerospace engineer, they shouldnt cause a problem.

    LDP Interview

    Declined Offer
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN (US)) in September 2009.

    Interview

    The LDP hiring process comprises of (usually) an on campus interview, followed by an on site assessment. The assessment has 3 or 4 parts -- generally: a team assignment, and individual opportunity to convey technical knowledge, and a standard behavioral interview. Oh, and an online test called a psychometric test.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN (US)).

    Interview

    The hiring process took about 10 weeks from application to offer acceptance. It was the most unorganized process I've ever experienced, but I'd like to think this is due to 1 inefficient recruiter.

    Applied in August and received an email request for a phone interview 2 weeks later. About a week later I received an email request from a different recruiter for a face-to-face interview in Indianapolis. Within a day or so they had organized my flight and hotel and forwarded me interview confirmation.
    I interviewed about a week later.
    The interview was easy. They asked questions about my background, told me about the position and their expectations and gave me a brief tour of the facility. Most of the discussion was me asking questions.
    The day after my interview I received an email from the initial phone interview recruiter stating that I will no longer be in contact with her (or the second recruiter) but will need to contact a new person going forward. okay....
    I received an offer the next day via phone, but didn't receive the letter for a week. I countered the very next day and didn't receive an update for a week. This negotiation untimeliness made this process extremely long and tiring. When I was lucky enough to get in touch with the new recruiter she was disorganized and untimely. We went back and forth over PTO, base salary and start date. Start date constantly changed because it took so long for them to counter.

    Final paperwork was signed on week 10 and I started 2-3 weeks later.
