    I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great location in Potts Point
    -Get to work with some great people
    - Work-life balance

    Cons

    - No development plans or opportunities for staff
    - A lot o red tape and politics at the top
    - People are very resistant to change

    Advice to Management

    Invest time and money into your staff. Reward and praise them and embrace change and new technology. General praise for the "group" once a year is not enough. Senior management should refrain from telling staff "this is how it is" deal with it.

    Engineering Summer Placement Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Derby, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Derby, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied online, then took the online tests and was invited to an assessment day in Derby. The assessment day consisted of a motivation interview, a technical interview and a group project. The technical interview was one hour long and the questions were very specific to Rolls-Royce and jet engines. The group project was quite fun though.
