Rockwell Automation – Why Work With Us?


Your Future at Rockwell Automation

Automation has changed more in the last 20 years than in the previous 100.  As we enter the age of The Connected Enterprise, that pace is just going to keep accelerating – new innovation, awe-inspiring ideas, changes that will make the world more productive and sustainable.  To make our vision a reality, we need the brightest talent and the best creative ideas.

Take a moment to look – see if this is a place that welcomes who you are and what you do, with enough challenge to keep you energized and enough reward to make you feel valued for your unique contributions.  You have a life.  Now, you can have an engineering career that fulfills your dreams.

What It’s Like to Work Here.

Some companies talk about diversity. As a global organization, we live it.

Individuality is respected and celebrated. A team of people who all look and act and think the same? That will get us … nowhere. Who you are, where you’ve been and what you’ve done, your ideas and experiences – it’s this individuality that makes us collectively unbeatable.

We welcome great minds. Different thinkers. Dreamers. And doers.
Are you an innovator? Do you look at a problem and think, “I can solve that”? Does the status quo bore you? When you find your passion, do you refuse to let anything stand in your way? Good. Us too.

We want to engage you. We measure our employee engagement because we want to know what you like and what you don’t. There are rewards for being open and candid in your communication.

We have high expectations of our people to take action and calculated risks. Sometimes you’ll need to go outside of your comfort zone to take on new responsibilities, to do things differently than you have done before.

We want people who can help us realize our vision to be the most valued global provider of innovative industrial automation and information products, services and solutions.

    I have been working at Rockwell Automation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    What I love most about Rockwell is the ability to develop yourself into many different roles in different functions of the business. In my career I have been able to do different technical and commercial roles within the sales team, manage a services business, manage a project engineering business, and now a regional business unit. In each job I have been able to experience different aspects of our industries, market, and gain very different skills in each role that allow me to bring broad experience to everything I do. I love to learn every day, and in all of my roles, each one brings new opportunities to develop.

    Cons

    The processes and procedures of a large global company are sometimes to slow to develop and create the feeling or barriers in your ability to accomplish change at the speed many would see in a smaller company.

    Advice to Management

    Improve speed of change and continue to drive improvements to focus on our customers. Continue to allow employees to take on new challenges across multiple aspects of the business. This is the reason why I stay around, I always feel challenged, and am able to freely provide my opinion.

    Lab Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rockwell Automation (Cambridge, ON) in March 2017.

    Interview

    4 steps, online application, 5 minute phone interview to basically confirm that i meet the minimum qualifications of the job, followed by 20 min phone interview with hiring manager to give basic details about why I would be a good fit for the position, and final hour long on site interview in Cambridge. The final interview was very casual and the managers seemed more interested in getting to know me then actually assessing my skills for the position at this point. This was followed by a short tour of the facility.
