Engineer I Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
Interviewed at General Motors
Interview Details I got referred to get my resume to a hiring manager. A few weeks later, I got a phone cal for an informal interview. There was like 3 easy questions about myself and given the chance to ask for questions. It lasted for about 15 minutes Then invited for on-site interview with 2 people interviewed me. Mostly behavior questions.
Interview Question – There really wasn' t one Answer Question
Lead Software Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at General Motors in June 2014.
Interview Details Applied to several jobs that looked interesting over many months. Received a call back and phone interview for one, but no request for on-site interview. Finally, one of my friends got hired and with his recommendation I was contacted about a Lead Developer position. Did the phone interview. Followed up with on-site. Then an offer
Interview Question – On the phone and on-site the interviewer asked several situational problem solving questions eliciting me to respond with examples from my own work experience. However, on-site they also gave me a coding test with requirements for small programs and 4 SQL statements. The requirements were simple, but more academic than real world. (I have never been paid to write a Fibonacci code generator or a Palindrome detector) Anyone who has been out of college for 20+ plus years would require at least 10 minutes per question just to dust of the cob webs, and the test had a 30 minute time limit. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Did not need to negotiate as they offered me what I asked for. However, if you make it this far and they don't offer you what you asked for, I recommend you negotiate. They need a lot of good people, and if you get past their screening process you are good, and they cannot afford to screw with you over money.
