    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at GE.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted and asked to first complete a questionnaire - mostly behavioural.
    A week after I had a telephonic interview with that manager - behavioural
    A week after that I had a one on one interview still with the same manager - technical/ behavioural
    2 weeks after that I had a Skype interview with the manager from Chicago - technical/ behavioural
    1 week after that interview I had another telephonic interview with the HR from the UK - behavioural

    It was almost 2 months before I received an offer from GE, however its still contingent to my fingerprint testing being clear.

    You also have to send in all documents, certificates, references and a thorough background check is done.

    The interviews are simple but you must have many examples and situations to discuss. The people were exceptionally friendly as well.

    The salary offered was good but I requested a review/ negotiation for the possibility of a better package.

    No one ever asked me about my desired salary or knew my current salary - only after the HR interview was I given a form to fill to stipulate my desired salary.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions started with "tell me about a time when"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I am currently negotiating. received the offer but sent an email through to ask if the offer could be reviewed as it was very close to current. They said it should be another 2 weeks before I know.

    interview process was straight forward and well laid out. I met with three other people including the hiring manager. they told me about their company and asked me about myself. the position was that of an engineer and they laid out the job description in detail. the team was great and the working hours were flexible. the salary was good too.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at GE.

    Interview Details

    Campus Hiring Process.
    1. First round of written exam which included aptitude and technical questionnaire.
    2. 1 Technical round done by the hiring manager which lasted for about 45 minutes.
    3. 1 HR interview that lasted for about 30 minutes.
    Written examination is used as a screening procedure to weed out the weak candidates and to give the top candidates enough time to interview. Technical round was probably the deciding round as the HR round was more like standard STAR questions which were easy to tackle.

    Interview Questions
    • All technical questions were based on fundamentals and problem solving approach.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation as I got the offer through campus placement.
